People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.
— Nhat Hanh

A miracle is an exception from lawfulness; hence, there where lawfulness does not exist, also its exception, i.e., a miracle, cannot exist.
— Albert Einstein

Mysteries are not necessarily miracles.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The shamans are forever yacking about their snake oil miracles. I prefer the real McCoy, a pregnant woman.
— Robert A. Heinlein
