Quotes About No Point In Life

"The idea that one will die is more painful than dying, but less painful than the idea that another person is dead, that, becoming once more a still, plane surface after having engulfed a person, a reality extends, without even a ripple at the point of disappearance from which that person is excluded, in which there no longer exists any will, any knowledge, and from which it is as difficult to reascend to the idea that that person has lived as, from the still recent memory of his life, it is to think that he is comparable with the insubstantial images, the memories, left us by the characters in a novel we have been reading." - Author: Marcel Proust

Quotes About Life Greek Philosophers

"The motive that impels modern reason to know must be described as the desire to conquer and dominate. For the Greek philosophers and the Fathers of the church, knowing meant something different: it meant knowing in wonder. By knowing or perceiving one participates in the life of the other. Here knowing does not transform the counterpart into the property of the knower; the knower does not appropriate what he knows. On the contrary, he is transformed through sympathy, becoming a participant in what he perceives." - Author: Jürgen Moltmann

Quotes About Utopian Society

"Utopianisms equality is intolerant of diversity, uniqueness, debate, etc., for utopianisms purpose requires a singular focus. There can be no competing voices or causes slowing or obstructing societys long and righteous march. Utopianism relies on deceit, propaganda, dependence, intimidation, and force. In its more aggressive state, as the malignancy of the enterprise becomes more painful and its impossibility more obvious, it incites violence inasmuch as avenues for free expression and civil dissent are cut off. Violence becomes the individuals primary recourse and the states primary response. Ultimately, the only way out is the states termination." - Author: Mark R. Levin

Quotes About Operar

"Un uomo non ha il permesso di esercitare la medicina se non conosce il corpo umano, ma un finanziere può operare liberamente senza sapere un bel nulla dei molteplici effetti delle sue attività, salvo, naturalmente, leffetto controllabile sul suo conto in banca. Come sarebbe bello un mondo in cui nessuno potesse diventare agente di cambio senza aver superato un esame di economia e di poesia greca, e in cui i politicanti fossero costretti ad avere una profonda ed aggiornata conoscenza della storia e della letteratura moderna!" - Author: Bertrand Russell
