I once experienced nothingness in an empty shotgun shell. (?) :mrgreen:

The greatest mystery is not that we have been flung at random between the profusion of matter and of the stars, but that within this prison we can draw from ourselves images powerful enough to deny our nothingness.
Andre Malraux (1901 - 1976)

Man is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the infinity in which he is engulfed.
Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)

Results from Rand Lindsly's Quotations:
For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.
Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)

God made everything out of nothing, but the nothingness shows through.
Paul Valery (1871 - 1945)

The greatest mystery is not that we have been flung at random between the profusion of matter and of the stars, but that within this prison we can draw from ourselves images powerful enough to deny our nothingness.
Andre Malraux (1901 - 1976)

Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.
Beckett

Nothing can be created from nothing.
Lucretius, in De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things), c. 59 BC


Nothingness is a difficult subject to ponder.

When I ponder on an empty stomach I discover hunger.

When I ponder on an empty bottle I discover thirst.

When I ponder on life without sex I experience desire.

When I ponder on life without friends I find loneliness.
