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 James William Fulbright on action, dissent, exploring, fear, learning, possibility, thinking, and world

We must dare to think 'unthinkable' thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about 'unthinkable things' because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on life, mind, spirit, thinking, and thought

A sense sublime Of something far more deeply interfused, Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, And the round ocean and the living air And the blue sky, and in the mind of man,- A motion and a spirit, that impels All thinking things, all objects of all thought, And rolls through all things.

William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)
