    "You throw sand against the wind,
    And the wind blows it back again."

    you peaked my curiosity.

    Mock on, Mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau

    Mock on, Mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau;
    Mock on, Mock on, 'tis all in vain.
    You throw the sand against the wind,
    And the wind blows it back again.

    And every sand becomes a Gem
    Reflected in the beams divine;
    Blown back, they blind the mocking Eye,
    But still in Israel's paths they shine.

    The Atoms of Democritus
    And Newton's Particles of light
    Are sands upon the Red sea shore
    Where Israel's tents do shine so bright.

    Great poem and good to remind us that there is more to this world than just science.

    I have more than one.

    "I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love."

    "The naked women's body is a portion of eternity too great for the eye of man."

    "The pride of the peacock is the glory of God. The lust of the goat is the bounty of God. The wrath of the lion is the wisdom of God. The nakedness of woman is the work of God."

    "For all eternity, I forgive you and you forgive me."

    "Eternity is in love with the productions of time."

    "He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star."

    "God forbid that Truth should be confined to Mathematical Demonstration!"

    "Do what you will, this world's a fiction and is made up of contradiction."

    "In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors."

    "I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create."

    "To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower."

    "I am more famed in Heaven for my works than I could well conceive. In my brain are studies & chambers filled with books & pictures of old, which I wrote and painted in ages of Eternity before my mortal life; and whose works are the delight & study of Archangels. Why, then, should I be anxious about the riches or fame of mortality?"

    and every Deadhead's favorite

    “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.”
