#2043 Ambrose Bierce

When lost in a forest go always down hill. When lost in a philosophy or doctrine go upward. .

Ambrose Bierce Quotes about philosophy
#2660 Winston Churchill

Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about philosophy
#3038 Hamlet

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. .

Hamlet Quotes about philosophy
#3670 Woody Allen

Human beings are divided into mind and body. The mind embraces all the nobler aspirations, like poetry and philosophy, but the body has all the fun. .

Woody Allen Quotes about philosophy
#3815 Aristotle

I have gained this by philosophy: that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law. .

Aristotle Quotes about philosophy
#3861 Francis Bacon

The obliteration of the evil hath been practised by two means, some kind of redemption or expiation of that which is past, and an inception or account de novo for the time to come. But this part seemeth sacred and religious, and justly; for all good moral philosophy (as was said) is but a handmaid to religion. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#3866 Francis Bacon

As we divided natural philosophy in general into the inquiry of , and productions of effects: so that part which concerneth the inquiry of causes we do subdivide according to the received and sound division of causes. The one part, which is , inquireth and handleth the material and efficient causes; and the other, which is , handleth the formal and final causes. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#3905 Francis Bacon

In the same manner as we are cautioned by religion to show our faith by our works we may very properly apply the principle to philosophy, and judge of it by its works; accounting that to be futile which is unproductive, and still more so, if instead of grapes and olives it yield but the thistle and thorns of dispute and contention. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#3909 Francis Bacon

Those who have handled sciences have been either men of experiment or men of dogmas. The men of experiment are like the ant, they only collect and use; the reasoners resemble spiders, who make cobwebs out of their own substance. But the bee takes a middle course: it gathers its material from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but transforms and digests it by a power of its own. Not unlike this is the true business of philosophy; for it neither relies solely or chiefly on the powers of the mind, nor does it take the matter which it gathers from natural history and mechanical experiments and lay it up in the memory whole, as it finds it, but lays it up in the understanding altered and digested. Therefore from a closer and purer league between these two faculties, the experimental and the rational (such as has never yet been made), much may be hoped. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#3937 Francis Bacon

A little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#3986 Francis Bacon

A little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion. For while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them, confederate and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#4038 Francis Bacon

Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtile; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about philosophy
#4490 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our age is retrospective. It builds the sepulchres of the fathers. It writes biographies, histories, and criticism. The foregoing generation beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe. Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs? .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about philosophy
#6049 Robert H. Jackson

My philosophy has been and continues to be that [the Court] cannot and should not try to seize the initiative in shaping the policy of the law, either by constitutional interpretation or by statutory construction. While the line to be drawn between interpretation and legislation is difficult, and numerous dissents turn upon it, there is a limit beyond which the Court incurs the just charge of trying to supersede the law-making branches. Every Justice has been accused of legislating and every one has joined in that accusation of others. When the Court has gone too far, it has provoked reactions which have set back the cause it is designed to advance and has sometimes called down upon itself severe rebuke. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about philosophy
#6080 Pierre Trudeau

Liberalism is the philosophy for our time, because it does not try to conserve every tradition of the past, because it does not apply to new problems the old doctrinaire solutions, because it is prepared to experiment and innovate and because it knows that the past is less important than the future. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about philosophy
#6411 Henry David Thoreau

My desire for knowledge is intermittent; but my desire to bathe my head in atmospheres unknown to my feet is perennial and constant. The highest that we can attain to is not Knowledge, but Sympathy with Intelligence. I do not know that this higher knowledge amounts to anything more definite than a novel and grand surprise on a sudden revelation of the insufficiency of all that we called Knowledge before — a discovery that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in our philosophy. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about philosophy
#6443 Henry David Thoreau

In our science and philosophy, even, there is commonly no true and absolute account of things. The spirit of sect and bigotry has planted its hoof amid the stars. You have only to discuss the problem, whether the stars are inhabited or not, in order to discover it. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about philosophy
#7056 Albert Camus

There is always a philosophy for lack of courage. .

Albert Camus Quotes about philosophy
#7078 Albert Camus

Ifandserve as alibis to the masters of Dachau and Karaganda, that does not condemn their entire philosophy. But it does lead to the suspicion that one aspect of their thought, or of their logic, can lead to these appalling conclusions. .

Albert Camus Quotes about philosophy
#7355 Leo Tolstoy

This divergence and perversion of the essential question is most striking in what goes today by the name of philosophy. There would seem to be only one question for philosophy to resolve: What must I do? Despite being combined with an enormous amount of unnecessary confusion, answers to the question have at any rate been given within the philosophical tradition on the Christian nations. For example, in .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about philosophy
#7510 P. J. O'Rourke

At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about philosophy
#7606 Abraham Maslow

The study of crippled, stunted, immature, and unhealthy specimens can yield only a cripple psychology and a cripple philosophy. The study of self-actualizing people must be the basis for a more universal science of psychology .

Abraham Maslow Quotes about philosophy
#8209 H. L. Mencken

I have spoken hitherto of the possibility that democracy may be a self-limiting disease, like measles. It is, perhaps, something more: it is self-devouring. One cannot observe it objectively without being impressed by its curious distrust of itself—its apparently ineradicable tendency to abandon its whole philosophy at the first sign of strain. I need not point to what happens invariably in democratic states when the national safety is menaced. All the great tribunes of democracy, on such occasions, convert themselves, by a process as simple as taking a deep breath, into despots of an almost fabulous ferocity. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about philosophy
#9904 Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol Quotes about philosophy
#10358 Henry Miller

Any genuine philosophy leads to action and from action back again to wonder, to the enduring fact of mystery. .

Henry Miller Quotes about philosophy
#10419 Hannes Alfv©n

We should remember that there was once a discipline called natural philosophy. Unfortunately, this discipline seems not to exist today. It has been renamed science, but science of today is in danger of losing much of the natural philosophy aspect. .

Hannes Alfv©n Quotes about philosophy
#10590 Karl Popper

I think so badly of philosophy that I don't like to talk about it. ... I do not want to say anything bad about my dear colleagues, but the profession of teacher of philosophy is a ridiculous one. We don't need a thousand of trained, and badly trained, philosophers — it is very silly. Actually most of them have nothing to say. .

Karl Popper Quotes about philosophy
#11795 Linus Torvalds

…the Linux philosophy is "laugh in the face of danger". Oops. Wrong one. "Do it yourself". That's it. .

Linus Torvalds Quotes about philosophy
#12166 Galileo Galilei

What has philosophy got to do with measuring anything? It's the mathematicians you have to trust, and they measure the skies like we measure a field. .

Galileo Galilei Quotes about philosophy
#12183 Galileo Galilei

Persisting in their original resolve to destroy me and everything mine by any means they can think of, these men are aware of my views in astronomy and philosophy. They know that as to the arrangement of the parts of the universe, I hold the sun to be situated motionless in the center of the revolution of the celestial orbs while the earth revolves about the sun. They know also that I support this position not only by refuting the arguments ofand , but by producing many counter-arguments; in particular, some which relate to physical effects whose causes can perhaps be assigned in no other way. In addition there are astronomical arguments derived from many things in my new celestial discoveries that plainly confute the Ptolemaic system while admirably agreeing with and confirming the contrary hypothesis. .
