Mitch Albom
“No life is a waste," the Blue Man said. "The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we're alone.”
Mitch Albom

Charles  de Lint
“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic -- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we're alone.”
Charles de Lint

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”
John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love

Carl Sagan
“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
Carl Sagan

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“I know that the molecules in my body are traceable to phenomena in the cosmos. That makes me want to grab people on the street and say: ‘Have you HEARD THIS?”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

John Donne
“No man is an island, entire of itself.”
John Donne, No man is an island – A selection from the prose

Tony Hillerman
“Everything is connected. The wing of the corn beetle affects the direction of the wind, the way the sand drifts, the way the light reflects into the eye of man beholding his reality. All is part of totality, and in this totality man finds his hozro, his way of walking in harmony, with beauty all around him.”
Tony Hillerman, The Ghostway

Gregory David Roberts
“But in a way you can say that after leaving the sea, after all those millions of years of living inside of the sea, we took the ocean with us. When a woman makes a baby, she gives it water, inside her body, to grow in. That water inside her body is almost exactly the same as the water of the sea. It is salty, by just the same amount. She makes a little ocean, in her body. And not only this. Our blood and our sweating, they are both salty, almost exactly like the water from the sea is salty. We carry oceans inside of us, in our blood and our sweat. And we are crying the oceans, in our tears.”
Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

Nikki Rowe
“There isn't any questioning the fact that some people enter your life, at the exact point of need, want or desire - it's sometimes a coincendence and most times fate, but whatever it is, I am certain it came to make me smile.”
Nikki Rowe

Maurice Merleau-Ponty
“We must therefore rediscover, after the natural world, the social world, not as an object or sum of objects, but as a permanent field or dimension of existence.”
Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception

John Muir
“A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm,
waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like
worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their
songs never cease. -John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914)”
John Muir

“People die from lack of shared empathy and affinity. By establishing social connectedness, we give hope a chance and the other can become heaven. ( "Le ciel c'est l'autre" )”
Erik Pevernagie

“The important element is the way in which all things are connected. Every thought and action sends shivers of energy into the world around us, which affects all creation. Perceiving the world as a web of connectedness helps us to overcome the feelings of separation that hold us back and cloud our vision. This connection with all life increases our sense of responsability for every move, every attitude, allowing us to see clearly that each soul does indeed make a difference to the whole.”
Emma Restall Orr, Druidry

“We can give happiness a chance: happiness is learnable. Life is a choice and happiness is a question of focusing, hearing and seeing the right things behind the appearances. It is a matter of finding out, differencing worthiness and irrelevance, connectedness and distantness, warmth and aloofness, brightness and dimness. Happiness is the lucky potential to steer friskily along the cliffs of the unknown avoiding the obstacles of narcissism and conceit. ( " Happiness blowing in the wind. " )”
Erik Pevernagie

“Along with the mystical wonderment and sense of ecological responsibility that comes with the recognition of connectedness, more disturbing images come to mind. When applied to economics, connectedness seems to take the form of chain stores, multinational corporations, and international trade treaties which wipe out local enterprise and indigenous culture. When I think of it in the realm of religion, I envision smug missionaries who have done such a good job of convincing native people everywhere that their World-Maker is the same as God, and by this shoddy sleight of hand have been steadily impoverishing the world of the great fecundity and complex localism of belief systems that capture truths outside the Western canon. And I wonder—if everything's connected, does that mean that everything can be manipulated and controlled centrally by those who know how to pull strings at strategic places?”
Malcolm Margolin

Alex Morritt
“How initially 'to get her in the sack' and subsequently to avoid 'her giving you the sack' are not identical dilemmas faced by the male species, but they sure have a bizarre habit of being bedfellows”

“I am not the lonely human, plunked down on earth to aimlessly wander. I am a part of that earth and not going anywhere- just like the spider up in the corner, the dust on the sill, and the cat I buried in the backyard. -Jamaica Ritcher.”
Jay Allison, This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women

“The relation to the other is not epistemological, but ethical, and the whole attempt to accomodate or account for the other within the confines of my experience already constitutes a breach of this fundamental ethical relation. The other is precisely that which cannot be the object of my experience in the sense of being completely manifest within it, and so cannot be construed as a phenomenon at all.”
David R. Cerbone

Jill Alexander Essbaum
“There are no accidents, Anna. Everything correlates. Everything connects. Every detail bears a consequence. One instant begets the next. And the next. And the next.”
Jill Alexander Essbaum, Hausfrau

Kahlil Gibran
“Speak not of peoples and laws and
Kingdoms, for the whole earth is
My birthplace and all humans are
My brothers.”
Kahlil Gibran, The Treasured Writings of Kahlil Gibran

Kare Anderson
“Try This Counterintuitive Way To Be Well-Liked:
One of the biggest misconceptions about connecting is seeking, first, to be liked. In fact, the counterintuitive way to get someone to like you is in knowing this core truth: If they like the way they feel when around you, they will like you. In fact, they will project onto you the character traits they most like in others, even if you have not yet exhibited them.
Conversely, if they do not like the way they act when around you, they will instinctively blame you for it, regardless of the true reason. They will project onto you some of the qualities they most dislike in others. What's worse, they will go out of their way to prove they are right, even in ways that damage their reputation as well as yours.”
Kare Anderson, Mutuality Matters More Living a Happy, Meaningful and Satisfying Life With Others

Paolo Giordano
“They weren't smiling and were looking in opposite directions, but it was as if their bodies flowed smoothly into each other's, through their arms and fingers. . . . There was a shared space between their bodies, the confines of which were not well delineated, from which nothing seemed to be missing and in which the air seemed motionless, undisturbed.”
Paolo Giordano, The Solitude of Prime Numbers

“We feel responsibility but we never let ourselves feel connectedness.”
Vatsal Surti, To Desire

Kare Anderson
“Remember the many compartments of the heart, the seed of what is possible. So much of who we are is defined by the places we hold for each other. For it is not our ingenuity that sets us apart, but our capacity for love, the possibility our way will be lit by grace. Our hearts prisms, chiseling out the colors of pure light.”
Kare Anderson, Getting What You Want: 2how to Reach Agreement and Resolve Conflict Every Time

Kare Anderson
“We tend to like each other better when walking, sitting or standing side by side or at right angles from each other.”
Kare Anderson, Mutuality Matters How You Can Create More Opportunity, Adventure & Friendship With Others

Hina Hashmi
“The universal mind has all the knowledge, discoveries of the present and the future. It’s up to us when we access the available resources which are waiting for us to move forward.”

“...a vida humana é convívio. Para o ser humano, viver é conviver. É justamente na convivência, na vida social e comunitária, que o ser humano se descobre e se realiza enquanto um ser moral e ético.”
Kátia Rocha, Ética e Cidadania no Setor Público

Henry David Thoreau
“We have the St. Vitus' dance, and cannot possibly keep our heads still”
Henry David Thoreau, Where I Lived, and What I Lived For

Dean Koontz
“If emotions were universal, then in one sense he was not alone, never had been alone, and never could be alone....No pain or happiness was unique. All humanity drank from the same river of emotion; and by drinking, every race, religion, and nationality became one indivisible species.”
Dean Koontz, Dean Koontz: Key to Midnight / Shattered / House of Thunder

Neale Donald Walsch
“...the Ultimate Truth: nothing exists in the universe that is separate from anything else. Everything is intrinsically connected, irrevocably interdependent, interactive, interwoven into the fabric of all of life.”
Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations With God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Vol. 2
