Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth 
by calling imagination to the help of reason.

Do not believe in anything 
simply because you have heard it. 
Do not believe in anything 
simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. 
Do not believe in anything 
simply because it is found written in your religious books. 
Do not believe in anything 
merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. 
Do not believe in traditions 
because they have been handed down for many generations. 
But after observation and analysis, 
when you find that anything agrees with reason 
and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, 
then accept it and live up to it.

We can be knowledgeable with other men's knowledge, 
but we cannot be wise with other men's wisdom.

Good for the body is the work of the body, 
and good for the soul is the work of the soul, 
and good for either is the work of the other.

Out of the quarrel with others 
we make rhetoric; 
out of the quarrel with ourselves 
we make poetry.

Physics is mathematical 
not because we know so much 
about the physical world, 
but because we know so little; 
it is only its mathematical properties 
that we can discover.

Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, 
but upon error also.

Reading without reflecting 
is like 
eating without digesting.

I don't paint things. 
I only paint 
the difference 
between things.

An experiment is a question which science poses to Nature, 
and a measurement is the recording of Nature's answer.

Scientific principles and laws do not lie on the surface of nature. 
They are hidden, 
and must be wrested from nature 
by an active and elaborate technique of inquiry.

To teach how to live with uncertainty, 
yet without being paralysed by hesitation, 
is perhaps the chief thing that philosophy can do.
