Famous quotes containing the word source:

    To not know would be a source of pain.
    Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)

    The source of our actions resides in an unconscious propensity to regard ourselves as the center, the cause, and the conclusion of time. Our reflexes and our pride transform into a planet the parcel of flesh and consciousness we are.
    E.M. Cioran (b. 1911)

    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
