Famous quotes containing the word philosopher:

    When the situation is, what we would wish, nothing is so ill- timed as to hint at the circumstances which make it so: you thank Fortune ... you had reason—the heart knew it, and was satisfied; and who but an English philosopher would have sent notices of it to the brain to reverse the judgment?
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    A philosopher who is not taking part in discussions is like a boxer who never goes into the ring.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)

    To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust. It is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
