Anaïs Nin
“Love reduces the complexity of living. It amazes me that when Henry walks towards the cafe table where I wait for him, or opens the gate to our house, the sight of him is sufficient to exult me. No letter from anyone, even in praise of my book, can stir me as much as a note from him.”
Anaïs Nin, Henry and June: From "A Journal of Love"--The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin

Abhijit Naskar
“You know what is the most complicated feature of human nature? It is the term complication itself. We are never satisfied with keeping things simple. We always tend to exaggerate even the simplest phenomenon of this planet.”
Abhijit Naskar, What is Mind?

Sumit Singh

“Overwhelmed by life's complexity? Realize that our alphabet consists of only 26 letters, calculations are based on a set of 10 numbers, all variations in music are based on 7 musical notes, our DNA can be dissected into 4 letters and space on the Planck scale is probably made solely out of binary code”
Martijn Budel

Danielle Teller
“Our fascination with feminine beauty is elemental. It is said that men wish to possess the princess and women wish to be the princess, but I believe that is only part of the truth. We are drawn to extraordinary beauty mindlessly and purposelessly; we flutter on dusty moth wings toward the effulgence with no understanding of why we do it. Perhaps when we see a woman with the aspect of an angel, our souls are tricked into following her, mistaking her for a guide to paradise.

The opposite, of course, is also true.”
Danielle Teller, All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cinderella’s Stepmother

“Our lives are cluttered by complexities and that leads to problems. Genius is the one solves simple problems which seem complicated.”

“If nothing is impossible then why everything is so complex and not simple!”
Priyanka Saluja

“Galimas daiktas, kad mano gyvenimas priklauso nuo vieno iš šių žmonių, kurie čia slenka pro mano akis; galimas daiktas, kad štai prie mano durų yra žmogus, kurio aš laukiu, arba žmogus, kuris manęs laukia. Bet daug žmonių yra prie mano durų. Jeigu ten yra ir tas, apie kurį kalbu, kaip jį pažint?"

Privatinis žmonių gyvenimas, viešas tautų gyvenimas, slaptas nujautimas, literatūra, romanas, istorija, praeities atsiminimai, dabarties reikalai, ateities laukimas - visa sako žmogui, kad jam gali prireikti spėti, o gerai spėti taisyklių nėra.

Štai kur kyla sfinksas.”
Ernest Hello, Žmogus

Siddhartha Mukherjee
“When scientists underestimate complexity, they fall prey to the perils of unintended consequences.”
Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Gene: An Intimate History

N.M. Kelby
“Nothing speaks more accurately to the complexity of life than food. Who has not had, let us say, a béarnaise, the child of hollandaise, and has not come away from the taste of it feeling overwhelmed?
At first, it fills the mouth with the softness of butter and then the richness of egg, and before it becomes too rich or too comfortable, the moment shifts and begins to ground itself in darkness with the root of a shallot and the hint of crushed peppercorn. But then, the taste deepens. The memory of rebirth is made manifest with the sacred chervil, sweet and grassy with a note of licorice, whose spring scent is so like myrrh that it recalls the gift of the Wise Men and the holy birth whenever it is tasted. And then, of course, the "King of Herbs," tarragon with its gentle licorice, reminds us not to forget that miracles are possible. And just when we think we understand what we are experiencing, the taste turns again on the tongue, and finishes with shrill vinegar followed by a reduction of wine so that the acid tempers the sauce but never dominates.”
N.M. Kelby, White Truffles in Winter

Robert Musil
“[Unser Leben] ist unüberwindlich verworren nur dann, wen man an sich denkt; aber in dem Augenblick, wo man nicht an sich denkt, sondern sich fragt, wie man einem anderen helfen könne, ist es sehr einfach.”
Robert Musil, The Man Without Qualities
