Quote Left The proof of a poet is that his country absorbs him as affectionately as he has absorbed it. Quote Right
Quote Left Never would it occur to a child that a sheep, a pig, a cow or a chicken was good to eat, while, like Milton's Adam, he would eagerly make a meal off fruits, nuts, thyme, mint, peas and broad beans which penetrate further and stimulate not only the appetite but other vague and deep nostalgias. We are closer to the Vegetable Kingdom than we know; is it not for man alone that mint, thyme, sage, and rosemary exhale crush me and eat me! -- for us that opium poppy, coffee-berry, tea-plant and vine perfect themselves? Their aim is to be absorbed by us, even if it can only be achieved by attaching themselves to roast mutton. Quote Right
Quote Left Those who know the Truth are absorbed in Truth. They sing the Lord's Glorious Praises, and speak the Truth. Quote Right
Quote Left It is almost impossible to be a doctor and an honest man, but it is obscenely impossible to be a psychiatrist without at the same time bearing the stamp of the most incontestable madness: that of being unable to resist that old atavistic reflex of the mass of humanity, which makes any man of science who is absorbed by this mass a kind of natural and inborn enemy of all genius. Quote Right
Quote Left I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like child stringing beads in kindergarten--happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another. Quote Right
Quote Left Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. The pleasure they give is steady, unorgastic, reliable, deep and long-lasting. In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed. Quote Right
Quote Left She who serves the True Guru is forever a happy soul-bride. She is absorbed in the true teachings. Quote Right
Quote Left How small a portion of our life it is that we really enjoy! In youth we are looking forward to things that are to come; in old age we are looking backward to things that are gone past; in manhood, although we appear indeed to be more occupied in things that are present, yet even that is too often absorbed in vague determinations to be vastly happy on some future day when we have time. Quote Right
Quote Left One is not idle because one is absorbed. There is both visible and invisible labor. To contemplate is to toil, to think is to do. The crossed arms work, the clasped hands act. The eyes upturned to Heaven are an act of creation. Quote Right
Quote Left For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life. Quote Right
Quote Left It is a cursed evil to any man to become as absorbed in any subject as I am in mine. Quote Right
Quote Left The true lover of learning then must his earliest youth, as far as in him lies, desire all truth. . .He whose desires are drawn toward knowledge in every form will be absorbed in the pleasures of the soul, and will hardly feel bodily pleasures- -I mean, if he be a true philosopher and not a sham one. . .Then how can he who has the magnificence of mind and is the spectator of all times and all existence, think much of human life He cannot. Or can such a one account death fearful No indeed. Quote Right
Quote Left When I consider the small span of my life absorbed in the eternity of all time, or the small part of space which I can touch or see engulfed by the infinite immensity of spaces that I know not and that know me not, I am frightened and astonished to see myself here instead of there... now instead of then. Quote Right
Quote Left One cannot long remain so absorbed in contemplation of emptiness without being increasingly attracted to it. In vain one bestows on it the name of infinity; this does not change its nature. When one feels such pleasure in non-existence, one's inclination can be completely satisfied only by completely ceasing to exist. Quote Right
Quote Left No one imagines that a symphony is supposed to improve in quality as it goes along, or that the whole object of playing it is to reach the finale. The point of music is discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly absorbed in improving them we may forget altogether to live them. Quote Right
Quote Left A generation which has passed through the shop has absorbed standards and ambitions which are not of those of spaciousness, and cannot get away from them. Everything with them is done as though for sale, and they naturally have in view the greatest possible benefit, profit and that end of the stuff that will make the best show. Quote Right
Quote Left Therefore a person fully absorbed in the bodily concept of life is surely killing himself by not making spiritual progress. Such a person is called pasu-ghna. Especially excluded from spiritual life are the animal hunters, who are not interested in hearing and chanting the holy name of the Lord. Such hunters are always unhappy, both in this life and in the next. It is therefore said that a hunter should neither die nor live because for such persons both living and dying are troublesome. Quote Right
Quote Left I have never been able, really, to regret anything in all my life. I have always been far much too absorbed in the present moment or the immediate future to think back. Quote Right
Quote Left Every writer is a narcissist. This does not mean that he is vain it only means that he is hopelessly self-absorbed. Quote Right
Quote Left A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor. Quote Right
Quote Left I knew that suffering did not enoble; it degraded. It made men selfish, petty and suspicious. It absorbed them in small things...it made them less than men; and I wrote ferociously that we learn resignation not by our own suffering, but by the suffering of others. Quote Right
Quote Left You despise books you whose lives are absorbed in the vanities of ambition, the pursuit of pleasure or indolence but remember that all the known world, excepting only savage nations, is governed by books. Quote Right
Quote Left A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is visible labour and there is invisible labour. Quote Right
Quote Left As I absorbed life here and understood it better, I just completely fell in love with England. Quote Right
Quote Left One is not idle because one is absorbed. There is both visible and invisible labor. To contemplate is to toil. To think is to do. Quote Right
Quote Left John 1:5: The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (NIV)

And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. (AMP)

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (KJV)

Quote Left All at once the withering tulips amongst the shades of darkness fed of the sun and the water finally flowed trough them. Recovering with every absorbed drop the vivid mixture of yellows and greens. Blooming and becoming an active part of earth once again. Quote Right
Quote Left An accompanied, busy man's goodness is complimented and is absorbed in the compliment but a solitary man's goodness compliments nature and gets accompanied with all the nature's intangible secrets. Quote Right
