Famous quotes with Reflux

  • La vie n'est jamais statique, et c'est ce que je trouve le plus beau. il est beau, en raison de ses hauts et des bas, des courbures, des ronds-points et des routes droites, et flux et reflux en général. Rien n'est permanent, et seule constante est le changement constant. "Même ce passera" est le mantra et un rappel constant pour nous, toutes les fois que nous nous sentons heureux avec les flux de la vie, et aussi dans les moments les plus sombres quand nous nous sentons bas et avec les reflux de la vie. Les déceptions, les trahisons, les sentiments d'impuissance, étant seul, tous ceux-ci seront reflué, comme la vie continue. c'est incroyable de voir comment la vie peut être si gentil et bon, et en même temps si amer et froid .... et pourtant tout doit passer. alors profitez-en aujourd'hui, et vivre ce moment au maximum, en profitant des flux et reflux de la vie.
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • I aime ce conseil brève et très perspicace, par le Dr. Seuss, à propos de tout ce qui arrive dans la vie: 'Ne pleure pas parce qu'il est fini, le sourire, car il est arrivé.' Les choses changent. Saisons changent. Les modes changent. Les gens changent. Tout passe. Portes familiers proximité et de nouvelles portes ouvertes. Occasion frappe et le cercle de la vie continue. La vie continue. Ainsi la beauté et l'essence de la vie peuvent être résumées, à mon humble avis, en deux mots de la vie continue! oui, ne vous inquiétez pas, soyez heureux, et être en phase avec les flux et reflux de la vie. La vie continue. Faire un bon!

  • [N]ot only must we seek the measure of motions and actions by themselves, but much more in comparison; for this is of excellent use and very general application. Now we find that the flash of a gun is seen sooner than its report is heard... and this is owing it seems to the motion of light being more rapid than that of sound. We find to that visible images are received by the sight faster than they are dismissed; thus the strings of the violin, when struck by the finger, are to appearance doubled and tripled, because the new image is received before the old one is gone; which is also why the reason why rings being spun round look like globes, and a lighted torch, carried hastily at night, seems to have a tail. And it was upon this inequality of motions in point of velocity that Galileo built his theory of flux and reflux of the sea; supposing that the earth revolved faster than the water could follow; and that the water was therefore first gathered in a heap and then fell down, as we see in a basin of water moved quickly. But this he devised upon an assumption which cannot be allowed, viz. that the earth moves; and also without being well informed as to the sexhorary motion of the tide.
    Francis Bacon
