- The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a race of living beings breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again.
- The Bird (1906)
- The isness of things is worth studying; but it is their whyness that makes life worth living.
- On Agression, Konrad Lorenz (1963)
