philosophy

Ordinary people seem not to realize that those who really apply themselves in the right way to philosophy are directly and of their own accord preparing themselves for dying and death.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a great advantage for a system of philosophy to be substantially true.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The writer has a grudge against society, which he documents with accounts of unsatisfying sex, unrealized ambition, unmitigated loneliness, and a sense of local and global distress. The square, overpopulation, the bourgeois, the bomb and the cocktail party are variously identified as sources of the grudge. There follows a little obscenity here, a dash of philosophy there, considerable whining overall, and a modern satirical novel is born.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Because philosophy arises from awe, a philosopher is bound in his way to be a lover of myths and poetic fables. Poets and philosophers are alike in being big with wonder.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Small amounts of philosophy lead to atheism, but larger amounts bring us back to God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nature in darkness groans and men are bound to sullen contemplation in the night: restless they turn on beds of sorrow; in their inmost brain feeling the crushing wheels, they rise, they write the bitter words of stern philosophy and knead the bread of knowledge with tears and groans.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Germans are the most philosophic people in the world, and the greatest smokers: now I trace their philosophy to their smoking. Smoking has a sedative effect upon the nerves, and enables a man to bear the sorrows of this life (of which every one has his share) not only decently, but dignifiedly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is but one philosophy and its name is fortitude! To bear is to conquer our fate.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Real philosophy seeks rather to solve than to deny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One may summon his philosophy when they are beaten in battle, not till then.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who lack the courage will always find a philosophy to justify it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People who love soft methods and hate iniquity forget this, -- that reform consists in taking a bone from a dog. Philosophy will not do it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A new philosophy generally means in practice the praise of some old vice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rightly defined philosophy is simply the love of wisdom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have learned to live in a world of mistakes and defective products as if they were necessary to life. It is time to adopt a new philosophy in America.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The successful Accelerated Reader is able to read larger than normal blocks or bites of the printed page with each eye stop. He has accepted, without reservation, the philosophy that the most important benefit of reading is the gaining of information, ideas, mental picture and entertainment-not the fretting over words. He has come to the realization that words in and of themselves are for the most part insignificant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do all the work you can; that is the whole philosophy of the good way of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
And new Philosophy calls all in doubt, the element of fire is quite put out; the Sun is lost, and the earth, and no mans wit can well direct him where to look for it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When a bachelor of philosophy from the Antilles refuses to apply for certification as a teacher on the grounds of his color I say that philosophy has never saved anyone. When someone else strives and strains to prove to me that black men are as intelligent as white men I say that intelligence has never saved anyone: and that is true, for, if philosophy and intelligence are invoked to proclaim the equality of men, they have also been employed to justify the extermination of men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Truth in philosophy means that concept and external reality correspond.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no religion in which everyday life is not considered a prison; there is no philosophy or ideology that does not think that we live in alienation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived --forwards. The more one ponders this, the more it comes to mean that life in the temporal existence never becomes quite intelligible, precisely because at no moment can I find complete quiet to take the backward-looking position.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is my hope that as the Negro plunges deeper into the quest for freedom and justice he will plunge even deeper into the philosophy of non-violence. The Negro all over the South must come to the point that he can say to his white brother: We will match your capacity to inflict suffering with our capacity to endure suffering. We will meet your physical force with soul force. We will not hate you, but we will not obey your evil laws. We will soon wear you down by pure capacity to suffer.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My whole working philosophy is that the only stable happiness for mankind is that it shall live married in blessed union to woman-kind --intimacy, physical and psychical between a man and his wife. I wish to add that my state of bliss is by no means perfect.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The value given to the testimony of any feeling must depend on our whole philosophy, not our whole philosophy on a feeling.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If this is philosophy it is at any rate a philosophy that is not in its right mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If an angel were ever to tell us anything of his philosophy I believe many propositions would sound like 2 times 2 equals 13.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no philosophy without the art of ignoring objections.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are tainted by modern philosophy which has taught us that all is good, whereas evil has polluted everything and in a very real sense all is evil, since nothing is in its proper place.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If mass communications blend together harmoniously, and often unnoticeably, art, politics, religion, and philosophy with commercials, they bring these realms of culture to their common denominator -- the commodity form. The music of the soul is also the music of salesmanship. Exchange value, not truth value, counts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The great critic must be a philosopher, for from philosophy he will learn serenity, impartiality, and the transitoriness of human things.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any genuine philosophy leads to action and from action back again to wonder, to the enduring fact of mystery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every philosophy is the philosophy of some stage of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The wise man realistically accepts as part of life and builds a philosophy to meet them and make the most of them. He lives on the principle of nothing attempted, nothing gained and is resolved that if he fails he is going to fail while trying to succeed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose -- somehow we win outMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is really about a spiritual unfolding that is personal and enchanting -- an unfolding that no science or philosophy or religion has yet fully clarified.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines or continue the errors.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No girl who is going to marry need bother to win a college degree; she just naturally becomes a Master of Arts and a Doctor of Philosophy after catering to an ordinary man for a few years.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ultimate triumph of philosophy would be to cast light upon the mysterious ways in which Providence moves to achieve the designs it has for man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The aim of life is some way of living, as flexible and gentle as human nature; so that ambition may stoop to kindness, and philosophy to condor and humor. Neither prosperity nor empire nor heaven can be worth winning at the price of a virulent temper, bloody hands, an anguished spirit, and a vain hatred of the rest of the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In my own time there have been inventions of this sort, transparent windows tubes for diffusing warmth equally through all parts of a building short-hand, which has been carried to such a perfection that a writer can keep pace with the most rapid speaker. But the inventing of such things is drudgery for the lowest slaves; philosophy lies deeper. It is not her office to teach men how to use their hands. The object of her lessons is to form the soul.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In my opinion a mathematician need not preoccupy himself with philosophy -- An opinion, moreover, which has been expressed by many philosophers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Superstition sets the whole world in flames; philosophy quenches them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The proper method of philosophy consists in clearly conceiving the insoluble problems in all their insolubility and then in simply contemplating them, fixedly and tirelessly, year after year, without any hope, patiently waiting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Englishmen are babes in philosophy and so prefer faction-fighting to the labor of its unfamiliar thought.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Jules: Oh man, I will never forgive yo ass for this. This is some fucked-up, repugnant shit.
Vincent: Jules, did you ever hear the philosophy that once a man admits he's wrong, then he's automatically forgiven of that wrongdoing?
Jules: Man, get out of my face with that shit. The motherfucker who said that never had to pick up itty bitty pieces of skull on account of your dumb ass. More [07/14/2005 12:07:00]
Narrator: Marla's philosophy of life is that she might die at any moment. The tragedy, she said, was that she didn't.More [09/07/2005 12:09:00]
Philosophy Professor: The reason why I refuse to take existentialism as just another French fashion or historical curiosity is that I think it has something very important to offer us... I'm afraid were losing the real virtues of living life passionately in the sense of taking responsibility for who you are the ability to make something of yourself and feel good about life. Existentialism is often discussed as if it were a philosophy of despair, but I think the truth is just the opposite. Sartre, once interviewed, said he never felt once minute of despair in his life. One thing that comes out from reading these guys is not a sense of anguish about life so much as a real kind of exuberance, of feeling on top of it, its like your life is yours to create. Ive read the post modernists with some interest, even admiration, but when I read them I always have this awful nagging feeling that something absolutely essential is getting left out. The more you talk about a person as a social construction or as a confluence of forces or as being fragmented of marginalised, what you do is you open up a whole new world of excuses. And when sartre talks about responsibilty, he's not talking about something abstract. He's not taling about the kind of self or souls that theologians would talk about. Hes talking about you and me talking, making descisions, doing things, and taking the consequences. It might be true that there are six million people in this world, and counting, but nevertheless -what you do makes a difference. It makes a difference, first of all, in material terms, to other people, and it sets an example. In short, I think the message here is that we shouuld never write ourselves off or see eachother as a victim of various forces. It's always our descision who we are.More [10/23/2005 12:10:00]
My philosophy has always been, "do what you love and the money will follow."More [12/15/2005 12:12:00]

My philosophy is to take one day at a time. I don't worry about the future. Tomorrow is even out of sight for me.More [04/12/2006 12:04:00]
'UFO's' attitude toward the subject is very similar to mine. It's not an advocacy; its philosophy is more 'I want to believe this, but I want it proved.'More [05/04/2006 12:05:00]
“The most attention I get is in a book store or video shop when I go to the foreign film section. Sometimes that can be fun, but usually those women want to talk about philosophy or something very dense. It's not like they're tearing off my shirt, you know.”More [07/03/2006 12:07:00]
My personal philosophy would be don't whine, don't let opportunities pass you by, be willing to work hard, and remember that you don't know as much as you think you do, ever.More [11/22/2006 12:11:00]
