1.Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.
2.You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

4.The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.
5.Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin. Now, they are so subtle, they can milk you with two notes. They can make you feel like they told you the whole universe. But I don’t know that yet. All I got now is strength. Maybe if I keep singing, maybe I’ll get it.
6.Classifying the stars has helped materially in all studies of the structure of the universe.
7.Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul. Strictly speaking, therefore, all that is separate from us, all which Philosophy distinguishes as the ‘Not Me,’ that is, both nature and art, all other men and my own body, must be ranked under this name, ‘Nature.’
8.Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.

11.Life exists throughout the cosmos and is a consequence of matter in the universe.
12.I am deeply spiritual; I revel in those things that make for good – the things that we can do to shed a little light, to help place an oft-dissonant universe back in tune with itself… Long live art, long live friendship, long live the joy of life!
13.We don’t really have a place in the universe, as far as on a timeline. But nothing else does, either. Therefore every moment really is the most important moment that’s ever happened, including this moment right now.

18.Planet Earth is estimated to have a lifetime of nine billion years. And we’re right smack in the middle of our lifetime. We’ve been in the universe for 4.5 billion years. So, that should mean something. We should sort of take a look at where we came from and where we are going.

21.The universe seems neither benign nor hostile, merely indifferent.
22.It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

27.That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

30.The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
31.There is an orderliness in the universe, there is an unalterable law governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is no blind law; for no blind law can govern the conduct of living beings.
32.We inhabit a universe that is characterized by diversity.
33.The world, we are told, was made especially for man – a presumption not supported by all the facts. A numerous class of men are painfully astonished whenever they find anything, living or dead, in all God’s universe, which they cannot eat or render in some way what they call useful to themselves.
34.Mozart’s music is so pure and beautiful that I see it as a reflection of the inner beauty of the universe.

39.As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.
40.There was something undifferentiated and yet complete, which existed before Heaven and Earth. Soundless and formless, it depends on nothing and does not change. It operates everywhere and is free from danger. It may be considered the mother of the universe. I do not know its name; I call it Tao.
41.Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
42.The universe can take quite a while to deliver.
43.The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
44.It’s hard for anyone intelligent to be nonviolent. Everything in the universe does something when you start playing with his life, except the American Negro. He lays down and says, ‘Beat me, daddy.’
45.A broad margin of leisure is as beautiful in a man’s life as in a book. Haste makes waste, no less in life than in housekeeping. Keep the time, observe the hours of the universe, not of the cars.

47.He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe.

54.One of the most important decisions you’ll ever make is choosing the kind of universe you exist in: is it helpful and supportive or hostile and unsupportive? Your answer to this question will make all the difference in terms of how you live your life and what kind of Divine assistance you attract.
55.There is nothing your highest self wants more than peace. This peace makes you feel worthy of all of the richest blessings of the universe, and when you radiate this out into the world, it is returned to you without fail.
56.I heard what was said of the universe, heard it and heard it of several thousand years; it is middling well as far as it goes – but is that all?
57.Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?

59.The whole theory of the universe is directed unerringly to one single individual.
