„Sooth't were a pleasant life to lead,
With nothing in the world to do
But just to blow a shepherd's reed,
The silent season thro'
And just to drive a flock to feed,—
Sheep—quiet, fond and few!“

—  Samuel Laman Blanchard British author and journalist 1804 - 1845

"Dolce far Niente", Stanza 1, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„If nature leads us to mathematical forms of great simplicity and beauty“

—  Werner Heisenberg German theoretical physicist 1901 - 1976

Conversation with Einstein, as quoted in Bittersweet Destiny: The Stormy Evolution of Human Behavior by Del Thiessen
Kontext: If nature leads us to mathematical forms of great simplicity and beauty—by forms I am referring to coherent systems of hypothesis, axioms, etc.—to forms that no one has previously encountered, we cannot help thinking that they are "true," that they reveal a genuine feature of nature... You must have felt this too: The almost frightening simplicity and wholeness of relationships which nature suddenly spreads out before us and for which none of us was in the least prepared.
