The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.

I think that the ideal space must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery.
Luis Barragan

There is no conflict between the ideal of religion and the ideal of science, but science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine.
Nikola Tesla

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
Swami Vivekananda

My ideal is to wake up in the morning and run around the meadow naked.
Daryl Hannah

Good ones. We all can strife, but all to often things get sideswiped by reality.

RE: quotes 3 - 22 - 14

Thank you, Don, for all of the thought-provoking quotes that you seek out.

I love an unexpected turn of phrase, Anneliese. I have been sideswiped by reality several times.

RE: quotes 3 - 22 - 14

Good ones again. I don't agree with Tesla, though, if man were a machine, there would be replaceable spare parts, not the manufactured ones we know about, but parts configured just as Nature assembled them.

RE: quotes 3 - 22 - 14

Good quotes, Don.
Lol, at Aristotle, the ideal man, huh?
And about the tesla quote. I suspect that the makers of the new Tesla cars have read about him and his inventions and used some of them in their new cars.
Very interesting quote and again, Don, you opened my eyes to a new concept.

Thanks Don- these are great!
