    • There is nothing so absurd but some philosopher has said it.
      De Divinatione, by Cicero

    • One cannot conceive anything so strange and so implausible that it has not already been said by one philosopher or another.
      'Le Discours de la Methode,' 1637, by Rene Descartes

    • Leisure is the mother of philosophy.
    • There is only one thing a philosopher can be relied upon to do, and that is to contradict other philosophers.
    • Philosophy consists very largely of one philosopher arguing that all others are jackasses. He usually proves it, and I should add that he also usually proves that he is one himself.
    • I think we ought always to entertain our opinions with some measure of doubt. I shouldn't wish people dogmatically to believe any philosophy, not even mine.
    • This is patently absurd; but whoever wishes to become a philosopher must learn not to be frightened by absurdities.
