„Believe in miracles
and cures and healing wells.“

—  Seamus Heaney, The Cure at Troy

"Doubletake", from The Cure at Troy (1990)
Poetry Quotes, The Cure at Troy
Context: History says don't hope
On this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime
The longed for tidal wave
Of justice can rise up
And hope and history rhyme.
So hope for a great sea-change
on the far side of revenge.
Believe that a further shore
is reachable from here.
Believe in miracles
and cures and healing wells.

„Call the miracle self-healing:
The utter self-revealing
double-take of feeling.“

—  Seamus Heaney, The Cure at Troy

"Doubletake", from The Cure at Troy (1990)
Poetry Quotes, The Cure at Troy
Context: Call the miracle self-healing:
The utter self-revealing
double-take of feeling.
If there's fire on the mountain
Or lightning and storm
And a god speaks from the sky That means someone is hearing
the outcry and the birth-cry
of new life at its term.

„Money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest.“

—  Aristotle, book Politics

Book I, 1258b.4
Politics
Context: Money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of all modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.

This is the long distance call“

The Boy In The Bubble
Song lyrics, Graceland (1986)
Context: These are the days of miracle and wonder,
This is the long distance call,
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo,
The way we look to us all,
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky,
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry, baby, don't cry, don't cry.

„Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception.“

—  Lahiri Mahasaya Indian yogi and guru 1828 - 1895

Source: Autobiography of a Yogi (1946), Ch. 35 : The Christlike Life of Lahiri Mahasaya
Context: Solve all your problems through meditation. Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception. Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life. Though man's ingenuity for getting himself into trouble appears to be endless, the Infinite Succor is no less resourceful.
