George Santayana quotes

“If pain could have cured us we should long ago have been saved.”

“.. in love the heart surrenders itself entirely to the one being that has known how to touch it. That being is not selected; it is recognised and obeyed.”

“What establishes superstitions is haste to understand.”

“They say dying animals go into hiding; and I could understand that instinct. There are phases of distress when help is neither possible nor desired.”
