55 Mystery Quotes That Will Leave You With Deep Questions

Mystery

A mystery is a puzzle that is not easy to crack. Some mysteries remain mysteries for years and end up being solved while others never get solved.

Through the years, there have been big and small mysteries that have made people scratch their heads. Things have happened and been seen that were hard to explain or understand.

Things like unresolved crimes, unexplainable disappearances, strange sightings like UFOs, and haunted places are all weirdly mysterious things that have been hard unexplainable.

Some people spend most of their lives trying to piece together all information regarding one mystery or another. They dedicate their lives to trying to figure out how the mystery happened.

Sometimes it pays off. Some mysteries may be well-woven like a complex spider web, but if someone looked into them keenly, they will find the answer.

If someone is curious enough to find what exactly happened and why, they tend to find the answer if they don't get tired of searching. Sometimes the answer is even hiding in plain sight.

Sometimes people never get the accurate reason for a mystery. They may solve a mystery, but still end up with varying conclusions. But as long as the biggest part of the mystery is dissected and it makes sense, the mystery can be termed as solved.

This usually involves cases like those of crime, disappearances, kidnaps, murder, etc.. If someone or people are able to come up with reasonable theories with the information or evidence available, then the mystery could be said to be solved.

Some mysteries remain mysteries to the common public but are common knowledge to their initiates only. This happens with things like secret religions, sects, or members of a particular group. Only the inner circle is allowed to know information.

These mystery quotes will get you thinking.

I don't know how long I will live any more than I know the secret to eternal life. And I don't want to know. Such knowledge seems inconsistent with appreciating life for what it is right now, right here.

We are not supposed to always understand why certain things happen. We don't have to always know the reasons why GOD allows some things to take place. All that he asks from us, is to trust him completely and let him be in control.

Sierra felt full of hope and confidence in God. She knew who she was. And she knew Whose she was. Whatever mysterious plan God had for her life, it would be an interesting one. As Christy had said earlier, God writes a different story for each person. Sierra decided hers might not be a bestseller or even a thriller. It certainly wasn't a romance. But it was turning into a fine mystery. And she could live with that.

Nineteenth-century preacher Henry Ward Beecher's last words were "Now comes the mystery." The poet Dylan Thomas, who liked a good drink at least as much as Alaska, said, "I've had eighteen straight whiskeys. I do believe that's a record," before dying. Alaska's favorite was playwright Eugene O'Neill: "Born in a hotel room, and -- God damn it -- died in a hotel room." Even car-accident victims sometimes have time for last words. Princess Diana said, "Oh God. What's happened?" Movie star James Dean said, "They've got to see us," just before slamming his Porsche into another car. I know so many last words. But I will never know hers.

And as I walked back to give Takumi’s note to the Colonel, I saw that I would never know. I would never know her well enough to know her thoughts in those last minutes, would never know if she left us on purpose. But the not-knowing would not keep me from caring, and I would always love Alaska Young, my crooked neighbor, with all my crooked heart.

So we gave up. I’d finally had enough of chasing after a ghost who did not want to be discovered. We’d failed, maybe, but some mysteries aren’t meant to be solved.
