Your Favorite Philosophical Quotes * 2
    #10262036 - 04/30/09 11:43 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

With figmentfragment's permission, I am incorporating her idea of saving good quotes from PS&P into a more general thread devoted to any of your favorite philosophical quotes that you've read or heard over the course of your life.  Pick your wisest aphorisms or whichever arbitrary strings of words tickle your heart-strings; enlighten the rest of us with meaningful sayings that you hold dear.  This includes both sayings from famous persons and pithily humorous droppings from the metaphorically 'nouveau riche' denizens of PS&P.  And if possible, please include a source.

I personally find very few things more enjoyable than stumbling across a good quote, and I hope the rest of you also harbor fond affections for these linguistic beasts.  Please, share those titillating truisms!

Because I can't move posts from one thread over to another, I'll go ahead and re-post the few responses from figmentfragment's thread here:

I can't find the thread I want, but the quote is from OrgoneConclusion...simple and straight to the point, in answer to a question posed by the OP.

"No. Next topic."

This one certainly ranks among the top 10 in my opinion:

"if there's no such thing as evil, then what are evil spirits then? and don't turn this into a debate on the existence of evil spirits, let's just assume they exist for this argument." -Porcupine

Anything by Fivepointer

"The Lake of Fire gets hotter and hotter with every passing sin. How long shall you ignore the warnings that God has given? The law is your accuser, it has no mercy. Turn and believe the gospel. But you say, “I can’t turn”. Well then ask that you may be given the ability to turn. You say, “I can’t believe”, ask that you might be given belief. Repent and believe the gospel and you shall be saved!"

Indeed, though the probability of you getting laid, even in quantum terms, is so small that it would be very rare in the multiverse.

That cracked me up at the time.

Icelander said:
Icelander sure is cynical, and negative. Seems to have lost faith in the human species. How low can you go? How depressing. What a fool.

But one guy agreed with me and felt like I do.

This was said about him.

" His material grew increasingly dark in later years, to the point where he was cheerleading (with only a trace of irony) for mass suicide and ecological disaster."

And in his own words.

" I sort of gave up on this whole human adventure a long time ago. I've divorced myself from it emotionally. I think the human race has squandered its gift and this country has squandered its promise. I think people in America sold out very cheaply, for sneakers and cheeseburgers. And I don't think it's fixable"


So if I have to have one person on my side I've got one of the best IMO. (George Carlin)




RIP George Carlin

not to pat myself on the back... because i didnt even realize the double meaning until two seconds after I posted it.

And, just to kick things off, here are a few choice quotes that I like:

If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to
Then He is not omnipotent.

If He is able, but not willing
Then He is malevolent.

If He is both able and willing
Then whence cometh evil?

If He is neither able nor willing
Then why call Him God?
--Epicurus

There are people who strictly deprive themselves of each and every eatable, drinkable, and smokable which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health. And health is all they get for it. How strange it is. It is like paying out your whole fortune for a cow that has gone dry.
--Mark Twain

The evolution from human to divine consciousness involves healing duality and its legacy of karma and disease at the cellular and atomic levels.

and making them see the light,
but rather because its opponents eventually die,
and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."

In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true within certain limits, to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are beliefs to be transcended.
Hidden from one's self is a covert set of beliefs that control one's thinking, one's actions, and one's feeling.
The covert set of hidden beliefs is the limiting set of beliefs to be transcended.

I feel life is desperate for a new vacation, or maybe some high powered vaccines and medications. Pharmaceuticals rule the nation, that's why I'm sitting here like a shriveled up piece of delectable bacon. What's next guys? And how do I make my hunger go away and stop craving. Just a fork full of flesh skin helps every one awaken. Now quit crying at the clouds like you're proud of your'e making, try and sit down and be happily endlessly soaking in a blow up Jacuzzi with a hot ass naked version of Lord Satan. (But don't allow any Faith in.)

The night was cold and crisp, luckily for me the broad I was with was hot and soft.  Suzy had breathed into my life only a few hours ago at a bar downtown, against the backdrop of the usual losers, she had stood out like a badger in a space suit. She had eyes that had seen a thousand romantic movies but had never seen the end.  Her lips were the color of open teenage veins.  She was all generous legs and don't tell daddy I'm out. 

What she wanted from me I didn't know.  I was just a two time loser in a second hand suit.  My life was becoming a raining journal novel, but at this point things didn't add up.  Just me, a blond headed beaded tail, and a mish mash of metaphors and similies that were making less and less sense by the minute.  My papa told the story of a world of sleepless nights, a world of what ifs, and a world of never was.

And she lay on the couch, I could tell she had been running from something.  I told her she could take my bed and she was out quicker than a police in a leotard back before the yankees.  I sat down in a chair that had seen so many drunken tragedies.  A bottle of whisky, a glass, and a nine millimeter on the table to my left.  My name is Clarence Paskebo, private Eye.  It was 1939, and although I didn't yet know it, things were about to get very, very heavy.
