Famous Philosophers quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#1. I've been told by many the art of poetry's dead, I believe it's alive on pages they haven't read #Quote by Stanley Victor Paskavich
Famous Philosophers quotes by Barry Humphries
#2. He's very, very well-known. I'd say he's world-famous in Melbourne. #Quote by Barry Humphries
Famous Philosophers quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#3. If you ask today what art is, what its function is, what the meaning of art is and why one should create art, the answer given oftentimes by Western philosophers of art and those who special- ize in modern aesthetics is 'art for art's sake.' The modern response is that you just create art for the sake of art; but this was never the answer of traditional civilizations where one created art for both the sake of attainment of inner perfection and for human need in the deepest sense - because the needs of man are not only physical, they are also spiritual. We are as much in need of beauty as of the air that we breathe. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Famous Philosophers quotes by Ann B. Ross
#4. One or both of those babies could be president one day. Or they could discover the cure for a terrible disease, or one could be a famous musician or even a preacher.' I stopped and considered for a minute, wondering what would impress her more than that. 'Or just be fine and decent men or women, or man and woman, who would be a blessing to you in your old age. There's a purpose for every soul that comes into this world ... #Quote by Ann B. Ross
Famous Philosophers quotes by Edmund White
#5. I do probably come down a little hard on a group of people I call the 'blue chip gays.' I mean people who have managed to become very, very famous and are still very famous partly through staying in the closet, like Jasper Johns, Cy Twombly, Susan Sontag, Harold Brodkey and others. #Quote by Edmund White
Famous Philosophers quotes by James Ponsoldt
#6. With Rodham, for instance, it has to work on an emotional level. It has to work on a character level. If it's only "Look, it has famous people," then it's a wax museum come to life and that's really boring. It's sort of like what they say about science fiction and horror where the really good ones, if you remove that element of it, it still has to work. That's the reason The Shining works or Rosemary's Baby or Blade Runner. #Quote by James Ponsoldt
Famous Philosophers quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#7. Doubt is the stock in trade all philosophers as well as all scientific persons. Conversely, certainty is the cane that all religious fanatics and other zealots wield with outrageous righteousness. Only by allowing for doubt can we probe our ignorance. Doubt, therefore, is the essential seed of thought. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Famous Philosophers quotes by Karl Schroeder
#8. I intended to be famous by the time I was 16 and rich by the time I was 20. Curiously, it didn't pan out! #Quote by Karl Schroeder
Famous Philosophers quotes by Alison Gopnik
#9. Scientists and philosophers tend to treat knowledge, imagination and love as if they were all very separate parts of human nature. But when it comes to children, all three are deeply entwined. Children learn the truth by imagining all the ways the world could be, and testing those possibilities. #Quote by Alison Gopnik
Famous Philosophers quotes by Danielle Steel
#10. People are much more inclined to believe and say bad things about you if you're famous. #Quote by Danielle Steel
Famous Philosophers quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#11. Indeed, the application of the adjective "stoic" to a person who shows strength and courage in misfortune probably owes more to the aristocratic Roman value system than it does to Greek philosophers. Stoicism #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Famous Philosophers quotes by Anish Rajan
#12. I made a mistake,
to learn from it,
not for you to critize #Quote by Anish Rajan
Famous Philosophers quotes by Deyth Banger
#13. Hey, why this person blocked me?", "WTF, this guy I know him!", "WTF this guy I don't know but he has send me request???", "Oh,oh That's the famous singer from the TV!! I know that person, I know him?!, I know him!?"... This is called the future - so my question is are you prepared for this? #Quote by Deyth Banger
Famous Philosophers quotes by John Fowles
#14. He stared to sea. I gave up all ideas of practicing medicine. In spite of what I have just said about the wave and the water, in those years in France I am afraid I lived a selfish life. That is, I offered myself every pleasure. I traveled a great deal. I lost some money dabbling in the theatre, but I made much more dabbling on the Bourse. I gained a great many amusing friends, some of whom are now quite famous. But I was never very happy. I suppose I was fortunate. It took me only five years to discover what some rich people never discover - that we all have a certain capacity for happiness and unhappiness. And that the economic hazards of life do not seriously affect it. #Quote by John Fowles
Famous Philosophers quotes by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy
#15. Looking at the works of art that are considered worthy of preservation in our Museums, and that were once the common objects of the market place, I could not but realise that a society can only be considered truly civilised when it is possible for every man to earn his living by the very work he would rather be doing than anything else in the world, a condition that has only been attained in social orders integrated on the basis of vocation, "svadharma".

At the same time I should like to emphasis that I have never built up a philosophy of my own or wished to establish a new school of thought. Perhaps the greatest thing I have learnt is never to think for myself; I fully agree with Andre Gide that "Toutes choses sont dites deja", and what I have sought is to understand what has been said, while taking no account of the "inferior philosophers". Holding with Heraclitus that the Word is common to all, and that Wisdom is to know the Will whereby all things are steered, I am convinced with Jeremias that the human cultures in all their apparent diversity are but the dialects of one and the same language of the spirit, that there is a "common universe of discourse" transcending the differences of tongues". #Quote by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy
Famous Philosophers quotes by Rocky Carroll
#16. I never wanted to become an actor to be famous. I just wanted to be a good actor. It served me pretty well. #Quote by Rocky Carroll
Famous Philosophers quotes by Liz Hester
#17. In every end is the seed of a new beginning...water it well #Quote by Liz Hester
Famous Philosophers quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#18. Kings and philosophers shit - and so do ladies. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Famous Philosophers quotes by David Berlinski
#19. Some philosophers see into themselves, and some into their times; still others forge an alliance with the future. #Quote by David Berlinski
Famous Philosophers quotes by Julie Burchill
#20. Fact is, famous people say fame stinks because they love it so - like a secret restaurant or holiday island they don't want the hoi polloi to get their grubby paws on. #Quote by Julie Burchill
Famous Philosophers quotes by Isaac Asimov
#21. Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction
its essence
has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Famous Philosophers quotes by Walter Scott
#22. A Finnan haddock has a relish of a peculiar and delicate flavour, inimitable on any other coast than that of Aberdeenshire. Some of our Edinburgh philosophers tried to produce their equal in vain. I was one of a party at dinner where the philosophical haddocks were placed in competition with the genuine Finnan fish. These were served round without distinguishing whence they came; but only one gentleman out of twelve present espoused the cause of philosophy. #Quote by Walter Scott
Famous Philosophers quotes by Katherine Applegate
#23. It's hard to put into words. Gorillas are not complainers. We're dreamers, poets, philosophers, nap takers. #Quote by Katherine Applegate
Famous Philosophers quotes by Oliver Lodge
#24. The conception of Godhead formed by some devout philosophers and mystics has quite rightly been so immeasurably vast, though still assuredly utterly inadequate and necessarily beneath reality, that the notion of a God revealed in human formborn, sufferin. #Quote by Oliver Lodge
Famous Philosophers quotes by Nick Kroll
#25. Mel Brooks came to see Oh, Hello in L.A. Mulaney and I had a meeting with him, and we invited him to come to the show, and he saw the Oh, Hello show live in L.A. To me, he's the most famous person. Having him come to our show that was so inspired by both of us loving The Producers and all his movies. #Quote by Nick Kroll
Famous Philosophers quotes by Richard Hooker
#26. You know who we been living with for the past week? We been living with the only man in history who ever took a piece in the ladies' can of a Boston & Maine train. When the conductor caught him in there with his Winter Carnival date she screamed, 'He trapped me!' and that's how he got his name. This is the famous Trapper John. God, Trapper, I speak for the Duke as well as myself when I say it's an honor to have you with us. Have a martini, Trapper. #Quote by Richard Hooker
Famous Philosophers quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#27. And to be quite frank, that is precisely what we need philosophers for. We do not need them to choose a beauty queen or the day's bargain in tomatoes. (This is why they are often unpopular!) Philosophers will try to ignore highly topical affairs and instead try to draw people's attention to what is eternally 'true,' eternally 'beautiful,' and eternally 'good. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder
Famous Philosophers quotes by Zeljko Obradovic
#28. If you play good attack, you win the game, but, if you play good defence you win championships #Quote by Zeljko Obradovic
Famous Philosophers quotes by Eileen Myles
#29. On The Death of Robert Lowell
by Eileen Myles
O, I don't give a shit.
He was an old white haired man
Insensate beyond belief and
Filled with much anxiety about his imagined
Pain. Not that I'd know
I hate fucking wasps.
The guy was a loon.
Signed up for Spring Semester at Macleans
A really lush retreat among pines and
Hippy attendants. Ray Charles also
once rested there.
So did James Taylor…
The famous, as we know, are nuts.
Take Robert Lowell.
The old white haired coot.
Fucking dead. #Quote by Eileen Myles
Famous Philosophers quotes by Lynne Reid Banks
#30. The BBC is very good at period drama - world-famous for getting the details right. #Quote by Lynne Reid Banks
Famous Philosophers quotes by Taya Kyle
#31. He called back with an incredible report: there were people lined up around the store already.
Wow, I thought.
Wow didn't begin to cover it. People lined up on two floors of the store to talk to Chris and get their books signed, hours before he was even scheduled to arrive. Chris was overwhelmed when he got there, and so was I. The week before, he'd been just another guy walking down the street. Now, all of a sudden he was famous.
Except he was still the same Chris Kyle, humble and a bit abashed, ready to shake hands and pose for a picture, and always, at heart, a good ol' boy.
"I'm so nervous," confided one of the people on the line as he approached Chris. "I've been waiting for three hours just to see you."
"Oh, I'm sorry," said Chris. "Waitin' all that time and come to find out there's just another redneck up here."
The man laughed, and so did Chris. It was something he'd repeat, in different variations, countless times that night and over the coming weeks.
We stayed for three or four hours that first night, far beyond what had been advertised, with Chris signing each book, shaking each hand, and genuinely grateful for each person who came. For their part, they were anxious not just to meet him but to thank him for his service to our country-and by extension, the service of every military member whom they couldn't personally thank. From the moment the book was published, Chris became the son, the brother, the nephew, the cousin, #Quote by Taya Kyle
Famous Philosophers quotes by Hulk Hogan
#32. I'm the man that made wrestling famous. #Quote by Hulk Hogan
Famous Philosophers quotes by Mac Miller
#33. I just kind of kick it at my crib all day because I'm not famous at my house. #Quote by Mac Miller
Famous Philosophers quotes by Rachel Johnson
#34. English people are famous for never speaking out but only saying what they really feel about you behind your back. Americans believe the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. I like exploring those, er, differences in national snippiness. #Quote by Rachel Johnson
Famous Philosophers quotes by Julien Duvivier
#35. It won't work. You see, he is a liar and a thief. And he's been one for too long. He can't retire now. In addition to which. He has become, I'm afraid, a hack.'
'He may be all those things but she knows he's not.'
'What gives her that curious idea?'
'She's been with him constantly for the last few days. She's seen him shaking with terror, exhausted, ready to quit. She's watched him pull himself together again and she's also seen him be warm and tender. And funny. Not famous-international-wit funny but really funny.'
'Do you think she's an idiot? Do you think she doesn't know what kind of man he is? Or what he needs?'
'And what he needs is L-O-V-E? Uh-uh it's too late. He is 43 years old. Or will be this October. He's been married twice, both times disastrously and there have been too many years of... too much dough, too much bad writing and too much whiskey. He's got nothing left inside to give. Even if he could, which he can't.'
'But that's not true. You can, you have. I just know it.'
'No, you don't. It's lousy. In any case, the problem is you're not in love with the script. You're in love with me. And why shouldn't you be? When suddenly, waltzing into your life comes this charming and relatively handsome stranger. Me. Smooth as silk, with a highly practised line of chatter, specifically designed to knock relatively unsophisticated chicks like you Miss Simpson, right on their ears. Which I'm terribly afraid I've done. Well if it's the last #Quote by Julien Duvivier
Famous Philosophers quotes by Jim Capaldi
#36. They gave it to us for about five bucks a week, and we just went there to live. Probably the first band that ever did that back then and it became the famous cottage. #Quote by Jim Capaldi
Famous Philosophers quotes by Morgan Llywelyn
#37. Although Erc was bitterly disappointed, there was another route to prestige. He possessed gifts of the mind sufficient to gain admittance to the order of Druids, the intellectual class of Celtic society. Members of the order were not practitioners of a specific religion, nor were they priests in the Christian sense of the word. The Greeks were more nearly correct by describing Druids as poet-philosophers. #Quote by Morgan Llywelyn
Famous Philosophers quotes by Lady Gaga
#38. I've always been famous, it's just no one knew it yet. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Famous Philosophers quotes by Matthew Arnold
#39. Have something to say, and say it as clearly as you can. That is the only secret. #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Famous Philosophers quotes by Nancy Stephan
#40. I believe there's a place on the brink of suffering where all of one's emotions gather like great philosophers. They reason amongst themselves on the best course of action. But it is only when love stands up and decides when and where the line must be drawn that all of the other emotions fall silent in agreement because they know that love is never wrong. It's in that moment of pure love that decisions and action become clear. #Quote by Nancy Stephan
Famous Philosophers quotes by Michel Onfray
#41. Philosophy is best practised by people in general and not by philosophers alone. Philosophy is too often a luxury now, but in ancient Greece, carpenters, masons and beggars were the main practitioners. What I am trying to develop is a philosophical system where all the subjects can be taught. #Quote by Michel Onfray
Famous Philosophers quotes by D.R. Khashaba
#42. The ruinous abdication by philosophy of its rightful domain is the consequence of the oblivion of philosophers to a great insight first beheld clearly by Socrates and re-affirmed by Kant as by no other philosopher. Science, concerned solely and exclusively with objective existents, cannot give answers to questions about meanings and values. Only ideas engendered by the mind and to be found nowhere but in the mind (Socrates), only the pure transcendental forms supplied by reason (Kant), can secure the ideals and values and put us in touch with the realities that constitute our moral and spiritual life. Twenty-four centuries after Socrates, two centuries after Kant, we badly need to re-learn the lesson. #Quote by D.R. Khashaba
Famous Philosophers quotes by Virginia Woolf
#43. Yet Byron never made tea as you do, who fill the pot so that when you put the lid on the tea spills over. There is a brown pool on the table
it is running among your books and papers. Now you mop it up, clumsily, with your pocket-hankerchief. You then stuff your hankerchief back into your pocket
that is not Byron; that is so essentially you that if I think of you in twenty years' time, when we are both famous, gouty and intolerable, it will be by that scene: and if you are dead, I shall weep. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Famous Philosophers quotes by Norm Pleimann
#44. A famous philosopher, Stormin' Norman Pleimann once said,"When the money is low, love will blow. #Quote by Norm Pleimann
Famous Philosophers quotes by Jet Li
#45. Bruce Lee was very famous. I watched his movies and he is amazing. He is a martial arts master, his philosophy, his movement, both physically and mentally, were very strong. #Quote by Jet Li
Famous Philosophers quotes by Aberjhani
#46. What is this slow blue dream of living,
and this fevered death by dreaming? #Quote by Aberjhani
Famous Philosophers quotes by Jon Ronson
#47. I think our natural disposition as humans is to plod along until we get old and stop. But with social media, we've created a stage for constant artificial high drama. #Quote by Jon Ronson
