1. "On n'est pas le même selon qu'on a mangé du boudin ou du caviar; on n'est pas le même non plus selon qu'on vient de lire du Kant […] ou du Queneau."
Author: Amélie Nothomb
2. "Als ik één ding kan is het liefhebben. Dat lijkt niet veel bijzonders, maar ik ben er trots op.Ik heb het geleerd zoals een zwerfhond leert zwemmen: omdat hij met de rest van de worp in een jutezak werd gepropt en in een snelstromende rivier is geworpen.Die ene die het tegen alle verwachtingen in gered heeft, dat ben ik.Met in mijn oren nog het gejank van degenen die het niet haalden, moest ik leren ergens van te houden.Ik ben niet onder gegaan.Ik heb de kant bereikt.Ik heb lief.Andere mensen dragen hun verdriet in hun hart.Ongezien holt dat hen vanbinnen uit. Het is mijn redding geweest dat ik mijn verdriet aan de buitenkant draag, waar het niemand kan ontgaan."
Author: Arthur Japin
3. "Ever since Plato most philosophers have considered it part of their business to produce ‘proofs' of immortality and the existence of God. They have found fault with the proofs of their predecessors — Saint Thomas rejected Saint Anselm's proofs, and Kant rejected Descartes' — but they have supplied new ones of their own. In order to make their proofs seem valid, they have had to falsify logic, to make mathematics mystical, and to pretend that deepseated prejudices were heaven-sent intuitions."
Author: Bertrand Russell
4. "The Copernican revolution brought about by Kant was, I think, the most important single turning point in the history of philosophy."
Author: Bryan Magee
5. "If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and earnestly to hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I submit that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an"
Author: C.S. Lewis
6. "Am întors spatele filozofiei cînd mi-am dat seama ca e cu neputinta sa descopar la Kant vreo slabiciune omeneasca, vreo urma adevarata de tristete; la Kant si la toti filozofii. In raport cu muzica, cu mistica si poezia, activitatea filozofica e hranita de o seva sub¬tiata si de o profunzime suspecta, care nu-i ademe¬neste decît pe oamenii timizi sau caldicei. De altfel, filozofia — neliniste impersonala, refugiu în preajma unor idei anemice — e solutia tuturor celor care fug de exuberanta corupatoare a vietii. Aproape toti filo¬zofii au sfîrsit bine: iata supremul argument îm¬potriva filozofiei. Sfîrsitul lui Socrate însusi nu are în el nimic tragic: e o neîntelegere, sfîrsitul unui pedagog — iar Nietzsche s-a prabusit doar ca poet si vizionar: el si-a ispasit extazele, nu rationamentele."
Author: Emil Cioran
7. "El amor verdadero no era precisamente uno de esos absolutos; pregunta en la cual la palabra <>, sin embargo, tenía tanto que ver con la empleada por Kant o Hegel como la palabra <> con un descarrilamiento o un terremoto, con sus aullidos y su sangre. Bruno respondía que, a su juicio, la calidad del amor que hay entre dos seres que se quieren cambia de un instante a otro, haciéndose de pronto sublime, bajando luego hasta la trivialidad, convirtiéndose más tarde en algo afectuoso y cómodo, para repentinamente convertirse en un odio trágico o destructivo"."
Author: Ernesto Sabato
8. "Americans tend to endorse the use of physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia when the question is abstract and hypothetical."
Author: Ezekiel Emanuel
9. "Tenho sonhado mais que o que Napoleão fez.Tenho apertado ao peito hipotético mais humanidades do que Cristo,Tenho feito filosofias em segredo que nenhum Kant escreveu.Mas sou, e talvez serei sempre, o da mansarda,Ainda que não more nela;Serei sempre... o que não nasceu para isso;Serei sempre... só o que tinha qualidades;Serei sempre o que esperou que lhe abrissem a porta ao pé de uma parede sem porta,E cantou a cantiga do Infinito numa capoeira,E ouviu a voz de Deus num poço tapado.Crer em mim? Não, nem em nada."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
10. "Nothing is divine but what is agreeable to reason. Immanuel Kant "
Author: Immanuel Kant
11. "Nach Kant ist die Bildung der Weltkörper leichter zu deduzieren als die Bildung einer Raupe. Dasselbe gilt für das Besingen; und ein bestimmter Kleinstädter ist schwerer poetisch darzustellen als ein Nebel-Held aus Morgenland."
Author: Jean Paul
12. "We are humanity, Kant says. Humanity needs us because we are it. Kant believes in duty and considers remaining alive a primary human duty. For him one is not permitted to "renounce his personality," and while he states living as a duty, it also conveys a kind of freedom: we are not burdened with the obligation of judging whether our personality is worth maintaining, whether our life is worth living. Because living it is a duty, we are performing a good moral act just by persevering."
Author: Jennifer Michael Hecht
13. "All praise to the masters indeed, but we too could produce a Kant or a Hugo."
Author: Jose C. Orozco
14. "Now, eternity is beyond all categories of thought. This is an important point in all of the great Oriental religions. We want to think about God. God is a thought. God is a name. God is an idea. But its reference is to something that transcends all thinking. The ultimate mystery of being is beyond all categories of thought. As Kant said, the think in itself is no things. It transcends thingness, it goes past anything that could be thought. The best things can't be told because they transcend thought. The second best are misunderstood, because those are the thoughts that are supposed to refer to that which can't be thought about. The third best are what we talk about. And myth is that field of reference to what is absolutely transcendent....That's why it's absurd to speak of God as of either this sex or that sex. The divine power is antecedent to sexual separation."
Author: Joseph Campbell
15. "I am not a Kant expert and no Kantian but, I should say, a Kant sympathizer—especially where conflicts between Kantian and so-called historicist thinking are concerned, both in epistemology and in ethics."
Author: Leszek Kołakowski
16. "De liefde? Die bedrijf ik vaak maar ik spreek er nooit over.(Mme de Villeparisis in 'De kant van Guermantes'."
Author: Marcel Proust
17. "Intelligence, Kant reminds, is not so much a result of genius, rather it is a consequence of a determination to use it."
Author: Michael R. LeGault
18. "Într-adevar, lumea cum o vedem nu exista decât în crierul nostru. Nimeni nu va tagadui ca este deosebire între gânsac si câne . Privirea cânelui e inteligenta , el pricepe din lumea aceasta o portie mult mai buna decât gânsacul ; cu toate acestea amândoua aceste fiinte au ochi si crieri. Lumea nu-i cumu-i, ci cum o vedem; pentru gânsac, cum o vede el, pentru câne item , pentru membru de la primarie — pentru Kant item. Totusi câta deosebire între ochii de porc a susîntelesului membru si privirea adânca a înteleptului de la Königsberg."
Author: Mihai Eminescu
19. "Dogs do not have many advantages over people, but one of them is extremely important: euthanasia is not forbidden by law in their case; animals have the right to a merciful death."
Author: Milan Kundera
20. "The more narrow-minded a system is the more it will please worldly-wise people. Thus the system of the materialists, the doctrine of Helvetius and also Locke has recieved the most acclaim amongst his class. Thus Kant even now will find more followers than Fichte."
Author: Novalis
21. "But the self is precisely the integrator; it is the synthetic unity, as Kant said. It is the artist of life. It is only a small factor in the total organism/environment interaction, but it plays the crucial role of finding and making the meanings that we grow by."
Author: Paul Goodman
22. "Wenn die Leute über denselben Spaß lachen oder so manchen alten Scherz gemeinsam haben, der durch die Zeit nicht verblaßt und die Gewohnheit nicht flau wird, so wird das — mit Verlaub gesagt — eine bessere Vorbereitung für das gemein­schaftliche Leben sein, als so manche Dinge, die in der Welt einen edleren Klang haben. Man kann, wenn man will, Kant für sich allein lesen, aber einen Scherz muß man mit jemandem teilen."
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
23. "But still, how could they write whole libraries about someone like Kant and hardly even notice Taylor-that prophet who could see ten centuries ahead?"
Author: Yevgeny Zamyatin
