Reason quotes
Reason
If one considers how much reason every person has for anxiety and timid self-concealment, and how three-quarters of his energy and goodwill can be paralyzed and made unfruitful by it, one has to be very grateful to fashion, insofar as it sets that three-quarters free and communicates self-confidence and mutual cheerful agreeableness to those who know they are subject to its law.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something.

- Smith, Frederick
Every existing thing is born without reason, prolongs itself out of weakness, and dies by chance.

- Sartre, Jean-Paul
Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Man, being reasonable, must get drunk; The best of life is but intoxication.

- Lord Byron
Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.

- Jefferson, Thomas
Whenever any affliction assails me, I have the keys of my prison in mine own hand, and no remedy presents it selfe so soone to my heart, as mine own sword. Often meditation of this hath wonne me to a charitable interpretation of their action, who dy so: and provoked me a little to watch and exagitate their reasons, which pronounce so peremptory judgments upon them.

- Donne, John
Reason has never failed men. Only force and repression have made the wrecks in the world.

- White, William Allen
Prejudices are what fools use for reason.

- Voltaire
Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image, but thee who destroys a good book, kills reason itself.

- Milton, John
A reasonable amount o fleas is good for a dog -- keeps him from brooding over being a dog, maybe.

- Westcott, Edward Noyes
If we Americans are to survive it will have to be because we choose and elect and defend to be first of all Americans; to present to the world one homogeneous and unbroken front, whether of white Americans or black ones or purple or blue or green. If we in America have reached that point in our desperate culture when we must murder children, no matter for what reason or what color, we don't deserve to survive, and probably won t.

- Faulkner, William
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

- George Bernard Shaw
One can only give an unbiased opinion about things that do not interest one, which is no doubt the reason an unbiased opinion is always valueless. The man who sees both sides of a question is a man who sees absolutely nothing.

- Wilde, Oscar
Any war that requires the suspension of reason as a necessity for support is a bad war.

- Norman Mailer
A few observation and much reasoning lead to error; many observations and a little reasoning to truth.

- Carrel, Alexis
Science rests on reason and experiment, and can meet an opponent with calmness; but a belief is always sensitive.

- Froude, James A.
For every living creature that succeeds in getting a footing in life there are thousands or millions that perish. There is an enormous random scattering for every seed that comes to life. This does not remind us of intelligent human design. "If a man in order to shoot a hare, were to discharge thousands of guns on a great moor in all possible directions; if in order to get into a locked room, he were to buy ten thousand casual keys, and try them all; if, in order to have a house, he were to build a town, and leave all the other houses to wind and weather - assuredly no one would call such proceedings purposeful and still less would anyone conjecture behind these proceedings a higher wisdom, unrevealed reasons, and superior prudence."

- J.W.N. Sullivan
We are a rebellious nation. Our whole history is treason; our blood was attained before we were born; our creeds were infidelity to the mother church; our constitution treason to our fatherland.

- Parker, Theodore
Politeness is as much concerned in answering letters within a reasonable time, as it is in returning a bow, immediately.

- Chesterfield, Lord
