common sense

A Quote by Austin Farrar on charity, common sense, death, fanaticism, kindness, knowledge, life, peace, power, religion, virtue, and wisdom

'Knowledge, without common sense,' says Lee, is 'folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death.' But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with charity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.

A Quote by Audrey Hepburn on ballet, common sense, good, health, instinct, laws, life, logic, motherhood, nature, and theory

My life isn't theories and formulas. It's part instinct, part common sense. Logic is as good a word as any, and I've absorbed what logic I have from everything and everyone . . . from my mother, from training as a ballet dancer, from magazine, from the laws of life and health and nature.

Audrey Hepburn (1929 - 1993)

A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on common sense, creativity, ideas, originality, thought, words, and work

Now in creative thought common sense is a bad master. Its sole criterion for judgement is that the new ideas shall look like the old ones. In other words it can only work by suppressing originality.
