A Quote by Ludwig Boltzmann on confidence, impossibility, kindness, laws, lies, logic, philosophy, thought, and time

The most ordinary things are to philosophy a source of insoluble puzzles. With infinite ingenuity it constructs a concept of space or time and then finds it absolutely impossible that there be objects in this space or that processes occur during this time . . . the source of this kind of logic lies in excessive confidence in the so-called laws of thought.

Ludwig Boltzmann (1844 - 1906)
