Possibilities quotes

I cannot discover that anyone knows enough to say definitely what is and what is not possible.

- Ford, Henry

It is not a dreamlike state, but the somehow insulated state, that a great musician achieves in a great performance. He's aware of where he is and what he's doing, but his mind is on the playing of the instrument with an internal sense of rightness -- it is not merely mechanical, it is not only spiritual; it is something of both, on a different plane and a more remote one.

- Palmer, Arnold

Impossibilities are merely things which we have not yet learned.

- Chesnutt, Charles W.

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle if it is lightly greased.

- Albran, Kehlog

Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we're not. In either case the idea is quite staggering

- Maslow, Abraham H.

Exporting Church employees to Latin America masks a universal and unconscious fear of a new Church. North and South American authorities, differently motivated but equally fearful, become accomplices in maintaining a clerical and irrelevant Church. Sacralizing employees and property, this Church becomes progressively more blind to the possibilities of Sacralizing person and community.

- Illich, Ivan

We can only reason from what is; we can reason on actualities, but not on possibilities.

- Henry Bolingbroke

MONAD, n. The ultimate, indivisible unit of matter. (See _Molecule_.) According to Leibnitz, as nearly as he seems willing to be understood, the monad has body without bulk, and mind without manifestation -- Leibnitz knows him by the innate power of considering. He has founded upon him a theory of the universe, which the creature bears without resentment, for the monad is a gentlmean. Small as he is, the monad contains all the powers and possibilities needful to his evolution into a German philosopher of the first class -- altogether a very capable little fellow. He is not to be confounded with the microbe, or bacillus; by its inability to discern him, a good microscope shows him to be of an entirely distinct species.

- Ambrose Bierce

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do

- Grimes, Martha

We must dare to think "unthinkable" thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about "unthinkable things" because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.

- J. William Fulbright

Oh man! There is no planet sun or star could hold you, if you but knew what you are.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.

- Twain, Mark

If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done.

- Dale Carnegie

If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!

- Kierkegaard, S°ren

We never know how high we are till we are called to rise; and then, if we are true to plan, our stature's touch the skies.

- Dickinson, Emily

There are no such things as incurable s. There are only things for which man has not found a cure.

- Baruch, Bernard M.

Look and you will find it -- what is unsought will go undetected.

- Sophocles

It is impossible to underrate human intelligence -- beginning with one's own.

- Adams, Henry Brooks

The failure wishes he could do things he could never do. He thinks little of what he can do.

- Caine, Mark

Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?

- Prince
