The heavens are full of floating mysteries.
      - Thomas Buchanan Read

It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit.
      - Antoine de Rivarol, Comte de Rivarol

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
      - Carl Sagan

Mystery has great charms for womanhood.
      - Sir Walter Scott

Most men take least notice of what is plain, as if that was of no use; but puzzle their thoughts to be themselves is those vast depths and abysses which no human understanding can fathom.
      - Thomas Sherlock

Whoever believes in a God at all, believes in an infinite mystery; and if the existence of God is such an infinite mystery, we can very well expect and afford to have many of His ways mysterious to us.
      - Ichabod Smith Spencer

Mystery such as is given of God is beyond the power of human penetration, yet not in opposition to it.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

The mysteries of Nature and of humanity are not lessened, but increased, by the discoveries of philosophic skill.
      - Sir Thomas Noon Talfourd (Talford)

I stand in awe of my body, this matter to which I am bound has become so strange to me. I fear not spirits, ghosts, of which I am one,--that my body might,--but I fear bodies, I tremble to meet them. What is this Titan that has possession of me? Talk of mysteries! Think of our life in nature,--daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it,--rocks, trees, wind on our cheek! the solid earth! the actual world! the common sense! Contact! Contact! Who are we?
      - Henry David Thoreau, The Maine Woods,
        Ktaadn

Mystery is the wisdom of blockheads.
      - Horace (Horatio) Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford

The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Can anything be more mysterious than the union of soul and body, unless it be the still greater mystery, which some have professed to believe, that matter can be so organized as to produce the amazing intellectual results which we witness in man? In believing our own existence we believe a mystery as great as any that the Christian religion presents.
      - William Wirt
