Notes on embracing the unknown from D. H. Lawrence
Uncertainty is part of life. Part of the mystery of existence. Yet for many of us, not knowing can be uncomfortable and we yearn to be certain. I really enjoyed the following quotes from D. H. Lawrence, and thought you might do too. If you like Davids vibe, you might also enjoy this feature about romance, sex and censorship inspired by his novel Lady Chatterlys Lover.
Oh what we want on earthD. H. Lawrence
Is centres here and there of silence and forgetting,
Where we may cease from knowing, and, as far as we know, may cease from being
In the sweet wholeness of oblivion.
And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep, and sink in good oblivion, and in the morning wake like a new-opened flower then I have been dipped again in God, and new-created.D. H. Lawrence
Are you willing to be sponged out, erased, cancelled, made nothing? Are you willing to be made nothing? Dipped into oblivion? If not, you will never really change.D. H. Lawrence
Alone on the perfect silence, the stars are buoys.D. H. Lawrence
Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.D. H. Lawrence
Life is a travelling to the edge of knowledge, then a leap taken.D. H. Lawrence
