#1. It occurred to him that his scarcely perceptible attempts to struggle against what was considered good by the most highly placed people, those scarcely noticeable impulses which he had immediately suppressed, might have been the real thing, and all the rest false. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Philosophy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#2. When you are friendly everybody will be eager to be your friend. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#3. Patience is the deep acceptance that things should be exactly as they are. Most times that's easier said than done. - L. R. W. Lee - Author: L.R.W. Lee
Philosophy quotes by L.R.W. Lee

Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#5. Consider the cattle, grazing as they pass you by. They do not know what is meant by yesterday or today, they leap about, eat, rest, digest, leap about again, and so from morn till night and from day to day, fettered to the moment and its pleasure or displeasure, and thus neither melancholy nor bored. [ ... ] A human being may well ask an animal: 'Why do you not speak to me of your happiness but only stand and gaze at me?' The animal would like to answer, and say, 'The reason is I always forget what I was going to say' - but then he forgot this answer too, and stayed silent. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Philosophy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#6. The world is real; philosophy is the illusion. - Author: Marty Rubin
Philosophy quotes by Marty Rubin
#7. ... while transparency is a natural associate of liberalism, it falls short of implying rationalism. It is one aspiration, that social and ethical relations should not essentially rest on ignorance and misunderstanding of what they are, and quite another that all the beliefs and principles involved in them should be explicitly stated. That these are two different things is obvious with personal relations, where to hope that they do not rest on deceit and error is merely decent, but to think that their basis can be made totally explicit is idiocy. - Author: Bernard Williams
Philosophy quotes by Bernard Williams
#8. Life teach you lessons and those lessons are very painful. - Author: Adnan Khan
Philosophy quotes by Adnan Khan
#9. We often participate in a war only to lose our hearts and to gain a few pieces of land. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#10. If it is bread that you seek, you will have bread.
If it is the soul you seek, you will find the soul.
If you understand this secret, you know you are that which you seek. - Author: Rumi
Philosophy quotes by Rumi
#11. It is foolish, generally speaking, for a philosopher to set fire to another philosopher in Smithfield Market because they do not agree in their theory of the universe. That was done very frequently in the last decadence of the Middle Ages, and it failed altogether in its object. But there is one thing that is infinitely more absurd and unpractical than burning a man for his philosophy. This is the habit of saying that his philosophy does not matter, and this is done universally in the twentieth century, in the decadence of the great revolutionary period. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Philosophy quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#12. The urge to make art or contemplate philosophy does not go away when you are sick. Those urges just become transfigured by illness. - Author: John Green
Philosophy quotes by John Green
#13. I don't attach importance to great speeches or philosophy. - Author: Jacques Santer
Philosophy quotes by Jacques Santer
#14. I sail on the ocean of possibilities with the wind of hope and the current of desires moving me to the shore of uncertainty. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#15. The joy of life is in new creations, new adventures, and new feelings. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#16. PICARD: Did you read that book I gave you? (Wesley reacts, barely concealing a grimace as he recalls.)
WESLEY: Some of it.
PICARD: That's reassuring.
WESLEY: I just don't have much time.
PICARD: (re the book in his hand) There is no greater challenge than the study of philosophy. (Wesley glances over at Picard's book)
WESLEY: William James sure won't be on my Starfleet exams.
PICARD: The important things never will be. Anyone can be trained to deal with technology, and the mechanics of piloting a starship.
WESLEY: But Starfleet Academy--
PICARD: It takes more than just that. Open your mind to the past... to history, art, philosophy. And then... (re: the stars) ...this will mean something.
(Wesley considers this, almost embarrassed as he realizes Picard does truly care about him.)
Then: PICARD (continuing) Just consider James' wisdom: "Philosophy... is not a technical matter... it is our sense of what life honestly means... our individual way of feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos."
(then) That's what I want for you.

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION
"Samaritan Snare" #40272-143
Written by Robert L. McCullough - Author: Jean-Luc Picard
Philosophy quotes by Jean-Luc Picard
#17. Just as his sentimentalism is profoundly middle-class and plebeian, but his irrationalism reactionary, so his moral philosophy also contains an inner contradiction: on the one hand, it is saturated with strongly plebeian characteristics, but on the other, it contains the germ of a new aristocratism. The concept of the 'beautiful soul' presupposes the complete dissolution of kalo-kagathia and implies the perfect spiritualization of all human values, but it also implies an application of aesthetic criteria to morality and is bound up with the view that moral values are the gift of nature. It means the recognition of a nobility of soul to which everyone has a right by nature, but in which the place of irrational birthrights is taken by an equally irrational quality of moral genius. The way of Rousseau's 'spiritual beauty' leads, on the one hand, to characters like Dostoevsky's Myshkin, who is a saint in the guise of an epilectic and an idiot, on the other, to the ideal of individual moral perfection which knows no social responsibility and does not aspire to be socially useful. Goethe, the Olympian, who thinks of nothing but his own spiritual perfection, is a disciple of Rousseau just as much as the young freethinker who wrote Werther. - Author: Arnold Hauser
Philosophy quotes by Arnold Hauser
#18. Ergo, while the Argument from Design appears to be a nice, neat answer to account for the presence of a multifarious Universe, the truth is that it backfires on itself, shifting the need for an explanation back and back and back…and back…without end, without resolution. This is called an infinite regress, and its presence in the logic of the argument fails to prove the existence of God; if anything, it reveals that the idea of a designer is patently ridiculous, even more so than a godless Cosmos. The argument therefore answers nothing; it merely moves the mystery of origins to an even higher level, demanding that the Creator have his own Creator. - Author: Michael Vito Tosto
Philosophy quotes by Michael Vito Tosto
#19. You are magnetic, and your magnet is your love. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#20. To me, the capacity to earn money has never been a measurement of success. It is my belief that people must develop a philosophy early in life which permits them to have as much pleasure, enjoyment and satisfaction now as is possible without injuring themselves or others. Money can help to do this, but it is not and must not become the sole aim of a person's existence. We all know what happened to King Midas. - Author: Rudy Vallee
Philosophy quotes by Rudy Vallee
#21. When question arise
Dream or not to dream
Always dream. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha

Philosophy quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#23. Take a deep breath. Now feel the joy of life. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#24. [...] proficiency in inferring the large-scale and small-scale structure of our immediate environment, or any features of parts of the universe distant from our ancestral stomping grounds, was of no relevance to our ancestors' reproductive fitness. Hence, there is no reason to imagine that our habitual intuitions and inferential responses are well designed for science or for metaphysics. - Author: James Ladyman
Philosophy quotes by James Ladyman
#25. We came to the world with love and hope
We are the creation of hope, faith and love. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#26. Chance created the situation; genius made use of it. - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#29. This is an accessible work of philosophy in the best sense, sharply focused on matters of vital human concern and free of the domain tics that mar even allegedly popular works by Anglo-American philosophers. - Author: Mark Lilla
Philosophy quotes by Mark Lilla
#30. Anarchism, the great leaven of thought, is today permeating every phase of human endeavor ... It is the philosophy of the sovereignty of the individual. It is the theory of social harmony. It is the great, surging, living truth that is reconstructing the world, and that will usher in the Dawn. - Author: Emma Goldman
Philosophy quotes by Emma Goldman
#31. Magical morning lights, dreamy sky,
Smiling flowers letting us know summer is opening her eyes - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#32. You had an image of life inside you, a belief or an ideal, that you were ready to do good deeds, to suffer, and to sacrifice – and by degrees you noticed that the world had no need of your good deeds, or sacrifices, and such like; that life was not an heroic tale, with roles for heroes, and such like, but a comfortable bourgeois parlour, where one is perfectly satisfied with eating and drinking, coffee and knitted stockings, tarot readings and music on the radio. And he who wants otherwise and has the heroic and the beautiful inside him, the veneration of great poets or the adoration of saints inside him, he is a fool and a knight errant, a latter day Don Quixote? - Author: Hermann Hesse
Philosophy quotes by Hermann Hesse
#33. Philosophy is the invention of the rich. - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Philosophy quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#37. Today, I'm having a 'Soppy Day'.
It's what I call a day where I'm in love with everything, and everyone. - Author: Anthony T. Hincks
Philosophy quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#38. It's as if they've planned out my life for me and I'm expected to live it for them. I hate it. So I don't tell anyone much. It's easier that way." ~Dani O'Meara from the forthcoming amateur sleuth mystery, Dangerous Days for Dani - Author: Claire A. Murray
Philosophy quotes by Claire A. Murray
#39. I get a feeling of peace from a low so high, as I sit in my chair and watch life go by. - Author: Kid Rock
Philosophy quotes by Kid Rock
#40. My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier. - Author: Anthony Hopkins
Philosophy quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#41. Confidence is good, but confidence with humility is far better. - Author: Debasish Mridha

Your hate is standing in your way of being successful and happy. It's time to let go of your hate , it's now a heavy burden on you that your life can't move on. - Author: De Philosopher DJ Kyos
Philosophy quotes by De Philosopher DJ Kyos
#47. Life is what you portrait it! - Author: Mohammad Hossein Khosh Bayan
Philosophy quotes by Mohammad Hossein Khosh Bayan
#48. Throughout history, independent minds have carried mankind forward. Whether they identified how to make fire or manufacture tools, develop rational philosophy or create man-glorifying art, pioneer scientific knowledge or invent the electric light, independent thinkers have created the goods on which human life and prosperity depend. - Author: Andrew Bernstein
Philosophy quotes by Andrew Bernstein
#49. Freud expressed the opinion - not quite in earnest, though, it seemed to me - that philosophy was the most decent form of sublimation of repressed sexuality, nothing more. In response I put the question, 'What then is science, particularly psychoanalytic psychology?' Whereupon he, visible a bit surprised, answered evasively: 'At least psychology has a social purpose. - Author: Ludwig Binswanger
Philosophy quotes by Ludwig Binswanger
#50. Life is loves shrine
when you're my valentine. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#51. Every one of us, unconsciously, works out a personal philosophy of life, by which we are guided, inspired, and corrected, as time goes on. It is this philosophy by which we measure out our days, and by which we advertise to all about us the man, or woman, that we are... It takes but a brief time to scent the life philosophy of anyone. It is defined in the conversation, in the look of the eye, and in the general mien of the person. It has no hiding place. It's like the perfume of a flower -- unseen, but known almost instantly. It is the possession of the successful, and the happy. And it can be greatly embellished by the absorption of ideas and experiences of the useful of this earth. - Author: George Matthew Adams
Philosophy quotes by George Matthew Adams

Philosophy quotes by Ilyas Kassam
#57. If you look deep enough into anything, sense is always there to be made, wouldn't you agree? - Author: Agostino Scafidi
Philosophy quotes by Agostino Scafidi
#58. The protection guaranteed by the Amendments is much broader in scope. The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. They recognized the significance of man's spiritual nature, of his feelings, and of his intellect. They knew that only a part of the pain, pleasure and satisfactions of life are to be found in material things. They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred, as against the Government, the right to be let alone - the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men. To protect that right, every unjustifiable intrusion by the Government upon the privacy of the individual, whatever the means employed, must be deemed a violation of the Fourth Amendment. And the use, as evidence in a criminal proceeding, of facts ascertained by such intrusion must be deemed a violation of the Fifth.

[Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928) (dissenting)] - Author: Louis D. Brandeis
Philosophy quotes by Louis D. Brandeis
#59. There used to be a canny politician in the Hyde Park area in Chicago in which I at one time lived for several years. His slogan was "I am for harmony if I have to use an axe." As "Secretary of Charm," if and when my merits and ambitions are recognized by my appointment to that office, I will take a page out of old "Doc" Jamieson's book. My motto will be "I will have charm, even if I have to use a club. - Author: Beatrice Fairfax
Philosophy quotes by Beatrice Fairfax
#60. There is always a philosophy behind the misadventures of men, even if they are unaware of it.' And - Author: Lawrence Durrell
Philosophy quotes by Lawrence Durrell
#61. I think, in terms of corporate philosophy, I've always believed that you've got to treat people in a very very egalitarian manner in the sense I like to treat people on a one-to-one basis. And I like people to take on a lot of responsibilities because I think with a sense of responsibility also comes a sense of purpose. - Author: Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
Philosophy quotes by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
#62. If you want to be happy in the future, be happy now. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#63. The problem of restoring integration and co-operation between man's beliefs about the world in which he lives and his beliefs about values and purposes that should direct his conduct is the deepest problem modern life. It is the problem of any philosophy that is not isolated from life. - Author: John Dewey
Philosophy quotes by John Dewey
#64. Chickenshit refers to behavior that makes military life worse than it need be: petty harassment of the weak by the strong; open scrimmage for power and authority and prestige; sadism thinly disguised as necessary discipline; a constant 'paying off of old scores'; and insistence on the letter rather than the spirit of ordinances. - Author: Paul Fussell
Philosophy quotes by Paul Fussell
#65. We are shocked by thieves taking pride in their clever touch, prostitutes in their depravity and murderers in their callousness. But it is shocking only because the atmosphere of the circles they move in is restricted, and - what matters most - we are on the outside. But isn't the same thing happening when rich men take pride in their wealth (which is theft), military commanders in their victories (which are murder) and rulers in their power (which is violence)? We do not see them as people who corrupt the concept of life, or good and evil, in order to justify their own situation, but only because the circles of people who share these corrupt concepts are wider, and we belong to them. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Philosophy quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#66. Calling sex by its name thereafter [the 17th c.] became more difficult and more costly. As if in order to gain mastery of it in reality, it had first been necessary to subjugate it at the level of language, control its free circulation in speech, expunge it from the things that were said, and extinguish the words that rendered it too visibly present. - Author: Michel Foucault
Philosophy quotes by Michel Foucault
#67. Explanations can't explain love--only deep perception can do that. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#68. The world's most beautiful pearls are inside your heart. The universe's most beautiful diamonds are inside your soul. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Philosophy quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#69. In Dante's philosophy, lust is a misplaced love, but a kind of love nonetheless. For this reason, it is the least evil of the seven deadly sins. - Author: Sylvain Reynard
Philosophy quotes by Sylvain Reynard
#70. If we have any role at all, I think it's the role of optimism, not blind or stupid optimism, but the kind which is meaningful, one that is rather close to that notion of the world which is not perfect, but which can be improved. In other words, we don't just sit and hope that things will work out; we have a role to play to make that come about. - Author: Chinua Achebe
Philosophy quotes by Chinua Achebe
#71. Sometimes careful just isn't good enough. - Author: A.B. Shepherd

Philosophy quotes by Lawren Leo
#75. The hearts of the people are good, but it's the hearts of the dictators that are small. - Author: Anthony T. Hincks
Philosophy quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#76. The moon teaches us that darkness can't hide the beauty of life if we know how to reflect beauty. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#77. Humanism or atheism is a wonderful philosophy of life as long as you are big, strong, and between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five. But watch out if you are in a lifeboat and there are others who are younger, bigger, or smarter. - Author: William Murray, 1st Earl Of Mansfield
Philosophy quotes by William Murray, 1st Earl Of Mansfield
#78. Ordinary philosophy is like a hound hunting his own tail. The more he hunts the farther he has to go, and his nose never catches up with his heels, because it is forever ahead of them. So the present is already a foregone conclusion, and I am ever too late to understand it...The truth is that we travel on a journey that was accomplished before we set out; and the real end of philosophy is accomplished, not when we arrive at, but when we remain in, our destination (being already there) - which may occur vicariously in this life when we cease our intellectual questioning - Author: Benjamin Paul Blood
Philosophy quotes by Benjamin Paul Blood
#79. A wise person is silent and rarely wants to show his wisdom. A fool is always vocal and uses every opportunity to show his foolishness. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#80. The best ship, the best culture, the best knowledge, is the one which allows us to go farther, explore more territories or oceans of reality, and have the least damaging leaks possible. - Author: Jesus Zamora Bonilla
Philosophy quotes by Jesus Zamora Bonilla
#81. Office. "Freaking glorious." I hefted my bag higher on my shoulder and I headed out. Tank was standing guard on the sidewalk, in front of my car. "I have a couple FTAs," I said to Tank. "One's in the Burg and one's in Hamilton Township. I have to stop at my apartment first to get some clean clothes and stuff." "It might be easier if we took one car for the busts," Tank said. I agreed. "Do you want to drive or ride shotgun?" Tank's eyebrows raised a fraction of an inch. Shocked that I would even consider driving. Tank only rode shotgun to Ranger. "It's the twenty-first century," I told Tank. "Women drive." "Only in my bed," Tank said. "Never in my car." I didn't have a reply to that, but I thought it sounded like an okay philosophy. So I beeped the Escape locked, got into Tank's SUV, and we chugged off for my place. - Author: Janet Evanovich
Philosophy quotes by Janet Evanovich
#82. We are always searching for a cave to fit in. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#83. Your life purpose is not just one thing, nor just what you love to do, nor a role, nor a legacy you leave. Your life purpose is who you are 24/7. - Author: Diana Dentinger
Philosophy quotes by Diana Dentinger
#84. Smile without reason, because you are the reason. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#85. Our lives are part of a unique adventure ... Nevertheless, most of us think the world is 'normal' and are constantly hunting for something abnormal
like angels or Martians. But that is just because we don't realize the world is a mystery. As for myself, I felt completely different. I saw the world as an amazing dream. I was hunting for some kind of explanation of how everything fit together. - Author: Jostein Gaarder
Philosophy quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#86. Every answer can be followed by another question. - Author: Thomas Lloyd Qualls
Philosophy quotes by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
#87. I have a new philosophy. I only dread one day at a time. - Charlie Brown - Author: Edward T. Welch
Philosophy quotes by Edward T. Welch
#88. Fore more than a decade - from the mid-1950s until the late 1960s - conservatives systematically and strategically linked opposition to civil rights legislation to calls for law and order, arguing that Martin Luther King Jr.'s philosophy of civil disobedience was a leading cause of crime. Civil rights protests were frequently depicted as criminal rather than political in nature, and federal courts were accused of excessive 'lenience' toward lawlessness, thereby contributing to the spread of crime. - Author: Michelle Alexander
Philosophy quotes by Michelle Alexander
#89. This, for Homer, is the tragedy of being human: to desire freedom, and be tortured by a sense of autonomy, and yet be imprisoned by forces beyond our control. - Author: Kenan Malik
Philosophy quotes by Kenan Malik
#90. All that Lenin learned about business from the tales of his comrades who occasionally sat in business offices was that it required a lot of scribbling, recording, and ciphering. Thus, he declares that accounting and control are the chief things necessary for the organizing and correct functioning of society ... Here we have the philosophy of the filing clerk in its full glory. - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Philosophy quotes by Ludwig Von Mises

Philosophy quotes by Elif Shafak
#94. Some philosophers are drawn to the subject [of philosophy] via their interest in the nature and structure of the world external to us. Others are drawn to it by an interest in the capacities that make humans distinctive in the world. I am a philosopher of the latter sort. My work thus far has been clustered around the nexus of knowledge, communication, and human action. - Author: Jason Stanley
Philosophy quotes by Jason Stanley
#95. Laugh with fake id's but i have permanent license of pain in eyes - Author: Kjiva
Philosophy quotes by Kjiva
#96. If you've a notion of what man's heart is, wouldn't you say that maybe the whole effort of man on earth to build a civilization is simply man's frantic and frightened attempt to hide himself from himself? That there is a part of man that man wants to reject? That man wants to keep from knowing what he is? That he wants to protect himself from seeing that he is something awful? And that this 'awful' part of himself might not be as awful as he thinks, but he finds it too strange and he does not know what to do with it? We talk about what to do with the atom bomb ... But man's heart, his spirit is the deadliest thing in creation. Are not all cultures and civilizations just screens which men have used to divide themselves, to put between that part of themselves which they are afraid of and that part of themselves which they wish, in their deep timidity, to try to preserve? Are not all of man's efforts at order an attempt to still man's fear of himself? - Author: Richard Wright
Philosophy quotes by Richard Wright

It's up to us what we do with it. - Author: Anthony T. Hincks
Philosophy quotes by Anthony T. Hincks

#103. In the 1980s ... it was a liberal philosophy of government that changed the rules to suit its own political ends. We were forfeiting our freedoms to conform to a humanistic philosophy that was patently antireligious. - Author: James G. Watt

Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#110. XIV. Of all men they alone are at leisure who take time for philosophy, they alone really live; for they are not content to be good guardians of their own lifetime only. They annex ever age to their own; all the years that have gone ore them are an addition to their store. Unless we are most ungrateful, all those men, glorious fashioners of holy thoughts, were born for us; for us they have prepared a way of life. By other men's labours we are led to the sight of things most beautiful that have been wrested from darkness and brought into light; from no age are we shut out, we have access to all ages, and if it is our wish, by greatness of mind, to pass beyond the narrow limits of human weakness, there is a great stretch of time through which we may roam. We may argue with Socrates, we may doubt32 with Carneades, find peace with Epicurus, overcome human nature with the Stoics, exceed it with the Cynics. Since Nature allows us to enter into fellowship with every age, why should we not turn from this paltry and fleeting span of time and surrender ourselves with all our soul to the past, which is boundless, which is eternal, which we share with our betters? - Author: Giordano Bruno
Philosophy quotes by Giordano Bruno

#113. The philosophy of hedonism means little to lovers of pleasure. They have no inclination to read philosophy, or to write it. - Author: Mason Cooley
Philosophy quotes by Mason Cooley
#114. Voltaire rejects all systems, and suspects that "every chief of a sect in philosophy has been a little of a quack."

"The further I go, the more I am confirmed in the idea that systems of metaphysics are for philosophers what novels are for women."

"It is only charlatans who are certain. We know nothing of first principles. It is truly extravagant to define God, angels, and minds, and to know precisely why God formed the world, when we do not know why we move our arms at will."

"Doubt is not a very agreeable state, but certainty is a ridiculous one. - Author: Will Durant
Philosophy quotes by Will Durant
#115. The moon is a poem in a starry night. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#116. Except for our pompous means of comfort, human condition is not much different from animal condition - we are tormented each day with animal like anxieties, insecurities and fears, and each torment makes us believe that perhaps having more comfort will change our condition, but it never does, rather, it only shoves us deeper into the abyss of psychological darkness. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Philosophy quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#117. Space is infinite. To the mind that means freedom, liberation.' So wrote Arisko, our greatest turkle philosopher, in his most famous work, 'Thoughts In A Bathtub'," said Dottia, dreamily, in an inspired state. - Author: Philip Dodd

#118. Philosophy goes no further than probabilities, and in every assertion keeps a doubt in reserve. - Author: James Anthony Froude
Philosophy quotes by James Anthony Froude
#119. Philosophy has become the shadow of itself over the years. Nine parts history and one part reflection on history. It has been ages since anything original came forth in the field. All the good thinking has already been done. Nowadays, philosophers are mostly institutionalized academics - like me - focused more on the politics of tenure than on philosophizing. - Author: Gudjon Bergmann
Philosophy quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#120. One should not study what is best, but also what is possible, and similarly what is easier and more attainable by all. - Author: Aristotle.

Philosophy quotes by Andrea L'Artiste
#122. We have really, that I know of, no philosophical basis for high and low. Moreover, the vegetable kingdom does not culminate, as the animal kingdom does. It is not a kingdom, but a common-wealth; a democracy, and therefore puzzling and unaccountable from the former point of view. - Author: Asa Gray
Philosophy quotes by Asa Gray
#123. Oh, don't pull your hand away from me, I've promised myself that maybe by the end of this impossible narrative I shall understand, oh maybe it will be on Hell's road that I shall be able to find what we need - but don't pull your hand away, even though I now know that the finding has to come on the road of what we are, if I can succeed in not sinking completely into what we are. - Author: Clarice Lispector

Philosophy quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#126. My darling Prometheus, you failed at being human. It's such a simple thing to be human. You didn't understand that you never had to be any good at it. You simply had to try. The modern Prometheus. I feel your inadequacy under my skin. Crawling like worms. You possessed that love and rage indeed. Entertain away, dear Monster. Frankenstein forced you into humanity. Tried to make you a man. That was his first mistake. You should have aimed for the Gods. - Author: F.K. Preston
Philosophy quotes by F.K. Preston

#133. But every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Philosophy quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#134. We grow up in a world where satisfying our cravings seems to be the number one objective, every advertisement on television and the newspaper calls for one craving or another to be dealt with. When it comes to sex we are bombarded every which way, so much so, that we think solving our cravings is the only way and the right way. - Author: Evan Sutter
Philosophy quotes by Evan Sutter
#135. Don't leave me", "Don't go away", "Don't forget me"... it seems to me, a tragedy, that these words so divine are the words that everyone is trained to never say. We are trained to never say and to never listen, to these words. These are the sentiments we were born into this world with as infants, the purest form of soul, the same sentiments we are trained to murder in ourselves and in others. We wage a war against what it means to be alive and then we wonder why we're killing ourselves. If I say these things to someone, and they still leave me, I have not lost anything because I have truly lived. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Philosophy quotes by C. JoyBell C.

Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#140. We can't worry about meaning. Ari proposed to us that meaning is a consumer item. Some people manufacture it through religion, philosophy, nationhood, politics, and some people buy it. But an artist is not a manufacturer. - Author: David Cronenberg
Philosophy quotes by David Cronenberg
#141. I don't have the faith now. I certainly believe in Jesus - you know, that he existed and he was a very nice man. And who can disagree with a simple philosophy of treat other people like you'd like to be treated yourself? It's absolutely - nothing I can disagree with that. - Author: Nick Lowe
Philosophy quotes by Nick Lowe
#142. We need many more intrepid women who set out to expand both their and our concepts of the world. We need them in writing just as we need them in politics. We need that sense of adventure, of reaching wider, delving deeper, pushing further afield, whether that field be geographical, intellectual, political, personal, or all of these and more. Enough with decorousness. Let us risk preconceptions and treasured philosophies, bodies and souls. Let us be big and bawdy and full of courage. Let's go. - Author: Lesley Hazleton
Philosophy quotes by Lesley Hazleton

Philosophy quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#146. To explain the Use of Education, no Method can be more effectual, than to shew what dull Mistakes and silly Notions Men are apt to be led into for Want of it. These Mistakes are so numerous, that if we were to undertake to divulge all the Errors that Men of no Knowledge in the Sciences labour under, the shortest Way would be to publish a compleat System of Natural Philosophy, which Learning, as it may be acquired by reading the different Books, which have already been wrote upon that Subject, in this Aera of the Sciences, such an Undertaking would be quite needless at this Time, even supposing the Author capable of that laborious Work. If the following Sheets do but serve to divest Men of some of those unreasonable Obstinacies with which they and their Forefathers have long been prepossessed, the Time will be well laid out, both of the Writer and Reader. - Author: Stephen Fovargue

Philosophy quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#160. The rivers of mythology and philosophy run parallel and do not mingle till they meet in the sea of Christendom. Simple secularists still talk as if the Church had introduced a sort of schism between reason and religion. The truth is that the Church was actually the first thing that ever tried to combine reason and religion. There had never before been any such union of the priests and the philosophers. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Philosophy quotes by G.K. Chesterton

#163. If we are to know ourselves, philosophy needs to maintain an ongoing dialogue with the sciences of mind. - Author: George Lakoff
Philosophy quotes by George Lakoff
#164. [Skinner] does not invoke other events, processes, or mechanisms which are hypothesized or invented for the purpose of mediating between behavior and its empirical determinants. This omission is sometimes misconstrued as a denial that mediating mechanisms exist; they obviously do, they are obviously neurological and they are also obviously themselves lawful. ...The argument [against employing them as part of scientific practice] is simplicity itself... [Skinner] considers such theoretical terms unnecessary; they may generate research whose only usefulness is to disconfirm the mediating entity or redefine it without increasing our knowledge of behavior's controlling variables; they can become the absorbing focus of an inquiry and so deflect attention from behavior itself; they can become a "refuge from the data". - Author: Kenneth MacCorquodale
Philosophy quotes by Kenneth MacCorquodale
#165. Wake up. Watch the beauty of the dawn and the rising sun. Appreciate the beauty and your ability to appreciate it. Without your appreciation, there is no beauty. The sun created you to see her own beauty through your eyes. Find and appreciate all of the beauty around you. Life is for appreciation, love, and happiness. We express our love through appreciation and through love our souls feel the secret touch of happiness. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#166. Well, on some level, it's similar to the psychological phenomenon of helplessness, where the will to try is lost. You get to the point where you just assume that your spontaneous call to a friend will go to voicemail or an assistant, and you decide not to bother. - Author: Zack Love
Philosophy quotes by Zack Love

#171. I find it impossible to subscribe to a philosophy that believes that the destruction of human life is a legitimate solution to a problem that is mostly social, economic and psychological, ...

#173. The man who says that all events are necessitated has no ground for critizing the man who says that not all events are necessitated. For according to him this is itself a necessitated event. - Author: Epicurus
Philosophy quotes by Epicurus
#174. This book first arose out of a passage in [Jorge Luis] Borges, out of the laughter that shattered, as I read the passage, all the familiar landmarks of my thought - our thought that bears the stamp of our age and our geography - breaking up all the ordered surfaces and all the planes with which we are accustomed to tame the wild profusion of existing things, and continuing long afterwards to disturb and threaten with collapse our age-old distinction between the Same and the Other. This passage quotes a 'certain Chinese encyclopaedia' in which it is written that 'animals are divided into: (a) belonging to the Emperor, (b) embalmed, (c) tame, (d) suckling pigs, (e) sirens, (f) fabulous, (g) stray dogs, (h) included in the present classification, (i) frenzied, (j) innumerable, (k) drawn with a very fine camelhair brush, (l) et cetera, (m) having just broken the water pitcher, (n) that from a long way off look like flies'. In the wonderment of this taxonomy, the thing we apprehend in one great leap, the thing that, by means of the fable, is demonstrated as the exotic charm of another system of thought, is the limitation of our own, the stark impossibility of thinking that. - Author: Michel Foucault
Philosophy quotes by Michel Foucault
#175. No plan ever failed due to good planning. - Author: Jury Nel

Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#180. She understood that for her to excel at Oxford she had to improve her English. Her brain was in need of words to express itself fully, the way a sapling was in need of raindrops to grow to its potential. She purchased stacks of coloured Post-it notes. On them she wrote the words she chanced upon, fell in love with and intended to use at the earliest opportunity -- just as every foreigner did, one way or another:
- Autotomy: The casting off of a body part by an animal in danger
- Cleft Stick (from Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings): To be in a difficult situation
- Rantipole (from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow): Wild, reckless, sometimes quarrelsome person.
In her first Political Philosophy essay, she wrote 'In Turkey, where daily politics is rantipole, each time the system is in a cleft stick, democracy is the first thing to be severed and sacrificed in an act of autotomy. - Author: Elif Shafak

#184. My philosophy in life ... is to prove myself to myself and not to others. I tried to teach my children that, that I have to respect myself, to prove to myself that I can do the best I can. - Author: Columba Bush
Philosophy quotes by Columba Bush
#185. Love is blind, they say; sex is impervious to reason and mocks the power of all philosophers. But, in fact, a man's sexual choice is the result and the sum of his fundamental convictions. Tell me what a man finds sexually attractive and I will tell you his entire philosophy on life. Show me the woman he sleeps with and I will tell you his valuation of himself. No matter what corruption he's taught about the virtue of selflessness, sex is the most profoundly selfish of all acts, an act which he cannot perform for any motive but his own enjoyment–just try to think of performing it in a spirit of selfless charity!–an act which is not possible in self-abasement, only in self-exaltation, only in confidence of being desired and being worthy of desire. - Author: Ayn Rand
Philosophy quotes by Ayn Rand

Philosophy quotes by Karan Bajaj
#196. If you want a safe compass to guide you through life, and to banish all doubt as to the right way of looking at it, you cannot do better than accustom yourself to regard this world as a penitentiary... •If you accustom yourself to this view of life you will regulate your expectations accordingly, and cease to look upon all its disagreeable incidents, great and small, its sufferings, its worries, its misery, as anything unusual or irregular; nay, you will find that everything is as it should be, in a world where each of us pays the penalty of existence in his own peculiar way. - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Philosophy quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#197. Shall I be able to understand the sense of what you have written?

No, King, what a poet writes is not meant to have any sense.

What then?

To have the tune itself.

What do you mean? Is there no philosophy in it?

No, none at all, thank goodness.

What does it say, then?

King, it says "I exist." Don't you know the meaning of the first cry of the new-born child? The child, when it is born, hears at once the cries of the earth and water and sky, which surround him,--and they all cry to him, "We exist," and his tiny little heart responds, and cries out in its turn, "I exist." My poetry is like the cry of that new-born child. It is a response to the cry of the Universe. - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Philosophy quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
