George Santayana

American philosopher and writer
Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual.More George Santayana quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Habit is stronger than reason.More George Santayana quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man is a gregarious animal, and much more so in his mind than in his body. He may like to go alone for a walk, but he hates to stand alone in his opinions.More George Santayana quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The theatre, for all its artifices, depicts life in a sense more truly than history, because the medium has a kindred movement to that of real life, though an artificial setting and form.More George Santayana quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no greater stupidity or meanness than to take uniformity for an ideal, as if it were not a benefit and a joy to a man, being what he is, to know that many are, have been, and will be better than he.More George Santayana quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
