Meandering in mind-energy . . .

Today is the birthday of Henri-Louis Bergson (October 18, 1859 – January 4, 1941), philosopher. In 1927 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in recognition of his rich and vitalizing ideas and the brillant skill with which they have been presented.

"To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly." - Henri Bergson

"The present contains nothing more than the past, and what is found in the effect was already in the cause." - Henri Bergson

"Some other faculty than the intellect is necessary for the apprehension of reality." - Henri Bergson

"There is no greater joy than that of feeling oneself a creator. The triumph of life is expressed by creation." - Henri Bergson

"The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend." - Henri Bergson

"Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought." - Henri Bergson
