Ancient sun worshippers believed 
the sun died at the end of the winter solstice 
and then three days later 
it would be reborn 
at the start of its cycle — 
December 25.

It is possible 
that in the remote regions of the fixed stars,
or perhaps far beyond them,
there may be some body absolutely at rest,
but it is impossible to know 
from the positions of bodies to one another in our regions
whether any one of these do not keep the same position
to that remote body.
It follows that absolute rest cannot be determined
from the position of bodies in our region.

Wisdom is nothing but
a preparation of the soul, 
a capacity, 
a secret art of thinking, feeling and breathing
thoughts of unity 
at every moment of life.

The universe as we know it

We cannot observe external things without some degree of thought; 
nor can we reflect upon our thoughts, 
without being influenced in the course of our reflection 
by the things which we have observed.

The product of the scientific imagination

What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea. 
It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience, 
something that never has been 
and never could have been experienced 
by anyone else.

We live in a wonderful world

There is no end to the adventures that we can have

'Pure experience' is the name I gave 
to the immediate flux of life 
which furnishes the material 
to our later reflection 
with its conceptual categories.

What we observe is not nature itself,

Nature uses only the longest threads

Each day is a little life: 
every waking and rising a little birth, 
every fresh morning a little youth, 
every going to rest and sleep a little death.

Some things in life are bad they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewin' on life's gristle, don't grumble give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten there's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing

And always look on the bright side of life
Come on, always look on the bright side of life

For life is quite absurd and death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin, give the audience a grin
Enjoy it it's your last chance anyhow

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true
You'll see it's all a show keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life
Come on Brian, cheer up

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life
Worse things happen at sea you know

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life

I feel and think much as you do, 
care about many of the things you care about, 
although most people do not care about them.

The gods had condemned Sisyphus 
to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, 
whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. 
They had thought with some reason 
that there is no more dreadful punishment 
than futile and hopeless labour.
