Creation,Destruction

Rhythm is the basis of life, not steady forward progress. The forces of creation, destruction, and preservation have a whirling, dynamic interaction.

~ Kabbalah

Creation,Destruction

Creative powers can just as easily turn out to be destructive. It rests solely with the moral personality whether they apply themselves to good things or to bad. And if this is lacking, no teacher can supply it or take its place.

~ Carl Gustav Jung

Creation,Destruction

To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.

~ Sir Winston Leonard Spenser Churchill

Creation,Destruction

Rhythm is the basis of life, not steady forward progress. The forces of creation, destruction, and preservation have a whirling, dynamic interac Human nature is potentially aggressive and destructive and potentially orderly and constructive.

~ Margaret Mead

Creation,Destruction

In the end the aggressors always destroy themselves, making way for others who know how to cooperate and get along. Life is much less a competitive struggle for survival than a triumph of cooperation and creativity.

~ Fritjof Capra

Creation,Destruction

The subatomic world is a continual dance of creation and annihilation, of mass changing to energy and energy changing to mass.

~ Gary Zukav

Creation,Destruction

Don't despair too much if you see beautiful things destroyed, if you see them perish. Because the best things are always growing in secret.

~ Ben Okri

Creation,Destruction

He who wishes to exert a useful influence must be careful to insult nothing. Let him not be troubled by what seems absurd, but concentrate his energies to the creation of what is good. He must not demolish, but build. He must raise temples where mankind may come and partake of the purest pleasure.

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Creation,Destruction

Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day. [Uncle Vanya, 1897]

~ Anton Chekhov

Creation,Destruction

That man can destroy life is just as miraculous a feat as that he can create it, for life is the miracle, the inexplicable. In the act of destruction, man sets himself above life; he transcends himself as a creature. Thus, the ultimate choice for a man, inasmuch as he is driven to transcend himself, is to create or to destroy, to love or to hate.

~ Erich Fromm
