A writer must always try to have a philosophy and he should also have a psychology and a philology and many other things. Without a philosophy and a psychology and all these various other things he is not really worthy of being called a writer. I agree with Kant and Schopenhauer and Plato and Spinoza and that is quite enough to be called a philosophy. But then of course a philosophy is not the same thing as a style.
~ Gertrude Stein - [Philosophers and Philosophy]

~ Arthur Schopenhauer - [Philosophers and Philosophy]

Philosophers call God ''the great unknown'' ''The great misknown'' is more like it!
~ Joseph Roux - [Philosophers and Philosophy]

Quotation Bullet

Philosophers should consider the fact that the greatest happiness principle can easily be made an excuse for a benevolent dictatorship. We should replace it by a more modest and more realistic principle -- the principle that the fight against avoidable misery should be a recognized aim of public policy, while the increase of happiness should be left, in the main, to private initiative.
~ Karl Popper - [Philosophers and Philosophy]

Quotation Bullet

Philosophy does not regard pedigree, she received Plato not as a noble, but she made him one.
