A culture is made -- or destroyed -- by its articulate voices.
Ayn Rand
A good half of the effort of understanding what the Indian philosophers were after - and their subtleties make most of the great European philosophers look like schoolboys.
T.S. Eliot
A philosopher who is not taking part in discussions is like a boxer who never goes into the ring
Ludwig Wittgenstein
A process which led from the amoebae to man appeared to the philosophers to be obviously a progress - though whether the amoebae would agree with this opinion is not known.
Bertrand Russell
According to the saying of an ancient philosopher, one should eat to live, and not live to eat
Adversity's sweet milk, philosophy
William Shakespeare
Boredom is the root of all evil - the despairing refusal to be oneself.
Do not think of how big the universe is, it will merely hurt your head.
Dubito ergo cogito; cogito ergo sum.
(I doubt, therefore I think; I think therefore I am)
Rene Descartes
Experience has shown, and a true philosophy will always show, that a vast, perhaps the larger portion of the truth arises from the seemingly irrelevant
Edgar Allan Poe
Finding bad reasons for what one believes for other bad reasons - that's philosophy
Aldous Huxley
For an answer which cannot be expressed the question too cannot
be expressed. The riddle does not exist. If a question can be
put at all, then it can also be answered.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Get the hell out of my way!
Ayn Rand
I cannot forgive Descartes. In all his philosophy he would have been quite willing to dispense with God. But he had to make Him give a fillip to set the world in motion; beyond this, he has no further need of God.
Blaise Pascal
I think; therefore I am.
Rene Descartes
I would not think that philosophy and reason themselves will be man's guide in the foreseeable future; however, they will remain the most beautiful sanctuary they have always been for the select few
Albert Einstein
In philosophy, it is not the attainment of the goal that matters, it is the things that are met along the way
Havelock Ellis
It is a curious subject of observation and inquiry, whether hatred and love be not the same thing at the bottom. Each, in its utmost development, supposes a high degree of intimacy and heart-knowledge; each renders one individual dependent for the food of his affections and spiritual life upon another; each leaves the passionate lover, or the no less passionate hater, forlorn and desolate by the withdrawal of his object. Philosophically considered, therefore, the two passions seem essentially the same, except that one happens to be seen in a celestial radiance and the other in a dusky and lurid glow.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
It is easy to build a philosophy - it doesn't have to run
Charles F. Kettering
Knowing who in fact we are results in Good Being, and Good Being results in the most appropriate kind of good doing. But good doing does not of itself result in Good Being. We can be virtuous without knowing who in fact we are. The beings who are merely good are not Good Beings; they are just pillars of society.
Aldous Huxley
