Quote by Sophocles
Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life.
This quote captures the profound impact that children have on mothers. It suggests that children provide a sense of purpose, joy, and responsibility, grounding a mother to the essence of life itself. Like an anchor stabilizing a ship, children provide stability and a reason for a mother's existence, ensuring she remains connected, motivated, and fulfilled. Their presence brings meaning and direction, guiding a mother through the challenges and joys of life. In essence, this quote highlights the vital role children play in a mother's existence, emphasizing the deep bond and love nurtured between them.
As the beautiful does not exist for the artist and poet alone though these can find in it more poignant depths of meaning than other men so the world of Reality exists for all; and all may participate in it, unite with it, according to their measure and to the strength and purity of their desire.
Science has a simple faith, which transcends utility. Nearly all men of science, all men of learning for that matter, and men of simple ways too, have it in some form and in some degree. It is the faith that it is the privilege of man to learn to understand, and that this is his mission. If we abandon that mission under stress we shall abandon it forever, for stress will not cease. Knowledge for the sake of understanding, not merely to prevail, that is the essence of our being. None can define its limits, or set its ultimate boundaries.
