Empty Quotes

The mystical trend of our time, which shows itself particularly in the rampant growth of the so-called Theosophy and Spiritualism, is for me no more than a symptom of weakness and confusion. Since our inner experiences consist of reproductions, and combinations of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body seem to me to be empty and devoid of meaning.

Albert Einstein

I made a mental note to watch which bottle became empty soonest, sometimes a more telling evaluation system than any other.

Gerald Asher

There is no God, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven, no hell. It is all a Dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And You are but a Thought a vagrant Thought, a useless Thought, a homeless Thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Smoking dope and hanging up Che's picture is no more a commitment than drinking milk and collecting postage stamps. A revolution in consciousness is an empty high without a revolution in the distribution of power. We are not interested in the greening of Amerika except for the grass that will cover its grave.

Abbie Hoffman

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend

Bruce Lee

I can spot empty flattery and know exactly where I stand. In the end it's really only my own approval or disapproval that means anything.

Agnetha Faltskog

An empty belly is the best cook

Estonian Proverb

It has been said that our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, but only empties today of its strength.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I wondered whether the scientific modern brain could not get to the stage of realising that Space is not an empty homogeneous medium, but full of intricate differences, intelligible and real, though not with our common reality.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

Time is the most precious gift in our possession, for it is the most irrevocable. This is what makes it so disturbing to look back upon the time which we have lost. Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavor, enjoyment, and suffering. Time lost is time not filled, time left empty.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

You can't build a peaceful world on empty stomachs and human misery.

Norman Ernest Borlaug

Robert Seymour Bridges

Let's dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues. Let's dance to the song they're playin' on the radio. Let's sway while colour lights up your face. Let's swa , sway through the crowd to an empty space.

David Robert Jones

Do not all charms fly at the mere touch of cold philosophy? There was an awful rainbow once in heaven: we know her woof, her texture; she is given in the dull catalogue of common things. Philosophy will clip an angel's wings, conquer all mysteries by rule and line, empty the haunted air, and gnome mine unweave a rainbow.

John Keats

Philosophy! Empty thinking by ignorant conceited men who think they can digest without eating!

Iris Murdoch
