Ultimate Questions Sayings By Jose Ortega Y Gasset: Scientific truth is characterized by its exactness and the rigorous quality of its assumptions. But Scientific truth is characterized by its exactness and the rigorous quality of its assumptions. But experimental science wins these admirable qualities at the cost of maintaining itself on a plane of secondary problems and leaving the decisive and ultimate questions intact. Out of this renunciation it makes its essential virtue, and for this, if for nothing else, it deserves applause. But experimental science is only a meager portion of the mind and the organism. Where it stops, man does not stop. If the physicist stays the hand with which he delineates things at the point where his methods end, the human being who stands behind every physicist prolongs the line and carries it on to the end, just as our eye, seeing a portion of a broken arch, automatically completes the missing airy curve. — Jose Ortega Y Gasset

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Tosca Lee: Merrie Destefano storms the world of urban fantasy with AFTERLIFE, breathing new life into the Merrie Destefano storms the world of urban fantasy with AFTERLIFE, breathing new life into the vast genre of the undead. Gritty, poignant, in the tradition of Bladerunner, with the nostalgia of New Orleans. With crisp and beautiful prose, AFTERLIFE blurs the line between the living and the dead to ask life's ultimate questions-even if they take nine lives to solve. — Tosca Lee

That's why we're here. It's at the heart of what it is to be a human being. It's the ultimate experience because it questions everything about who you are. But it's difficult. — Michael Sheen

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Laura Kipnis: So exiled have even basic questions of freedom become from the political vocabulary that they So exiled have even basic questions of freedom become from the political vocabulary that they sound musty and ridiculous, and vulnerable to the ultimate badge of shame-'That's so 60's!'-the entire decade having been mocked so effectively that social protest seems outlandish and 'so last century,' just another style excess like love beads and Nehru jackets. No, rebellion won't pose a problem for this social order. — Laura Kipnis

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Timothy Beal: The icon of the Bible as God's textbook for the world is as bankrupt as The icon of the Bible as God's textbook for the world is as bankrupt as the idea that it stands for, of religious faith as absolute black-and-white certainty. Just as the cultural icon of the flag often becomes a substitute for patriotism, and just as the cultural icon of the four-wheel-drive truck often becomes a substitute for manly independence and self-confidence, so the cultural icon of the Bible often becomes a substitute for a vital life of faith, which calls not for obedient adherence to clear answers but thoughtful engagement with ultimate questions. The Bible itself invites that kind of engagement. The iconic image of it as a book of answers discourages it. — Timothy Beal

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Shepherd Hoodwin: Today, many of us are trying to understand just what male and female energies are, Today, many of us are trying to understand just what male and female energies are, since we are calling old rigid stereotypes into questions. There is a risk of replacing such stereotypes with even more politically correct rigid stereotypes. The destructive aspect of the masculine has been emphasized in recent years, but both the feminine and the masculine have destructive sides. (The evil witch in fairy tales is an example of the destructive feminine.) Love is the ultimate nature of everything; it is not just the feminine that is loving. We tend to think of female energy as nurturing because it is undirected - it includes everything - but perhaps one could say that the feminine loves and nurtures in a being way, and the masculine does so in a doing way. We are each capable of loving in both ways. — Shepherd Hoodwin

It's more Management is clearly different from leadership. Leadership is primarily a high-powered, right-brain activity. It's more of an art it's based on a philosophy. You have to ask the ultimate questions of life when you're dealing with personal leadership issues. — Stephen Covey

Ultimate Questions Sayings By David Bentley Hart: All reasoning presumes premises or intuitions or ultimate convictions that cannot be proved by any All reasoning presumes premises or intuitions or ultimate convictions that cannot be proved by any foundations or facts more basic than themselves, and hence there are irreducible convictions present wherever one attempts to apply logic to experience. One always operates within boundaries established by one's first principles, and asks only the questions that those principles permit. — David Bentley Hart

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Martin Gardner: If you ask me to tell you anything about the nature of what lies beyond If you ask me to tell you anything about the nature of what lies beyond the phaneron ... my answer is "How should I know?" ... I am not dismayed by ultimate mysteries ... I can no more grasp what is behind such questions as my cat can understand what is behind the clatter I make while I type this paragraph. — Martin Gardner

Ultimate Questions Sayings By C.S. Lewis: An open mind, in questions that are not ultimate, is useful. But an open mind An open mind, in questions that are not ultimate, is useful. But an open mind about the ultimate foundations either of Theoretical or of Practical Reason is idiocy. If a man's mind is open on these things, let his mouth at least be shut. He can say nothing to the purpose. Outside the Tao there is no ground for criticizing either the Tao or anything else. — C.S. Lewis

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Saul Bellow: . . . [T]o live in an inspired condition, to know truth, to be free, . . . [T]o live in an inspired condition, to know truth, to be free, to love another, to consummate existence, to abide with death in clarity of consciousness - without which, racing and conniving to evade death, the spirit holds its breath and hopes to be immortal because it does not live - is no longer a rarefied project. Just as machinery has embodied ideas of good, so the technology of destruction has also acquired a metaphysical character. The practical questions have thus become the ultimate questions as well. Annihilation is no longer a metaphor. Good and Evil are real. The inspired condition is therefore no visionary matter. It is not reserved for gods, kings, poets, priests, shrines, but belongs to mankind and to all of existence. — Saul Bellow

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Dale Rex Coman: The search for some ultimate significance in the universe, and in our little transient role The search for some ultimate significance in the universe, and in our little transient role in it, the compulsion to learn, to know, to find the truth, to answer questions and solve problems - these constitute the essence of an aware existence, the central core of intelligent life. — Dale Rex Coman

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Douglas J. Moo: And, at the risk of generalizing unduly, we might suggest that here as well is And, at the risk of generalizing unduly, we might suggest that here as well is the point of contact for the application of the message of Colossians to a wide variety of historical and contemporary teachings. Any teaching that questions the sufficiency of Christ - not only for "initial" salvation but also for spiritual growth and ultimate salvation from judgment - falls under the massive christological critique of Colossians. — Douglas J. Moo

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Francis A. Schaeffer: The ancients were afraid that if they went to the end of the earth they The ancients were afraid that if they went to the end of the earth they would fall off and be consumed by dragons. But once we understand that Christianity is true to what is there, true to the ultimate environment - the infinite, personal God who is really there - then our minds are freed. We can pursue any question and can be sure that we will not fall off the end of the earth. — Francis A. Schaeffer

Ultimate Questions Sayings By N. T. Wright: I passionately believe, belong tightly together. First, what is the ultimate Christian hope? Second, what I passionately believe, belong tightly together. First, what is the ultimate Christian hope? Second, what hope is there for change, rescue, transformation, new possibilities within the world in the present? And the main answer can be put like this. As long as we see Christian hope in terms of "going to heaven," of a salvation that is essentially away from this world, the two questions are bound to appear as unrelated. — N. T. Wright
Ultimate Questions Sayings By G. B. Caird: All history is an attempt to find pattern and meaning in a section of human All history is an attempt to find pattern and meaning in a section of human experience, and every historian worthy of the name raises questions about man's ultimate destiny and the meaning of all history to which, as history, he can provide no answers. The answers belong to the realm of theology. — G. B. Caird
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Chris Hardwick: If you're going into stand-up, you're hyper-analyzing the world and asking as many questions about If you're going into stand-up, you're hyper-analyzing the world and asking as many questions about a thing as you possibly can so you can figure out the ultimate nature of that thing. — Chris Hardwick
Ultimate Questions Sayings By W.N.P. Barbellion: Youth is an intoxication without wine, someone says. Life is an intoxication. The only sober Youth is an intoxication without wine, someone says. Life is an intoxication. The only sober man is the melancholiac, who, disenchanted, looks at life, sees it as it really is, and cuts his throat. If this be so, I want to be very drunk. The great thing is to live, to clutch at our existence and race away with it in some great and enthralling pursuit. Above all, I must beware of all ultimate questions- they are too maddeningly unanswerable- let me eschew philosophy and burn Omar. — W.N.P. Barbellion
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Stanislaw Lem: A man craves ultimate truths. Every mortal mind, I think, is that way. But what A man craves ultimate truths. Every mortal mind, I think, is that way. But what is ultimate truth? It's the end of the road, where there is no more mystery, no more hope. And no more questions to ask, since all the answers have been given. But there is no such place.
The Universe is a labyrinth made of labyrinths. Each leads to another. And wherever we cannot go ourselves, we reach with mathematics. Out of mathematics we build wagons to carry us into the nonhuman realms of the world. — Stanislaw Lem
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Carlton Cuse: 'Lost' is driving toward an ending, and that ending is: Are these people getting off 'Lost' is driving toward an ending, and that ending is: Are these people getting off this island? What is the nature of this island? What is going to happen to them? What is their ultimate fate? What is their ultimate destiny? Those questions need to get answered. — Carlton Cuse

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Spencer W. Kimball: A dozen times a day we come to a fork in the road and must A dozen times a day we come to a fork in the road and must decide which way we will go. It is important to get our ultimate objectives clearly in mind so that we do not become distracted at each fork in the road by the irrelevant questions: Which is the easier or more pleasant way? Or, Which way are others going? — Spencer W. Kimball
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Lee Smolin: Time is described only in terms of change in the network of relationships that describes Time is described only in terms of change in the network of relationships that describes space. This means that it is absurd in general relativity to speak of a universe in which nothing happens. Time is nothing but a measure of change-it has no other meaning. Neither space nor time has any existence outside the system of evolving relationships that comprises the universe. Physicists refer to this feature of general relativity as background independence. By this we mean that there is no fixed background, or stage, that remains fixed for all time. In contrast, a theory such as Newtonian mechanics or electromagmetism is background dependent because it assumes that there exists a fixed, unchanging background that provides the ultimate answer to all questions about where and when. — Lee Smolin
Ultimate Questions Sayings By T.F. Hodge: In an honest effort to gain understanding, asking questions do not, necessarily, imply a conclusion In an honest effort to gain understanding, asking questions do not, necessarily, imply a conclusion has been determined. They can be used to avoid making the wrong judgement. If building trust is the ultimate goal - there is no need to be defensive, or feel threatened by any inquiry. — T.F. Hodge
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Tony Robbins: What's the ultimate price I'll pay if I don't stop this indulgence now? By asking What's the ultimate price I'll pay if I don't stop this indulgence now? By asking questions like this, they'll associate pain to overeating, and their behavior will change immediately. — Tony Robbins
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Thomas Mann: No, when it came to the ultimate and highest questions, there was no help from No, when it came to the ultimate and highest questions, there was no help from outside - no mediation, no absolution, no soothing consolation. Every man had to untangle the riddle on his own, had to work diligently at it, at hot speed, all by himself; before it was too late, he must either achieve some clear readiness for death, or die in despair. — Thomas Mann
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Ken Wilber: Early morning, the orange sun is slowly rising, shining forth in empty luminous clarity. The Early morning, the orange sun is slowly rising, shining forth in empty luminous clarity. The mind and the sky are one, the sun is rising in the vast space of primordial awareness, and there is just this. Yasutani Roshi once said, speaking of satori, that it was the most precious realization in the world, because all the great philosophers had tried to understand ultimate reality but had failed to do so, yet with satori or awakening all of your deepest questions are finally answered: it's just this. — Ken Wilber
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: To consider judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous To consider judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. — Thomas Jefferson

Ultimate Questions Sayings By Kevin Giles: asserting the ultimate authority of Scripture is the easy part; working out what the Scriptures asserting the ultimate authority of Scripture is the easy part; working out what the Scriptures actually teach on complex theological questions is what is difficult. — Kevin Giles
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Timothy Beal: Like my peers, I believed that the Bible was God's Word written down for me, Like my peers, I believed that the Bible was God's Word written down for me, answering all my questions about who God is and what God wants for my life, from the mundane to the ultimate. Or at least I knew that was what I needed to believe. But that was not what I found when I actually opened the Bible up and looked around inside. — Timothy Beal
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Corey Ann Haydu: Therapists. Always asking the same questions over and over in slightly different ways. They are, Therapists. Always asking the same questions over and over in slightly different ways. They are, like, the Ultimate Thesauruses. — Corey Ann Haydu
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Austin L. Hughes: Of all the fads and foibles in the long history of human credulity, scientism in Of all the fads and foibles in the long history of human credulity, scientism in all its varied guises - from fanciful cosmology to evolutionary epistemology and ethics - seems among the more dangerous, both because it pretends to be something very different from what it really is and because it has been accorded widespread and uncritical adherence. Continued insistence on the universal competence of science will serve only to undermine the credibility of science as a whole. The ultimate outcome will be an increase of radical skepticism that questions the ability of science to address even the questions legitimately within its sphere of competence. One longs for a new Enlightenment to puncture the pretensions of this latest superstition.
[The folly of scientism] — Austin L. Hughes
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Paul A. Cohen: Where the Depression years had aroused a deep sense of concern over how American wealth Where the Depression years had aroused a deep sense of concern over how American wealth was distributed and American society structured, the successive crises of the 1960s and early 1970s, by highlighting the contradiction between the destructive capability of American technology and the moral opaqueness of those Americans who had ultimate control over its use, raised questions about the very course of "modern" historical development. After Vietnam, there could be no more easy assumptions about the goodness of American power, no more easy equating of being "modern" with being "civilized. — Paul A. Cohen
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Malcolm Lowry: Meantime do you see me as still working on the book, still trying to answer Meantime do you see me as still working on the book, still trying to answer such questions as: Is there any ultimate reality, external, conscious and ever-present etc. etc. that can be realised by any such means that may be acceptable to all creeds and religions and suitable to all climes and countries? Or do you find me between Mercy and Understanding, between Chesed and Binah (but still at Chesed) - my equilibrium, and equilibrium is all, precarious - balancing, teetering over the awful unbridgeable void, the all-but unretraceable path of God's lightning back to God? ... Though it is perhaps a good idea under the circumstances to pretend at least to be proceeding with one's great work on "Secret Knowledge," then one can always say when it never comes out that the title explains this deficiency. — Malcolm Lowry
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Helene Wecker: Now that the book is out in the world, I'm amazed all over again at Now that the book is out in the world, I'm amazed all over again at what my friend did for me in prompting me to ditch realism for a more magical approach. In some ways, the Golem and the Jinni are the ultimate immigrants. They aren't just new to New York or America; they're new to people. Like those around them, they wrestle with issues of religion versus doubt and duty versus self-determination - but as inescapable aspects of their own otherworldly natures. For seven years I've lived with their questions, arguments, and adventures, and it's been one of the greatest gifts of my life. — Helene Wecker
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Nathan Bellow: During his interviews, he was unable to find essential answers to his ultimate questions: 1. During his interviews, he was unable to find essential answers to his ultimate questions: 1. What is man? 2. How should man live? — Nathan Bellow
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Tony Leuzzi: Robert Frost didn't like to explain his poems - and for good reason: to explain Robert Frost didn't like to explain his poems - and for good reason: to explain a poem is to suck the air from its lungs. This does not mean, however, that poets shouldn't talk about their poetry, or that one shouldn't ask questions about it. Rather, it suggests that any discussion of poetry should celebrate its ultimate ineffability and in so doing lead one to further inquiry. I think of that wonderful scene from Elie Wiesel's memoir, Night, where Mosche the Beadle of the local synagogue, in dialogue with the young, precocious author, explains: Every question possesses a power that does not lie in the answer. — Tony Leuzzi
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Hans-Georg Gadamer: What man needs is not just the persistent posing of ultimate questions, but the sense What man needs is not just the persistent posing of ultimate questions, but the sense of what is feasible, what is possible, what is correct, here and now. The philosopher, of all people, must, I think, be aware of the tension between what he claims to achieve and the reality in which he finds himself. — Hans-Georg Gadamer
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Bryant H. McGill: The ultimate question of who we are is set before us at all times and The ultimate question of who we are is set before us at all times and answered with every action. — Bryant H. McGill
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Brandon Cox: Never allow the cross to lose it's centrality to the ministry of your church. I Never allow the cross to lose it's centrality to the ministry of your church. I believe we ought to connect ancient truth to contemporary questions, but the ultimate source of hope for every problem we face in our lives is the cross where Jesus died. — Brandon Cox
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Madeleine L'Engle: But I did feel, and passionately, that it wasn't fair of God to give us But I did feel, and passionately, that it wasn't fair of God to give us brains enough to ask the ultimate questions if he didn't intend to teach us the answers. — Madeleine L'Engle
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Robert Lanza: I think it's science and physics are just starting to learn from all these experiments. I think it's science and physics are just starting to learn from all these experiments. These experiments have been carried out hundreds and hundreds of times in all sorts of ways that no physicist really questions the end point. I think that these experiments are very clearly telling us that consciousness is limitless and the ultimate reality. — Robert Lanza
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Madalyn Murray O'Hair: An Atheist is a person who questions every kind of authority, and this is the An Atheist is a person who questions every kind of authority, and this is the thing that is important. Because if we can, without blinking an eye, question the ultimate authority, god - who must be obeyed, then we can question the authority of the state, we can question the authority of a university structure, we can question the authority of our employer, we can question anything. So I think the primary thing that an Atheist is, is a person who looks at an authoritarian idea, or an authority structure, and says to that authority structure: from whence do you derive your authority and why should I be obedient to you? It appears to me that if I have human intelligence that this is enough for me to try to challenge whatever you're doing. — Madalyn Murray O'Hair
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Antonella Gambotto-Burke: Does any man have the right to dispose of his own life? This is the Does any man have the right to dispose of his own life? This is the ultimate question of moral entitlement, and relevant only if right is relevant in this context, and it is not. A suicidal man cannot be concerned - and nor should he be - with questions of moral entitlement. (And how absurd.) His one concern should be whether self-execution will most expediently relieve his suffering. — Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Timothy Beal: Bible debunkers and Bible defenders are kindred spirits. They agree that the Bible is on Bible debunkers and Bible defenders are kindred spirits. They agree that the Bible is on trial. They agree on the terms of the debate, and what's at stake, namely its credibility as God's infallible book. They agree that Christianity stands or falls, triumphs or fails, depending on whether the Bible is found to be inconsistent, to contradict itself. The question for both sides is whether it fails to answer questions, from the most trivial to the ultimate, consistently and reliably. But you can't fail at something you're not trying to do. To ask whether the Bible fails to give consistent answers or be of one voice with itself presumes that it was built to do so. That's a false presumption, rooted no doubt in thinking of it as the book that God wrote. As we have seen, biblical literature is constantly interpreting, interrogating, and disagreeing with itself. Virtually nothing is asserted someplace that is not called into question or undermined elsewhere. — Timothy Beal
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Krista Tippett: The spiritual energy of our time, as I've come to understand it, is not a The spiritual energy of our time, as I've come to understand it, is not a rejection of the rational disciplines by which we've ordered our common life for many decades - law, politics, economics, science. It is, rather, a realization that these disciplines have a limited scope. They can't ask ultimate questions ... they don't begin to tell us how to order our astonishments, what matters in life, what matters in a death, how to love, how we can be of service to each other. These are the kinds of questions religion arose to address and religions traditions are keepers of conversation across generations about them. — Krista Tippett
Ultimate Questions Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps ... Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves. — Thomas Jefferson
