Philosophical quotes page 1 -2 -3

St. Thomas Aquinas
1225-1274, Italian Scholastic Philosopher and Theologian

Unintelligible answers to insoluble problems.
Henry Brooks Adams
1838-1918, American Historian

The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are. It is in this that his liberty consists -- in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record.
Henri Frederic Amiel
1821-1881, Swiss Philosopher, Poet, Critic

The traditional disputes of philosophers are, for the most part, as unwarranted as they are unfruitful.
Sir Alfred Jules Ayer
1910-1989, British Philosopher

Francis Bacon
1561-1626, British Philosopher, Essayist, Statesman

But take note that he proves all these unheard-of paradoxes without any fallacious or sophistical reasoning.
Savinien Cyrano De Bergerac
1619-1655, French Satirist, Playwright

What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind.
George Berkeley
1685-1753, Irish-born British Bishop, Philosopher

A route of many roads leading from nowhere to nothing.
Ambrose Bierce
1842-1914, American Author, Editor, Journalist, ''The Devil's Dictionary''

All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher.
Ambrose Bierce

We're not just sharing our opinion, it is how other's feel as well. So keep the wisdom of the past alive and recite some philosophical quotes today.
