View quotes by Richard Feynman

There are two sides to every question. (In Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers)
View quotes by Protagoras

The profoundest thoughts of the philosophers have something trickle about them. A lot disappears in order for something to suddenly appear in the palm of the hand.
View quotes by Elias Canetti

I think a lot of philosophers get so absorbed and distracted from the real matters of the world that they get lost in irrelevant sub-details.
View quotes by Pam Gems

View quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
