The Three "I's" Of Luminous...

The top quote -and the first "I", INTUITION-
belongs to Leonardo Da Vinci
The second one, in an extended version - the second "I" -
is, of course, Albert Einstein's.

Another Immortal is undeniably MARIA CALLAS...

I will suspend disbelief entirely and buy into the fact that it is an actual quote and not some clever line scripted into the film "Callas Forever", starring the phenomenal Fanny Ardant who is entirely credible in the title role especially when she delivers this line: "a triumph is worse than a failure if the price is too high"

No one more quotable than PADRE CRUZ though -
(of course, MOTHER TERESA is on par with him...!)

«Aqui acabam as palavras, aqui acaba o mundo que conheço; aqui neste tremendo isolamento onde a vida artificial está reduzida ao mínimo só as coisas eternas perduram. O Corvo nao tem peso no mundo; mas nunca senti como aqui a realidade e o peso do Tempo.»
«Here end the words, here ends the world that I know; here, in this sad isolation where the illusionary life is reduced to its barest minimum, only the everlasting things continue to exist. The raven has no weight in this world; but it never felt as here and now the reality and the weight of Time.»

"Um santo é alguém que, apesar dos limites e defeitos, vive plenamente a vida de Deus. com humildade a vive, não precisa de o mostrar aos outros."
«A saint is someone who, despite his limitations and flaws, lives fully and completely a Godly Life with humility; for he does not need to show it to others.» - PADRE CRUZ (1859-1948)
translated by Luciano Pimentel (1969-20__)

And so, with the third, fourth and fifth quotes here,
we get to decipher the third "I" -
which is
One has to be ingenious in order to have one mind's ascend
to such a level so it can finally catch but a glimpse
of the Higher Truths.
