Henri Bergson

Henri Bergson

French idealist philosopher Nobel Prize for Literature in 1927 year
On the other hand, the pleasure caused by laughter, even on the stage, is not an unadulterated enjoyment; it is not a pleasure that is exclusively esthetic or altogether disinterested. It always implies a secret or unconscious intent, if not of each one of us, at all events of society as a whole. In laughter we always find an unavowed intention to humiliate, and consequently to correct our neighbour, if not in his will, at least in his deed.More Henri Bergson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis.More Henri Bergson quotes [10/14/2011 12:10:09]
Wherever anything lives, there is, open somewhere, a register in which time is being inscribed. More Henri Bergson quotes [10/14/2011 12:10:20]
In its entirety, probably, it follows us at every instant; all that we have felt, thought and willed from our earliest infancy is there, leaning over the present which is about to join it, pressing against the portals of consciousness that would fain leave it outside.More Henri Bergson quotes [10/14/2011 12:10:10]
The only cure for vanity is laughter, and the only fault that is laughable is vanity.More Henri Bergson quotes [10/14/2011 12:10:51]
