Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Kiran Nagarkar
#4. You can read all the books in the world on the Nazi concentration camps and the gas chambers, and yet reality will draw upon you only when you are put through that yourself. It is a law of God, or nature, if you prefer, that pain, suffering and grief cannot be transferred or known by proxy. Neither empathy nor sympathy but experience alone is a valid currency of affliction. It alone makes you a card-holding member all allows you to join the club of the wretched of the earth. All else is counterfeit. #Quote by Kiran Nagarkar
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#5. Religion is but a single brand of superstition (others include beliefs in astrology, paranormal phenomena, homeopathy, and spiritual healing), but it is the most widespread and harmful form of superstition. And science is but one form of rationality (philosophy and mathematics are others), but it is a highly developed form, and the only one capable of describing and understanding reality. #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Nick Land
#6. The infrastructure of power is human neurosoft compatible ROM. Authority instantiates itself as linear instruction pathways, genetic baboonery, scriptures, traditions, rituals, and gerontocratic hierarchies, resonant with the dominator ur-myth that the nature of reality has already been decided. If you want to find ICE, try thinking about what is blocking you out of the past. It certainly isn't a law of nature. Temporalization decompresses intensity, installing constraint. #Quote by Nick Land
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Paulo Coelho
#7. Knowledge is an illusion. Ecstasy is the true reality. Knowledge fills us with guilt. Ecstasy allows us to be one with he who is the Universe, before it existed, and after it has been destroyed. #Quote by Paulo Coelho

Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Allan Lokos
#11. Compassion is not complete if it does not include oneself. #Quote by Allan Lokos
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#12. I was perplexed by the failure of teachers at school to address what seemed the most urgent matter of all: the bewildering, stomach-churning insecurity of being alive. The standard subjects of history, geography, mathematics, and English seemed perversely designed to ignore the questions that really mattered. As soon as I had some inkling of what 'philosophy' meant, I was puzzled as to why we were not taught it. And my skepticism about religion only grew as I failed to see what the vicars and priests I encountered gained from their faith. They struck me either as insincere, pious, and aloof or just bumblingly good-natured. (p. 10) #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Valentin Tomberg
#13. A person who has had the misfortune to fall victim to the spell of a philosophical system (and the spells of sorcerers are mere trifles in comparison to the disastrous effect of the spell of a philosophical system!) can no longer see the world, or people, or historic events, as they are; he sees everything only through the distorting prism of the system by which he is possessed. Thus, a Marxist of today is incapable of seeing anything else in the history of mankind other than the "class struggle".

What I am saying concerning mysticism, gnosis, magic and philosophy would be considered by him only as a ruse on the part of the bourgeois class, with the aim of "screening with a mystical and idealistic haze" the reality of the exploitation of the proletariat by the bourgeoisie…although I have not inherited anything from my parents and I have not experienced a single day without having to earn my living by means of work recognised as "legitimate" by Marxists!

Another contemporary example of possession by a system is Freudianism. A man possessed by this system will see in everything that I have written only the expression of "suppressed libido", which seeks and finds release in this manner. It would therefore be the lack of sexual fulfillment which has driven me to occupy myself with the Tarot and to write about it!
Is there any need for further examples? Is it still necessary to cite the Hegelians with their distortion of the history of humanity, the Scho #Quote by Valentin Tomberg
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Winston Graham
#14. I have little use for religion as it is practiced, or for astrology, or for belief in witchcraft or omens of good or ill-luck. I think they all stem from some insufficiency in men's minds, perhaps from a lack of a willingness to feel themselves utterly alone. But now and then I feel that there is something beyond the material world, somethings we all feel intimations of but cannot explain. Underneath the religious vision there is the harsh fundamental reality of all our lives, because we know we must live and die as the animals we are. But sometimes I suspect that under that harsh reality there is a further vision, still deeper based, that comes nearer to true reality than the reality we know. #Quote by Winston Graham
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Simerjeet Singh
#15. Running after money or fame is like trying to catch your own shadow. #Quote by Simerjeet Singh
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Alberto Caeiro
#16. It's an already inside outside,
The philosophers say it's the soul
But it's not the soul: it's the animal or the man itself
In its way of existing. #Quote by Alberto Caeiro
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Travis Culliton
#17. I do not judge the individual based on their belief. If I were to, then I would, undoubtedly, be no better than the (religious) system that I frown upon. #Quote by Travis Culliton
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Raheel Farooq
#18. If proof were the standard of truth, fallacies would constitute the ultimate reality. #Quote by Raheel Farooq
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
#19. The echo is a gift, passed on to us by our ancestors many ages ago, to remind us of ourselves. To confirm our existence. To remedy our loneliness. Though we must be still in order to hear it. #Quote by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Karl Polanyi
#20. Freedom's utter frustration in fascism is, indeed, the inevitable result of the liberal philosophy, which claims that power and compulsion are evil, that freedom demands their absence from a human community. No such thing is possible; in a complex society this becomes apparent. This leaves no alternative but either to remain faithful to an illusionary idea of freedom and deny the reality of society, or to accept that reality and reject the idea of freedom. The first is the liberal's conclusion; the latter the fascist's. #Quote by Karl Polanyi
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Brooke Holmes
#21. Heraclitus, Empedocles, and Parmenides all state or suggest that thinking the right kinds of thoughts positively transforms our relationship to our environment. If thoughts are the right kind, it is presumably because they build on the particular receptivity of human nature to true knowledge about the nature of things, knowledge that, in turn, brings the person into greater harmony with the world around him. Thought is thus a uniquely transformative encounter with reality. #Quote by Brooke Holmes

Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Forrest Curran
#23. The Lotus in Buddhism is a sacred symbol that represents purity and resurrection as attributes that develop through a spiritual awakening of the self. With humble beginnings in swamplands, the Lotus flower exquisitely blooms, pure and untainted, from this murky world it thrives in. The Lotus flower represents a higher state of mind, a strong spirit cultivated far from the suffering and temptations of this muddied world that personifies beauty through the present moment. #Quote by Forrest Curran
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Harry G. Frankfurt
#24. When we characterize talk as hot air, we mean that what comes out of the speaker's mouth is only that. It is mere vapor. His speech is empty, without substance or content. His use of language, accordingly, does not contribute to the purpose it purports to serve. No more information is communicated than if the speaker had merely exhaled. There are similarities between hot air and excrement, incidentally, which make hot air seem an especially suitable equivalent for bullshit. Just as hot air is speech that has been emptied of all informative content, so excrement is matter from which everything nutritive has been removed. Excrement may be regarded as the corpse of nourishment, what remains when the vital elements in food have been exhausted. […] In any event, it cannot serve the purposes of sustenance, any more than hot air can serve those of communication. #Quote by Harry G. Frankfurt
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#25. A person who is asleep is either lost in deep unconsciousness or absorbed in a dream. Metaphorically, this was how the Buddha must have seen both his previous self as well as everyone else he had known: they either were blind to the questions of existence or sought consolation from them in metaphysical or religious fantasies. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Iris Murdoch
#26. Tyrants always fear art because tyrants want to mystify while art tends to clarify. The good artist is a vehicle of truth"

"Great art is able to display and discuss the central area of our reality, our actual consciousness, in a more exact way than science or even philosophy can. #Quote by Iris Murdoch
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Lionel Suggs
#27. Failure is the quintessence to triumph. Fear is a necessity. Whatever is needed in one's life to maintain the universal principle of Chaos should be seasoned and not discouraged. Regardless of whether it's crazy, it's one's subjective reality. That makes it beautiful. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by James S. Kunen
#28. We youths say "like" all the time because we mistrust reality. #Quote by James S. Kunen
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by James Gleick
#29. Philosophy set knowledge adrift; physics anchored knowledge to reality. #Quote by James Gleick
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Alan W. Watts
#30. To Taoism that which is absolutely still or absolutely perfect is absolutely dead, for without the possibility of growth and change there can be no Tao. In reality there is nothing in the universe which is completely perfect or completely still; it is only in the minds of men that such concepts exist. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Kosho Uchiyama
#31. KODO SAWAKI: Studying originally meant aspiring to discover the meaning of life. These days studying has become all about getting a job. #Quote by Kosho Uchiyama
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Sheng Yen
#32. I follow four dictates: face it, accept it, deal with it, then let it go. #Quote by Sheng Yen
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Aldous Huxley
#33. Our conviction that the world is meaningless is due in part to the fact (discussed in a later paragraph) that the philosophy of meaningless lends itself very effectively to furthering the ends of political and erotic passion; in part to a genuine intellectual error - the error of identifying the world of science, a world from which all meaning has deliberately been excluded, with ultimate reality. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Suzana Trifkovic
#34. I'm an avalanche, waiting to fall on you, to awaken your deepest emotions, your fears, desires, longings, dreams. It is my purpose. I am your dream, through night and day, but if you wish to own me, you will find empty hands and understand that I am just as much an illusion as I am your delusions reality. I can not be owned. I'm real and unreal. I'm everything you love and hate, I'm here to be opposite of you to shape you, because I am your lesson, and my lesson is you. #Quote by Suzana Trifkovic
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Max Scheler
#35. In Leibniz we can already find the striking observation that *cogitatur ergo est* is no less evident than *cogito ergo sum*. Naturally, *est* here does not mean existence or reality but being of whatever kind and form, including even ideal being, fictive being, conscious-being [*Bewusst-Sein*], etc. However, we must go even beyond this thesis of Leibniz. The correlate of the act of *cogitatio* is not, as Leibniz said, being simply, but only that type of being we call "objectifiable being." Objectifiable being must be sharply distinguished from the non-objectifiable being of an act, that is, from a kind of entity which possesses its mode of being only in performance [*Vollzug*], namely, in the performance of the act. "Being," in the widest sense of the word, belongs indeed to the being-of-an-act [*Akt-Sein*], to *cogitare*, which does not in turn require another *cogitare*. Similarly, we are only vaguely "aware" of our drives [*Triebleben*] without having them as objects as we do those elements of consciousness which lend themselves to imagery. For this reason the first order of evidence is expressed in the principle, "There is something," or, better, "There is not nothing." Here we understand by the word "nothing" the negative state of affairs of not-being in general rather than "not being something" or "not being actual." A second principle of evidence is that everything which "is" in any sense of the possible kinds of being can be analyzed in terms of its character or essen #Quote by Max Scheler
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Cyrus Panjvani
#36. Clarity is like casting light. Clarity allows us to see better and eases the path of understanding. And just as one light source need not deny the illumination of another but can add to it, the understanding gained through one explanation can stand to gain from another, even if it is different in approach. The truth is more exclusive... #Quote by Cyrus Panjvani
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Debasish Mridha
#37. When you dream with optimism and trust, it becomes a reality fast. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#38. Reality is infinitely diverse. It resists classification, inward life. Peculiar to us ... not simply the official existence. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Debasish Mridha
#39. In some way or another we are all agnostics. We don't believe in ninety-nine percent of Gods, and we don't know the ultimate reality. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Evan Guerra
#40. I was born into this torrid world a degenerate, eternally condemned a vessel of belligerency, destined to one day end. But despite my mortal disposition, I possess my voice. I have that which is gifted to me from the bosom of the gods. The beauty of self-expression. And through this gift I will come to know and share the true nature of reality #Quote by Evan Guerra
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Oli Anderson
#41. Dialogue unplugs you from your own programming as you become more real; debate turns up the voltage and entrenches you more deeply. #Quote by Oli Anderson
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Debasish Mridha
#42. To change the reality, change the perception but not the reality. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#43. Poetry is more than a form of art. It's a vibration and a pulsing heart. Whether it's sour or whether it's sweet. It can give you strength no one can defeat #Quote by Stanley Victor Paskavich

Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Daniel Jones
#45. This is our recurring temptation - to live within our camp's caves, taking turns both as the shadow-puppeteers and the audience. We chant our camp's mantras repeatedly so they continue reverberating in our skulls. When we stay entrenched within our belief-camps, we create the illusion of secure reality by reinforcing each other's presuppositions and paradigms. We choose specific watering holes of information and evidence, and we influence each other in interpreting that data in accordance with the conclusions we desire. Our camps reinforce our existing cognitive biases, making cheating all the more common and easy. #Quote by Daniel Jones
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#46. The true self is that which is in touch with reality.
The false self is the aspects of your personality that are adapted to threats and no longer consciously recognizes either the adaptation or the threat. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Michel Foucault
#47. Curiosity is a vice that has been stigmatized in turn by Christianity, by philosophy, and even by a certain conception of science. Curiosity is seen as futility. However, I like the word; it suggests something quite different to me. It evokes "care"; it evokes the care one takes of what exists and what might exist; a sharpened sense of reality, but one that is never immobilized before it; a readiness to find what surrounds us strange and odd; a certain determination to throw off familiar ways of thought and to look at the same things in a different way; a passion for seizing what is happening now and what is disappearing; a lack of respect for the traditional hierarchies of what is important and fundamental. I dream of a new age of curiosity. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Ken Poirot
#48. Real life isn't purely filled with roses and rainbows. #Quote by Ken Poirot
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Balajinnatha Pandita
#49. Starting from the source of vibrant Consciousness, the first two tattvas of Shaivism are (1) Shiva tattva and (2) Shakti tattva. It is important to understand at the beginning that these two tattvas are only linguistic conventions and are not actually part of creation. According to the deep yogic experience of the sages of this philosophy, there is no difference between Shiva tattva and Shakti tattva. They are both actually one with Paramasiva. They are considered to be two tattvas only for the convenience of philosophical thinking and as a way of clarifying the two aspects of the one absolute reality, Paramasiva. These two aspects are Shiva, the transcendental unity, and Shakti, the universal diversity. The changeless, absolute and pure consciousness is Shiva, while the natural tendency of Shiva towards the outward manifestation of the five divine activities is Shakti. So, even though Shiva is Shakti, and Shakti is Shiva, and even though both are merely aspects of the same reality called Paramasiva, still, these concepts of Shiva-hood and Shakti-hood are counted as the first two tattvas. These two tattvas are at the plane of absolute purity and perfect unity.

- B. N. Pandit, Specific Principles of Kashmir Shaivism (3rd ed., 2008), p. 73. #Quote by Balajinnatha Pandita
Reality Philosophy Buddhism quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#50. A person employs human reason and intellect to guide our earthly expedition. We can stumble through life satisfying the unconscious dictates of the mind or take control of our life by increasing our level of conscious awareness. Philosophy always commences with an act of consciousness. We must follow our moral passions. We create our reality by what we perceive as truth. We imagine a life that we wish to experience. Live the life that you envision. Do not allow other people or external determinates to control your conception of the self, because otherwise you are living someone else's life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
