A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on philosophy, common sense, and intellectualism

When the philosopher's argument becomes tedious, complicated, and opaque, it is usually a sign that he is attempting to prove as true to the intellect what is plainly false to common sense. But men of intellect will believe anything - if it appeals to their ego, their vanity, their sense of self-importance.

A Quote by Heraklietos of Ephesos on intelligence, common sense, truth, world, and road

Whosoever wishes to know about the world must learn about it in its particular details.
Knowledge is not intelligence.
In searching for the truth be ready for the unexpected.
Change alone is unchanging.
The same road goes both up and down.
The beginning of a circle is also its end.
Not I, but the world says it: all is one.
And yet everything comes in season.  

Heraclitus (c.540 - c.475 BC)

A Quote by Werner Erhard on problems, communities, societies, resolved, brought together, together, common sense, visionary, realization, function, live, vision, great leader, level, following, great, leader, era, and ourselves

The problems we have now in communities and societies are going to be resolved only when we are brought together by a common sense that each of us is a visionary.  Each of us must come to the realization that we can function and live at the level of vision rather than following some great leader's vision.  Instead of looking for a great leader, we are in an era where each of us needs to find the great leader in ourselves.

Werner Erhard
