“Our critics make us strong!
Our fears make us bold!
Our haters make us wise!
Our foes make us active!
Our obstacles make us passionate!
Our losses make us wealthy!
Our disappointments make us appointed!
Our unseen treasures give us a
known peace!

Whatever is designed against us will work for us!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Paul Hoffman
“... If the dead can come back to this earth and move unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; in the garish day and in the darkest night—amidst your happiest scenes and gloomiest hours—always, always; and if there be a soft breeze upon your cheek, it shall be my breath; or if the cool air fans your throbbing temple, it shall be my spirit passing by.”
Paul Hoffman, The Left Hand of God

Sanhita Baruah
“I'd rather be not the light in your life
The bright day might make me obscure
I'd rather be the cold darkness
For it remains, unseen, uncertain and unsure”
Sanhita Baruah, The Farewell and other poems

Susan Howatch
“The organist was almost at the end of the anthem’s long introduction, and as the crescendo increases the cathedral began to glitter before my eyes until I felt as if every stone in the building was vibrating in anticipation of the sweeping sword of sound from the Choir.

The note exploded in our midst, and at that moment I knew our creator had touched not only me but all of us, just as Harriet had touched that sculpture with a loving hand long ago, and in that touch I sensed the indestructible fidelity, the indescribable devotion and the inexhaustible energy of the creator as he shaped his creation, bringing life out of dead matter, wresting form continually from chaos. Nothing was ever lost, Harriet had said, and nothing was ever wasted because always, when the work was finally completed, every article of the created process, seen or unseen, kept or discarded, broken or mended – EVERYTHING was justified, glorified and redeemed.”
Susan Howatch

Munia Khan
“Only the moon's smile can cure the unseen scars of darkness”

“Full many a flower is born to blush unseen and waste its sweetness on the desert air.”
Paul Hoffman, The Last Four Things

Israelmore Ayivor
“It takes the trust of God for things that exist, to wait on him for the evidence of things that do not exist. Faith and hope make you to thank God for the invisible things by looking at the visible things which were once invisible too.”
Israelmore Ayivor

Terry Tempest Williams
“Myths have a way of bringing what is unconscious to the surface and putting a face on what we cannot see.”
Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice

Doug Dillon
“We co-create our reality with others in unseen ways.”
Doug Dillon

Guy de Maupassant
“How fathomless the mystery of the Unseen is! We cannot plumb its depths with our feeble senses - with eyes which cannot see the infinitely small or the infinitely great, nor anything too close or too distant, such as the beings who live on a star or the creatures which live in a drop of water... with ears that deceive us by converting vibrations of the air into tones that we can hear, for they are sprites which miraculously change movement into sound, a metamorphosis which gives birth to harmonies which turn the silent agitation of nature into song... with our sense of smell, which is poorer than any dog's... with our sense of taste, which is barely capable of detecting the age of a wine!

Ah! If we had other senses which would work other miracles for us, how many more things would we not discover around us!”
Guy de Maupassant, Le Horla et autres contes fantastiques

Bryant McGill
“Uncommon success is found on the spiritual plane; you can't get there through common convention or following others. Hard work is not enough; many work slavishly-hard for little reward. Intelligence is insufficient; how many educated and brilliant people there are who fail utterly and completely. Goodness is not enough; how many meek and good souls are tilled into the earth like manure by demigods to fertilize their golden crops. There is something more — it is the unseen essential, and everyone has access to it.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

Frédéric Bastiat
“Experience teaches effectually, but brutally. It makes us acquainted with all the effects of an action, by causing us to feel them; and we cannot fail to finish by knowing that fire burns, if we have burned ourselves. For this rough teacher, I should like, if possible, to substitute a more gentle one. I mean Foresight. For this purpose I shall examine the consequences of certain economical phenomena, by placing in opposition to each other those which are seen, and those which are not seen.”
Frédéric Bastiat

J. Sheridan Le Fanu
“There is a faculty in man that will acknowledge the unseen. He may scout and scare religion from him; but if he does, superstition perches near.”
J. Sheridan Le Fanu, The Haunted Baronet And Others: Ghost Stories 1861-70

Dean Koontz
“Patterns exist in our seemingly patternless lives, and the most common pattern is the circle.”
Dean Koontz, Deeply Odd

“The earth is an arena of champions. We are all champions. We all did overcome millions of potential human beings’ before making it unto the earth. Our spectators watching our race of life are the Seen and the Unseen. Thought, attitude and choice are what bring the differences in the arena of mother earth. The real champions in this life are they that will run the race of life facing the storms, overcoming the hurdles, unraveling the puzzles of life, questioning the status quo in wit, over ruling environmental mediocrity and daring for great and indelible change out of comfort or discomfort.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Poetry is inspired by the elements of random thoughts, an overflow of gazing at the unseen.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Carolyn Weber
“I found that those friends of mine who welcomed the unseen into the realm of their seen offered immediate understanding. Some are Christians, some are not. Most are artists of some kind or other; artistry can extend to a way of being, of living lovingly in this world. Many seem to have almost a spiritual affinity for the unmarked trail, armed only with True North. ["Leap With Faith" Blogpost By Carolyn Weber — July 27, 2011]”
Carolyn Weber

Anna Kavan
“Standing there, I had the feeling of putting on armour, taking up secret weapons, becoming like a dreamer, invulnerable for the moment—safe in my dream. Now I could face the world, having no part in life; the presence of waiting phantoms could be forgotten. I was outside everything, surrendered unconditionally to my dream, giving no thought to my next move, prepared to obey whatever impulse next reaches me from the unseen.”
Anna Kavan, Eagles' Nest

“(...) Ο Θεός έχει μεταμορφωθεί σ'έναν απομακρυσμένο Γενικό Διευθυντή του Σύμπαντος Α.Ε. Ξέρετε ότι βρίσκεται εκεί, διευθύνει το πρόγραμμα (αν και θα μπορούσε ασφαλώς να εκτελείται και χωρίς αυτόν), ποτέ δεν τον βλέπετε, αλλά αναγνωρίζετε την ηγεσία του ενώ "εκτελείτε το μέρος σας".”
Έριχ Φρομ

Julien Gracq
“...a redoubtable alchemy was at work behind impenetrable veils as the forest prepared it's nocturnal mysteries.”
Julien Gracq

George Eliot
“But we are frightened at much that is not strictly conceivable.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

Patrick Rothfuss
“She didn't know any better. Nobody had ever told her that she couldn't. Because of this, she moved through the city like some faerie creature. She walked roads no one else could see, and it made her music wild and strange and free.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear
