„Man dwells apart, though not alone,
He walks among his peers unread;
The best of thoughts which he hath known
For lack of listeners are not said.“

—  Jean Ingelow, "Afterthought", reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„Man is the supreme Talisman. Lack of a proper education hath, however, deprived him of that which he doth inherently possess.“

—  Bahá'u'lláh founder of the Bahá'í Faith 1817 - 1892
Context: Man is the supreme Talisman. Lack of a proper education hath, however, deprived him of that which he doth inherently possess. Through a word proceeding out of the mouth of God he was called into being; by one word more he was guided to recognize the Source of his education; by yet another word his station and destiny were safeguarded. The Great Being saith: Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom. <!-- CXXII, pp. 259-260

„Atop the tallest of earth's peaks dwell the gods of earth, and suffer not man to tell that he hath looked upon them.“

—  H.P. Lovecraft American author 1890 - 1937
Context: Atop the tallest of earth's peaks dwell the gods of earth, and suffer not man to tell that he hath looked upon them. Lesser peaks they once inhabited; but ever the men from the plains would scale the slopes of rock and snow, driving the gods to higher and higher mountains till now only the last remains. When they left their old peaks they took with them all signs of themselves, save once, it is said, when they left a carven image on the face of the mountain which they called Ngranek. … They are grown stern, and where once they suffered men to displace them, they now forbid men to come; or coming, to depart. It is well for men that they know not of Kadath in the cold waste; else they would seek injudiciously to scale it.
