A.S. Byatt, The Virgin in the Garden

“Everything turns in circles and spirals with the cosmic heart until infinity. Everything has a vibration that spirals inward or outward — and everything turns together in the same direction at the same time. This vibration keeps going: it becomes born and expands or closes and destructs — only to repeat the cycle again in opposite current. Like a lotus, it opens or closes, dies and is born again. Such is also the story of the sun and moon, of me and you. Nothing truly dies. All energy simply transforms.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Santiago Ramón y Cajal
“Heroes and scholars represent the opposite extremes... The scholar struggles for the benefit of all humanity, sometimes to reduce physical effort, sometimes to reduce pain, and sometimes to postpone death, or at least render it more bearable. In contrast, the patriot sacrifices a rather substantial part of humanity for the sake of his own prestige. His statue is always erected on a pedestal of ruins and corpses... In contrast, all humanity crowns a scholar, love forms the pedestal of his statues, and his triumphs defy the desecration of time and the judgment of history.”
Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Advice for a Young Investigator

Deena Metzger
“Write against patterns. Go against the devils. Write what you never write. Lie. Validate what you don’t validate. Indulge what you don’t like. Wallow in it. Write the opposite of what you always write, think, speak. Do everything against the grain!”
Deena Metzger

Toba Beta
“Provocation is on the opposite lane of resolution.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

“As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delights of presence best known by the torments of absence.”
Alcibiades

Anne Lamott
“The opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns. Faith also means reaching deeply within, for the sense one was born with, the sense, for example, to go for a walk.”
Anne Lamott, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith

“Sometimes we can't see the relevance of Jesus Christ until we become dissatisfied with the world and realise that there must be more to life than working 9 to 5, buying and accumulating expensive 'things'and being attractive to members of the opposite sex.”
Tim Crawshaw, So, You Want to Be Rich... But Jesus Doesn't.

Israelmore Ayivor
“Every idea, both good and bad will definitely have an opposition. The fact that someone mocks your ideas and dreams does not mean they are bad. Take note!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Katie McGarry
“I bite the inside of my lip to conceal the smile forming. All right, so this is cool. Very cool. I’m well aware that I’m barely seventeen and in a bar because I’m hiding from the police, and the guy across from me is my opposite in more ways than I can calculate, but I can’t help but feel like a princess who has a knight pledging his loyalty.”
Katie McGarry, Crash into You

Shannon L. Alder
“You always had it in you to create miracles, but you forgot that it required you to do the opposite of what you are doing now.”
Shannon L. Alder

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“So, there’s this hornet’s nest. And there’s this long stick. And then there’s me. How I walk away from all of this will depend on whether I realize that some things go together and some things don’t no matter how hard you try.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Nityananda Das
“The worst form of equality is to try to make equal things that are their reciprocal opposite complimentary.”
Nityananda Das, Divine Union

Christina Engela
“Rejecting people for who and what they are will not make you a better, more 'righteous' or more 'moral' person - than the other person, or even in your own right - in fact, if that's why you're doing it, it is far more likely to do the opposite.”
Christina Engela, Blachart: Galaxii Series Book 1

Megan Miranda
“My mother always wanted to live near the water," she said. "She said it's the one thing that brings us all together. That I can have my toe in the ocean off the coast of Maine, and a girl my age can have her toe in the ocean off the coast of Africa, and we would be touching. On opposite sides of the world.”
Megan Miranda, Vengeance

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Do all the good you can while you still have the opportunity.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

Jay Woodman
“Everything has its opposite within it.
Love can be very destructive if you mishandle it.
Pain can help you find ways to grow and change.
Fear can eventually lead you to a path of hope.”
Jay Woodman

Christina Engela
“He’s dying!’ Doctor Cove, one of the ship’s two medical officers told me, looking at his med-scanner as he kneeled at the broken body of the only living Corsair on the black ship. I remember the look on his face as he told me – which seemed more to be puzzlement than actual concern. The man was a Corsair after all, and had injuries I could see, but he was conscious, and none of them looked fatal. But then, I’m no doctor. I never was any good at healing anything – and my job was doing the opposite, and I admit I’m pretty good at it. Always have been.”
Christina Engela, Space Vacation

Akshay Vasu
“Let's Run in the circle, opposite to each other. Until we are thrown into the sky by the storm swirling in between us. I'll hold your hands and I'll hug you, let me be your wings. Let's fall on that clouds and let's dance on the rainbow. Let's bore a hole in that sky until we fall back to the sea with the rain. And Let's swim back to the shore, to play the game of circle again.”
Akshay Vasu

“Promise will be unfulfilled if the labor is in opposite direction”
Sunday Adelaja

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If we are merely a chance product of ‘random happenstance’ and nothing more, doesn’t it strike you as a bit odd that we have the ability to contemplate the question of ‘random happenstance’ with such methodical complexity?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Too much of something can lead to the opposite”
Herbern Lebumfacil
