A Quote by Socrates on conflict, desires, life, men, power, and truth

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on aim, doubt, emptiness, evil, greatness, happiness, men, philosophy, and thinking

Philosophy takes as her aim the state of happiness...she shows us what are real and what are only apparent evils. She strips men's minds of empty thinking, bestows a greatness that is solid and administers a check to greatness where it is puffed up and all an empty show; she sees that we are left no doubt about the difference between what is great and what is bloated.

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on action, beginning, belief, discovery, earth, ignorance, injustice, men, misery, protestantism, thought, violence, women, work, and world

Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. 'Give me a place to stand,' said Archimedes, 'and I will move the world.' These men moved the world, and so can we all.

A Quote by René Descartes on authors, books, conversation, good, men, past, reading, and study

The reading of all good books is indeed like a conversation with the noblest men of past centuries who were the authors of them, nay a carefully studied conversation, in which they reveal to us none but the best of their thoughts.
