“Cosmic Understanding, Questions, Jigsaw Puzzle and a Smile”


“After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life.  Within decades we must close our eyes again.  Isn’t it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it?  This is how I answer when I am asked — as I am surprisingly often — why I bother to get up in the mornings.”    (Richard Dawkins)   



“I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything, and many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we’re here, and what the question might mean.  I might think about it a little bit, but if I can’t figure it out, then I go on to something else.  But I don’t have to know an answer….  I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly.  It doesn’t frighten me.”    (Richard Phillips Feynman)



“My quest for cosmic understanding is a book I have picked up and put down many times, always forgetting to insert a bookmark.”    (Robert Brault)



“There are no extra pieces in the universe.  Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.”    (Deepak Chopra)  



“My friend asked me the essence of life and I smiled.”    (Mike Dolan)

  1. When I meet the smiling eyes, I know for sure we both enjoy and share the same light with the world. When I stop claiming I know something for sure the denominations melt to unity between people and the light shows us the way out of any trap.
