PHILOSOPHY

FAVORITE QUOTES

Man does not live like wild beasts in a world of merely physical things, but in a world of signs and symbols.
John Dewey (1859-1952)

My greatest genius was not studying anything, it occurs to me now. Because, when you study, you are left with the formula, follow the agreed rules. However, when one improvises, will not fear, do not know the limits, and ends by breaking them. Is easier to imitate what others do, follow the herd and put a suit and tie instead of a white cowboy hat in front of the international press here in London. A. F.

It's simple. Animal and human societies establish different sets of hierarchical differentiation, which can based on birth (aristocratic system), fortune, beauty, physical strength, intelligence, talent ... on the other hand, all these criteria seem equally despicable, and rejection; the only superiority which I recognize is kindness. Erotic attraction and money: we currently operate on a two-dimensional system. The rest, happiness and unhappiness of the people, is derived from it. For me it is not a theory at all: it is true that we live in a simple society, so these few sentences are enough to give a complete description.
Michel Houellebecq

Sweet and sour, hot and cold, color, are merely subjective; the only truth are atoms and the void.
Democritus

The most infamous is the life, the more valued the man; and then it is a protest, revenge of every moment.
HONORE DE BALZAC

The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven, is a manipulated and sanitized document. All faith is an invention.
Dan Brown

Sometimes I think that nothing makes sense. On a tiny planet, running to nowhere for millions of years, born in the midst of pain, we grow, we fight, we get sick, we suffer, we suffer, scream, die, die and others are born to restart the useless comedy. Would that be, really? I was contemplating this idea of ​​meaninglessness. Does our whole life would be a series of anonymous cries in a desert of indifferent stars?
Sabato, Ernesto.

Every time I'd stopped to think about it, the culture seemed a necessary compensation linked to unhappiness in our lives. Perhaps one could imagine a culture other linked to the celebration and lyricism, which would evolve into a state of happiness; but was not sure, and it seemed a theoretical consideration that he had no great importance to me.
Michel Houellebecq

He who makes a beast of himself is released from the pain of being a man.
DR. JOHNSON

We are the stories we tell ourselves.
Shekhar Kapur

The nature and cultural intricacies is half in the development of life. DNA is like a trap of origin. You can determine if you're a child of such parent or such mother, but that's not necessarily a link. DNA is only a beginning, a starting point.
Albertina Carri

If I could live my life again ... try to make more mistakes. It would be sillier than I have been, in fact, take fewer things seriously. Run more risks, watch more sunsets, climb more mountains, swim more rivers. I would go to more places I have not gone, eat more ice cream and less beans. I would try to have only good moments. For if they do, that life is made only of moments: do not miss the moment. If I could live again ... If I had another life ahead.
Fake Borges

He then came to mind an old saying popular ancient Greek fishermen who plunged to lung coral caves of the Aegean islands to catch lobsters. "When swimming through a dark tunnel, there comes a time when you do not have enough air to backtrack.'s Only chance is to go swimming into the unknown and pray to find a solution."
Dan Brown
