Classic Quotes (78)

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

I am one thing, my writings are another.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand

Joy is the goal of existence, and joy is not to be stumbled upon, but to be achieved, and the act of treason is to let its vision drown in the swamp of the moment’s torture.
~ Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Aristotle

Aristotle

ALL men by nature desire to know.
~ Aristotle, Metaphysics

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
~ William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Henri Bergson

Henri Bergson

We are seeking only the precise meaning that our consciousness gives to this word “exist,” and we find that, for a conscious being, to exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. Should the same be said of existence in general?
~ Henri Bergson
