Henri L. Bergson

There is no greater joy than that of feeling oneself a creator. The triumph of life is expressed by creation.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis. We call intuition here the sympathy by which one is transported into the interior of an object in order to coincide with what there is unique and consequently inexpressible in it. Analysis, on the contrary, is the operation which reduces the object to elements already known.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The present contains nothing more than the past, and what is found in the effect was already in the cause.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To perceive means to immobilize... we seize, in the act of perception, something which outruns perception itself.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Spirit borrows from matter the perceptions on which it feeds and restores them to matter in the form of movements which it has stamped with its own freedom.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Think like a man of action, and act like a man of thought.More Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlesslyMore Henri L. Bergson [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
