Quotes on metaphysics


“In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.”
- Terry Pratchett
“If it turns out that there is a God...the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever.”
― Woody Allen
“belief is the death of intelligence.”
― Robert Anton Wilson
“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other - above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”
― Albert Einstein
“Inevitably anyone with an independent mind must become 'one who resists or opposes authority or established conventions': a rebel. If enough people come to agree with, and follow, the Rebel, we now have a Devil. Until, of course, still more people agree. And then, finally, we have --- Greatness.”
― Aleister Crowley
“I suppose therefore that all things I see are illusions; I believe that nothing has ever existed of everything my lying memory tells me. I think I have no senses. I believe that body, shape, extension, motion, location are functions. What is there then that can be taken as true? Perhaps only this one thing, that nothing at all is certain.”
― RenĂ© Descartes
“...reality is always plural and mutable.”
― Robert Anton Wilson
“The world is, of course, nothing but our conception of it.”
― Anton Chekhov
“Why are there beings at all, instead of Nothing?”
― Martin Heidegger

― Nikola Telsa
