Philosophers / Philosophical Quotes - February 4th 2013, 05:33 PM

Here are a few of my favorite quotes on the nature of mankind:

"Religions which condemn the pleasures of sense drive men to seek the pleasures of power. Throughout history power has been the vice of the ascetic." - Bertrand Russell

"A truer image of the world, I think, is obtained by picturing things as entering into the stream of time from an eternal world outside, than from a view which regards time as the devouring tyrant of all that is." - Bertrand Russell

“Suffering is not enough. Life is both dreadful and wonderful...How can I smile when I am filled with so much sorrow? It is natural--you need to smile to your sorrow because you are more than your sorrow.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

"If I needed you would you come to me,
Would you come to me, and ease my pain?
If you needed me
I would come to you
I'd swim the seas for to ease your pain"
- Townes Van Zandt

"All you have to do is be yourself, do your will, and rejoice" - Aleister Crowley

"We must conquer life by living it to the full, and then we can go meet death with a certain prestige" - Aleister Crowley

"Intolerance is evidence of impotence" - Aleister Crowley

"All men are guilty of the good they did not do" - Voltaire

"Prejudices are what fools use for reason" - Voltaire

"It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere" - Voltaire


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

GAY PRIDE!!!!!!

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?"
-Epicurus


"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love."
- Carl Sagan

'The only explanation Kant offers is to say that it is facilitated by means of a faculty.' Oh Nietzsche, you wonderfully sassy German you.

I really should be able to think of more since I'm studying philosophy at university :3


It's no surprise that you'll soon forget about me
