„We are not to tell nature what she’s gotta be. … She's always got better imagination than we have.“

Sir Douglas Robb Lectures, University of Auckland (1979); lecture 1, "Photons: Corpuscles of Light" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLQ2atfqk2c&t=48m01s

„Well, I think that she's got a lot of Marla [Maples, Trump's second wife], she's a really beautiful baby, and she's got Marla's legs. We don't know whether she's got this part yet [gestures toward own chest], but time will tell…“

„Steadily, unflinchingly, we strive to pierce the inmost heart of Nature, from what she is to reconstruct what she has been, and to prophesy what she yet shall be. Veil after veil we have lifted, and her face grows more beautiful, august, and wonderful with every barrier that is withdrawn.“

—  William Crookes British chemist and physicist 1832 - 1919

Address to the British Association for the Advancement of Science (1898)
Kontext: In old Egyptian days a well known inscription was carved over the portal of the temple of Isis: "I am whatever hath been, is, or ever will be; and my veil no man hath yet lifted." Not thus do modern seekers after truth confront nature — the word that stands for the baffling mysteries of the universe. Steadily, unflinchingly, we strive to pierce the inmost heart of Nature, from what she is to reconstruct what she has been, and to prophesy what she yet shall be. Veil after veil we have lifted, and her face grows more beautiful, august, and wonderful with every barrier that is withdrawn.

„She will not be simple and sweet.
She will not be what people tell her she should be.“

„We separate color and drawing because we have to. But nature doesn't. She doesn't give something a shape, for coloring it only afterwards. Form and color are inherent properties of the object that we have got as thing to paint. If we neglect one of both, we only give half.“

—  Willem Roelofs Dutch painter and entomologist (1822-1897) 1822 - 1897

translation from original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek
(original Dutch: citaat van Willem Roelofs, in het Nederlands:) Wij scheiden kleur en teekening af, omdat wij dat wel moeten. Maar de natuur doet dat niet. Zij geeft niet iets een vorm, om het daarna te kleuren. Vorm en kleur zijn inhaerente eigenschappen van het voorwerp, dat ons te schilderen is gegeven. Verwaarloozen wij een van beide, dan geven wij slechts de helft.
Quote of Roelofs, in Elsevier's geïllustreerd maandschrift..., Oct. / Nov. 1891; as cited in an excerpt in the RKD Archive https://rkd.nl/explore/excerpts/219, The Hague

„And I'm never gonna tell you everything I gotta tell you
But I know I've got to give it a try.“

—  Jim Steinman American musician 1947

Making Love out of Nothing at All (1983)
Kontext: I know just how to fake it
And I know just how to scheme
I know just when to face the truth
And then I know just when to dream.
And I know just where to touch you
And I know just what to prove
I know when to pull you closer
And I know when to let you loose.
And I know the night is fading
And I know the time's gonna fly
And I'm never gonna tell you everything I gotta tell you
But I know I've got to give it a try.
And I know the roads to riches
And I know the ways to fame
I know all the rules and then I know how to break'em
And then I always know the name of the game
But I don't know how to leave you
And I'll never let you fall
And I don't know how you do it
Making love out of nothing at all.
