Each interpretation reveals an absurd truth - not about the play, but about the person watching it.  (Baffling Quotes) And now I know why they invented words for love, why they had to: It’s the only thing that can come close to describing what I feel in that moment, the baffling mixture of pain and pleasure and fear and joy, all running sharply through me at once.  (Baffling Quotes) It’s that same quality I’ve been talking about. It’s neither contrived, nor surprising and smart, not baffling, not witty, not interesting, not cynical, it can’t be planned and it probably can’t even be described. It’s just good  (Baffling Quotes) And now I know why they invented words for love, why they had to: It’s the only thing that can come close to describing what I feel in that moment, the baffling mixture of pain and pleasure and fear and joy, all running sharply through me at once  (Baffling Quotes) Men are mad most of their lives; few live sane, fewer die so.

It should intrigue without being too baffling or too obvious  (Baffling Quotes) Consciousness poses the most baffling problems in the science of the mind. There is nothing that we know more intimately than conscious experience, but there is nothing that is harder to explain  (Baffling Quotes) If then, your world be such a baffling riddle, it is because you are that baffling riddle.
