Famous quotes containing the word hume:

    Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous.
    —David Hume (1711–1776)

    It is not contrary to reason to prefer the destruction of the whole world to the scratching of my finger. It is not contrary to reason for me to choose my total ruin, to prevent the least uneasiness of an Indian, or person wholly unknown to me. It is as little contrary to reason to prefer even my own acknowledged lesser good to my greater, and have a more ardent affection for the former than the latter.
    —David Hume (1711–1776)

    The advantages found in history seem to be of three kinds, as it amuses the fancy, as it improves the understanding, and as it strengthens virtue.
    —David Hume (1711–1776)
