Top 10 Interesting Philosophy Quotes



Aristotle: “Men are good in one way, but bad in many.”


Albert Camus: “Man stands face to face with the irrational. He feels within him his longing for happiness and for reason. The absurd is born of this confrontation between the human need and the unreasonable silence of the world.”


Socrates: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”


Plato: “Philosophy begins in wonder.”


Bertrand Russell: “Every proposition which we understand must be composed wholly of constituents with which we are acquainted.”






David Hume: “The life of man is of no greater importance to the universe than that of an oyster.”


Jeremy Bentham: “A full-grown horse or dog is beyond comparison a more rational, as well as a more conversible animal, than an infant of a day, or a week, or even a month, old. But suppose the case were otherwise, what would it avail? The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?”


Immanuel Kant: “Nothing can possibly be conceived in the world, or even out of it, which can be called good, without qualification, except a good will.”


Soren Kierkegaard: “A crowd … in its very concept is the untruth, by reason of the fact that it renders the individual completely impenitent and irresponsible, or at least weakens his sense of responsibility by reducing it to a fraction.”


Jean-Paul Sartre: “Man is condemned to be free.”
