PHILOSOPHICAL  ENGLISH 

QUOTES AND APHORISMS

There is a theory that state: "If anyone finds out what the universe is for it  will disappear and be replaced by something more bizzarly inexplicable."There is another theory that states: "This has already happened..."
Douglas Adams, "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.
Chang-tzu

The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.
Albert Einstein

God does not play dice with the universe.
Albert Einstein

Everything you've learned in school as "obvious" becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There's not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.
R. Buckminster Fuller

It has always seemed to me extreme presumptuousness on the part of those who want to make human ability the measure of what nature can and knows how to do, since, when one comes down to it, there is not one effect in nature, no matter how small, that even the most speculative minds can fully understand.
Galileo Galilei

Imagination is the one weapon in the war against reality.
Jules de Gaultier

It is my supposition that the Universe in not only queerer than we imagine, is queerer than we CAN imagine. J.B.S. Haldane

My goal is simple. It is complete understanding of the universe, why it as it is and why it exists as all.
Stephen Hawking

The universe is not hostile, nor yet is it unfriendly. It is simply indifferent.
Rev. John H. Holmes

The chess board is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the universe, the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just and patient. But we also know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.
Thomas Henry Huxley

The farther it gets from the bench it was worked on, the more real the real world becomes.
Todd Johnson

The most merciful thing in the world ... is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.
H. P. Lovecraft

You don't fuck around with the infinite.
Mean Streets

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
John Muir (1838-1914)

For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.
Blaise Pascal

The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
Eden Phillpotts

If you wish to make an apple pie truly from scratch, you must first invent the universe.
Carl Sagan

The philosophers of the Middle Ages demonstrated both that the Earth did not exist and also that it was flat. Today they are still arguing about whether the world exists, but they no longer dispute about whether it is flat. Vilhjalmur Stefansson

The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy.
Steven Weinberg

Maybe we're just lucky to live in a universe composed by a divine Bach. Perhaps next door, the inhabitants of a John Cage universe muddle along in chaos...
Michael Weiss, in sci.physics

So far as modern science is concerned, we have to abandon completely the idea that by going into the realm of the small we shall reach the ultimate foundations of the universe. I believe we can abandon this idea without any regret. The universe is infinite in all directions, not only above us in the large but also below us in the small.
Emil Wiechert

Reality is good for you...in small doses.

The universe is laughing behind your back.

Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the
systematic organization of hatreds.
Henry Adams

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
William E. Borah

I would like to electrocute everyone who uses the word 'fair' in connection with income tax policies.
William F. Buckley

Diplomacy --- the art of saying "Nice doggie" 'til you can find a stick.
Wynn Catlin

Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those others that have been tried from time to time.
Winston Churchill
