Famous quotes containing the word philosopher:

    Not fat but the greatest possible suppleness and strength is what a good dancer wants from his nourishment—and I could not even guess what the spirit of a philosopher might wish to be more than a good dancer. For dance is his ideal, and also his art, and finally also his only piety, his “service to God.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The philosopher has never killed any priests, whereas the priest has killed a great many philosophers.
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)

    A strange effect of marriage, such as the nineteenth century has made it! The boredom of married life inevitably destroys love, when love has preceded marriage. And yet, as a philosopher has observed, it speedily brings about, among people who are rich enough not to have to work, an intense boredom with all quiet forms of enjoyment. And it is only dried up hearts, among women, that it does not predispose to love.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)
