Quote Left Art calls for complete mastery of techniques, developed by reflection within the soul Quote Right
Quote Left Remembrance and reflection how allied. What thin partitions divides sense from thought. Quote Right
Quote Left If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It's a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it's time to reflect on what's come before. Quote Right
Quote Left These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. Quote Right
Quote Left Oh, for boyhood's painless play, sleep that wakes in laughing day, health that mocks the doctor's rules, knowledge never learned of schools. Quote Right
Quote Left The ages of seven to eleven is a huge chunk of life, full of dulling and forgetting. It is fabled that we slowly lose the gift of speech with animals, that birds no longer visit our windowsills to converse. As our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armour themselves against wonder. Quote Right
Quote Left Never by reflection, but only by doing is self-knowledge possible to one. Quote Right
Quote Left Narcissus does not fall in love with his reflection because it is beautiful, but because it is his. If it were his beauty that enthralled him, he would be set free in a few years by its fading. Quote Right
Quote Left Knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms. Quote Right
Quote Left What are the best times to reflect on the course of your life? Whenever you are near water, such as the ocean, a quiet pond, or a small stream. Bodies of water, particularly if they are moving, help to stimulate your creative thought process. Similarly, if you are near a fireplace or even a candle, while the flames tend to have a calming effect, they also help you to reflect on what is really important and what you want to be doing more often. The brilliant, quiet stillness of a candle flame can have an anxiety-reducing effect on your entire being. Believe it or not, you can actually choose to feel comfortable about how you spend your time. Philosophically, but also practically speaking, up to this minute in your life, you did indeed have enough time to accomplish everything you accomplished. And that's been quite a lot. When you choose to feel comfortable about how you spend your time, it immediately helps to reduce anxiety. You can also choose to feel good about your accomplishments. To bemoan the fact that you have only accomplished so much by such and such a time or such and such an age is to remain in a perpetual state of discontent. Feel good about what you have accomplished and look forward to what you will accomplish, and you will have a greater sense of control of the time in your life. Quote Right
Quote Left In the colorful reflection we have what is life. Quote Right
Quote Left My role in society, or any artist or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all. Quote Right
Quote Left A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. A solemn consideration when I enter a great city by night, that every one of those dark, clustered houses encloses it Quote Right
Quote Left The Media is an abstraction (because a newspaper is not concrete and only in an abstract sense can be considered an individual), which in association with the passionlessness and reflection of the times creates that abstract phantom, the public, which is the actual leveler. . . . More and more individuals will, because of their indolent bloodlessness, aspire to become nothing, in order to become the public, this abstract whole, which forms in this ridiculous manner: the public comes into existence because all its participants become third parties. This lazy mass, which understands nothing and does nothing, this public gallery seeks some distraction, and soon gives itself over to the idea that everything which someone does, or achieves, has been done to provide the public something to gossip about. . . . The public has a dog for its amusement. That dog is the Media. If there is someone better than the public, someone who distinguishes himself, the public sets the dog on him and all the amusement begins. This biting dog tears up his coat-tails, and takes all sort of vulgar liberties with his leg--until the public bores of it all and calls the dog off. That is how the public levels. Quote Right
Quote Left If the court would not let us out here by next week, we intend to spend Easter with prayers and reflection. Quote Right
Quote Left Irony is the gaiety of reflection and the joy of wisdom. Quote Right
Quote Left No one who has seen a baby sinking back satiated from the breast and falling asleep with flushed cheeks and a blissful smile can escape the reflection that this picture persists as a prototype of the expression of sexual satisfaction in later life. Quote Right
Quote Left And beauty is a form of genius -- is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or spring-time, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it. Quote Right
Quote Left How blessings brighten as they take their flight! Quote Right
Quote Left I know no subject more elevating, more amazing, more ready to the poetical enthusiasm, the philosophical reflection, and the moral sentiment than the works of nature. Where can we meet such variety, such beauty, such magnificence? Quote Right
Quote Left All of this are the image of Knowledge, the image of the Matrix Word of Knowledge in which the Matrix Word of Love is reflected, and not the Matrix Word of Knowledge itself, because it is made definitive by the Absolute Truth and Absolute Truth is precisely non-Knowledge, so the true face of Knowledge is precisely non-Knowledge, which is the Mirror in which Love is reflected and not the image of love in this mirror of Knowledge. The Mirror itself is non-Knowledge thus defined by the Absolute Truth, while the image given by the reflection of the Matrix Word of Love in this Mirror which is the Self of the Matrix Words of Knowledge represents the image of our worlds, of the worlds which have a Destiny, where nothing in Knowledge, but the Image of Love reflected in Knowledge. Thus, when man knows a new universe, he creates his image of love reflected in the mirror of Knowledge, an image of love he references to this mirror of Knowledge that is precisely non-Knowledge. Quote Right
Quote Left It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment. Quote Right

Quote Left 1 Corinthians 13:12: For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. (NIV)

For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God]. (AMP)

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (KJV)

Quote Left "We see our reflection in the mirror but we see our image in our disciples because whatever we teach to our students they do the same if we teach bad things then they will do bad and if we teach good things to them then they will do good for people so if you become a good student then you will be a good teacher because your teach was very good student."

And in the frame of my eyes, and hopes that is what I want to take home Quote Right
Quote Left When you're at that episode of your life, when you have lost the strength and the desire to take another step, when death brushes your heels and friends and family betray you, when the reflection in the mirror frightens you, when you think it's the end of the road; stop, think, you have the power in you to bounce back, you are fortified with inner strength to resist, fight back and win. Take courage, today is not the day to give up on your dream. Quote Right
