  • The atheist staring from his attic window is often nearer to God than the believer caught up in his own false image of God.
  • Play is the exultation of the possible.
  • The world is not comprehensible, but it is embraceable: through the embracing of one of its beings.
  • I can look on (a tree) as a picture: stiff column in a shock of light, or splash of green shot with the delicate blue and silver of the background.

    I can perceive it as movement: flowing veins on clinging, pressing pith, suck of the roots, breathing of the leaves, ceaseless commerce with earth and air - and the obscure growth itself.

    I can classify it in a species and study it as a type in its structure and mode of life.

    I can subdue its actual presence and form so sternly that I recognize it only as an expression of law...

    I can dissipate it and perpetuate it in number...

    In all this the tree remains my object, occupies space and time, and has its nature and constitution.

    It can, however, also come about, if I have both will and grace, that in considering the tree I become bound up in relation to it. The tree is no longer It. I have been seized by the power of exclusiveness.

  • Man is no longer able to master the world which he himself brought about: it is becoming stronger than he is, it is winning free of him, it confronts him in an almost elemental independence, and he no longer knows the word which could subdue and render harmless the golem he has created ... Man faced the terrible fact that he was the father of demons whose master he could not become.
