Famous quotes containing the word philosophers:

    The truth has never been of any real value to any human being—it is a symbol for mathematicians and philosophers to pursue. In human relations kindness and lies are worth a thousand truths.
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)

    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Although philosophers generally believe in laws and deny causes, explanatory practice in physics is just the reverse.
    Nancy Cartwright (b. 1945)
