quotes
To my taste the most fruitful and most natural exercise of our minds is conversation. I find the practice of it the most delightful activity in our lives.

- Michel Eyquem deMontaigne
Man can learn nothing unless he proceeds from the known to the unknown.

- Claude Bernard
All thought must, directly or indirectly, by way of certain characters, relate ultimately to intuitions, and therefore, with us, to sensibility, because in no other way can an object be given to us.

- Kant, Immanuel
For a truly religious man nothing is tragic.

- Wittgenstein, Ludwig
It is a sure sign that a culture has reached a dead end when it is no longer intrigued by its myths.

- Marcus, Greil
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

- O'Keeffe, Georgia
Of men who have a sense of honor, more come through alive than are slain, but from those who flee comes neither glory nor any help.

- Homer
Faith and prayer are simple things, . . . but when we begin to want faith, and to assist prayer by our own inventions and to explain away God's providence, then faith and prayer become intricate and uncertain. We cannot serve God and mammon. We must either utterly depend on God (and therefore on our own reason enlightened by His spirit after prayer), or we must utterly depend on the empirical maxims of the world. Choose!

- MS. Letter.
Treating your adversary with respect is giving him an advantage to which he is not entitled.

- Johnson, Samuel
Those who build beneath the stars build too low.

- Young, Edward
The most common of all antagonisms arises from a man's taking a seat beside you on the train, a seat to which he is completely entitled.

- Robert Benchley
My mistress'eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips'red... I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound.

- William Shakespeare
Language is not only the vehicle of thought, it is a great and efficient instrument in thinking.

- Davy, Sir Humphrey
Your neighbor is the man who needs you.

- Hubbard, Elbert
Even moderation ought not to be practiced to excess.

Christianity is the highest perfection of humanity.

- Johnson, Samuel
Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.

- Eleanor Roosevelt
Morality is not the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.

- Kant, Immanuel
Of all the ways of acquiring books, writing them oneself is regarded as the most praiseworthy method. Writers are really people who write books not because they are poor, but because they are dissatisfied with the books which they could buy but do not like.

- Benjamin, Walter
Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

- C. S. Lewis
