History is philosophy from examples.
View quotes by Dionysius Of Halicarnassus

Everything you've learned in school as 'obvious' becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There's not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.
View quotes by R Buckminster Fuller

Every man serves a useful purpose: A miser, for example, makes a wonderful ancestor.

The bird alighteth not on the spread net when it beholds another bird in the snare. Take warning by the misfortunes of others, that others may not take example from you.
View quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

A good example is far better than a good precept.
View quotes by Dwight Moody

View quotes by Brendan Fraser

A lot of folks are still demanding more evidence before they actually consider Iraq a threat. For example, France wants more evidence. And you know I'm thinking, the last time France wanted more evidence they rolled right through Paris with the German flag.
View quotes by David Letterman

However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.
View quotes by Eric Hoffer

Dusting is a good example of the futility of trying to put things right. As soon as you dust, the fact of your next dusting has already been established.
