We must be born with an intuition of mortality. Before we know the word for it. Before we know that there are words. Out we come, bloodied and squalling, with the knowledge that for all the points of the compass, there's only one direction. And time is its only measure.
To find themselves utterly alone at night where company is desirable and expected makes some people fearful; but a case more trying by far to the nerves is to discover some mysterious companionship when intuition, sensation, memory, analogy, testimony, probability, induction -- every kind of evidence in the logician's list -- have united to persuade consciousness that it is quite in isolation.
Though there was no sound, there was a change. The atmosphere, which had gone tense at my accusation, relaxed. I wondered how I knew this. I had a strange sensation that I was somehow receiving more than my five senses were giving me - almost a feeling that there was another sense, on the fringes, not quite harnessed. Intuition? That was almost the right word. As if any creature needed more than five senses.
Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.
The safe places could only be visited; they could only grant a momentary intuition of sanctuary. The moment always came when we had to return to our real life to face the wounds and grief indigenous to our homr by the river.
Don't try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.
You cannot love without intuition.
There's a disconnect between my mind and my heart, but I feel the truth. They say when people lose their vision, their hearing comes sharper. I've lost part of my memory but maybe my intuition is stronger.
Most people's intuitions are drowned out by folk sayings. We have a moment of real feeling or insight, and then we come up with a folk saying that captures the insight in a kind of wash. The intuition may be real and ripe, fresh with possibilities, but the folk saying is guaranteed to be a cliche, stale and self-contained.
Intuition comes very close to clairvoyance; it appears to be the extrasensory perception of reality.
Intuition is the clear conception of the whole at once.
I somehow sensed when I was a teenager that I wanted to do my own work. I was quite clear that I didn't want to be an interpretative kind of artist. I had an intuition about wanting to create my own form, in one way or another, whatever that would be.
Basically, it comes down to my intuition, ... It wasn't time for me to do this now. There were certain aspects of my life that I needed to take care of first.
Thoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind.
Proverbs, like the sacred books of each nation, are the sanctuary of the intuitions.
If you're still not convinced about the powers of intuition just take a good look back over your own life, says intuition author Sharon A. Klinger. You'll recall that it was only when you went against your true intuitive voice that you found yourself in the wrong place, or with the wrong people, ... The most confusion you will ever experience will usually come from not listening to your intuition. And the most help you will ever have will come because you did.
Faith is a passionate intuition.
Mathematics is often erroneously referred to as the science of common sense. Actually, it may transcend common sense and go beyond either imagination or intuition. It has become a very strange and perhaps frightening subject from the ordinary point of view, but anyone who penetrates into it will find a veritable fairyland, a fairyland which is strange, but makes sense, if not common sense.
I feel there are two people inside me - me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.
Tear down skepticism and dispel your doubt with your intuition, draw the bow of the Praise of the Lord
A man cannot utter two or three sentences without disclosing to intelligent ears precisely where he stands in life and thought, whether in the kingdom of the senses and the understanding, or in that of ideas and imagination, or in the realm of intuitions and duty.
A friend of mine suggested it to me, ... Maybe he had the intuition or foresight to realize what was about to happen. I also noticed immediately that there were a lot of things out of place with the investigation, but I never thought it would lead to a book. It wasn't until later, when I was in teleconferences with guys like Johnnie Cochran and (Barry) Scheck, that I realized how big it had become.
It is generally admitted that with woman the powers of intuition, of rapid perception and perhaps of imitation, are more strongly marked than in man but some, at least, of these faculties are characteristic of the lower races, and therefore of a pas
It's the difference between instinct and intuition,
Intuition is the clear concept of the whole at once.
Our first intuitions are the true ones.
The pleasure of risk is in the control needed to ride it with assurance so that what appears dangerous to the outsider is, to the participant, simply a matter of intelligence, skill, intuition, coordination in a word, experience. Climbing, in particular, is a paradoxically intellectual pastime, but with this difference you have to think with your body. Every move has to be worked out in terms of effort, balance and consequences. It is like playing chess with your body. If I make a mistake, the consequences are immediate, obvious, embarrassing and possibly painful. For a brief period, I am directly responsible for my actions. In that beautiful, silent world of the mountains, it seems to me worth a little risk.
Intuition is linear our imaginations are weak. Even the brightest of us only extrapolate from what we know now for the most part, we're afraid to really stretch.
There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.
Intuition makes much of it; I mean by this the faculty of seeing a connection between things that in appearance are completely different; it does not fail to lead us astray quite often.
