Discovery Quotes

We have what we seek. It is there all the time, and if we give it time it will make itself known to us.

Thomas Merton

The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order.

Henry Miller

The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.

Walker Percy

Europe and the U.K. are yesterday's world. Tomorrow is in the United States.

R. W. 'Tiny' Rowland

How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.

Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Jean-Paul Sartre

A human being is only interesting if he's in contact with himself. I learned you have to trust yourself, be what you are, and do what you ought to do the way you should do it. You have got to discover you, what you do, and trust it.

Barbra Streisand

The moment we fully and vitally realise who and what we are,we then begin to build our own World even as God builds his.

Ralph Waldo Trine,

What is there that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man's breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him? Discovery! To know that you are walking where none others have walked; that you are beholding what human eye has not seen before; that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere. To give birth to an idea, to discover a great thought -- an intellectual nugget, right under the dust of a field that many a brain-plough had gone over before. To find a new planet, to invent a new hinge, to find a way to make the lightning carry your messages. To be the first -- that is the idea.

Mark Twain

Sometimes the best way to figure out who you are is to get to that place where you don't have to be anything else.

Unknown

Decisive inventions and discoveries always are initiated by an intellectual or moral stimulus as their actual motivating force, but, usually, the final impetus to human action is given by material impulses ... merchants stood as a driving force behind the heroes of the age of discovery; this first heroic impulse to conquer the world emanated from very mortal forces

Stefan Zweig

After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It's better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.

Sophia Loren
