Did ever woman, since the creation of the world, interrupt a man with such a silly question?
Laurence Sterne
The “Kumulipo” is an old Hawaiian prayer chant that poetically describes the creation of the world. The word literally means “beginning-in-deep-darkness.” Here darkness doesn’t connote gloom and evil. Rather, it’s about the inscrutability of the embryonic state; the obscure chaos that reigns before germination.
Rob Brezsny
Although age has its normal limits, it may be extended by two things-the study of history and by travel. Reading history broadens one’s perception of the creation of the world, while travel extends one’s field of vision.
Mahmud Tarzi
Loud laughter is the mirth of the mob, who are only pleased with silly things; for true Wit or good Sense never excited a laugh since the creation of the world. A man of parts and fashion is therefore often seen to smile, but never heard to laugh.
Lord Chesterfield
It is wonderful that five thousand years have now elapsed since the creation of the world, and still it is undecided whether or not there has ever been an instance of the spirit of any person appearing after death. All argument is against it; but all belief is for it.
James Boswell
Geometry, which before the origin of things was coeternal with the divine mind and is God himself (for what could there be in God which would not be God himself?), supplied God with patterns for the creation of the world, and passed over to Man along with the image of God; and was not in fact taken in through the eyes.
Johannes Kepler
There are innumerable questions to which the inquisitive mind can in this state receive no answer: Why do you and I exist? Why was this world created? Since it was to be created, why was it not created sooner?
Samuel Johnson
How do we know that God has elected us before the creation of the world? By believing in Jesus Christ.
John Calvin
Who then can calculate the path of the molecule? how do we know that the creations of worlds are not determined by the fall of grains of sand?
Victor Hugo
The Bible contains the revelation of the will of God. It contains the history of the creation of the world, and of mankind.
John Quincy Adams
God’s reasons for communicating with man must be subsumed under his reason for communicating to him his account of his creation of the world – and man.
Leo Strauss
Fathers, I do not practice. I’m not religious in life, but when I perform “The Creation of the World” and when my soul is touched by the confrontation of “Good and Evil,” then God enters in me.
Marcel Marceau
The creation of the world is not only a process which moves from God to humanity. God demands newness from humanity; God awaits the works of human freedom.
Nikolai Berdyaev
I have never studied the art of paying compliments to women; but I must say that if all that has been said by orators and poets since the creation of the world in praise of women were applied to the women of America, it would not do them justice for their conduct during this war.
Abraham Lincoln
The creation of the world did not occur at the beginning of time, it occurs every day.
Marcel Proust
The creation of the world did not take place once and for all time, but takes place every day.
Samuel Beckett
The world embarrasses me, and I cannot dream that this watch exists and has no watchmaker.
