Sense Quotes

In the strict scientific sense we all feed on death - even vegetarians

Mr. Spock

The same principles which at first view lead to skepticism, pursued to a certain point, bring men back to common sense.

George Berkeley

Dogmatism and skepticism are both, in a sense, absolute philosophies; one is certain of knowing, the other of not knowing. What philosophy should dissipate is certainty, whether of knowledge or ignorance.

Bertrand Russell

The ecologization of politics requires us to acknowledge the priority of human values and makes ecology part of education at an early age, molding a new, modern approach to nature and, at the same time, giving back to man a sense of being part of nature. No moral improvement of society is possible without that

Mikhail Gorbachev

The poor on the borderline of starvation live purposeful lives. To be engaged in a desperate struggle for food and shelter is to be wholly free from a sense of futility.

Abby Smith

Remembrance and reflection how allied. What thin partitions divides sense from thought.

Alexander Pope

It is not long since man thought of himself as the center of the universe, thought even of the Sun - the very source of all our life - as a light by day revolving about the Earth. As our new understanding has come - through science - science also has brought us many other new and wonderful discoveries, and the new knowledge of what we are has been overlooked by many of us in our eagerness for the new knowledge of what we can do. We have become as proud over what we can do as ever our ancestors could have been over themselves as the center of the universe. We deeply need the humility to know ourselves as the dependent members of a great community of life, and this can indeed be one of the spiritual benefits of a wilderness experience. Without the gagets, the inventions, the contrivances whereby men have seemed to establish among themselves an independence of nature, without these distractions, to know the wilderness is to know a profound humility, to recognize oneĆ­s littleness, to sense dependence and interdependence, indebtedness, and responsibility. Perhaps, indeed, this is the distinctive ministration of wilderness to modern man, the characteristic effect of an area which we most deeply need to provide for in our preservation programs.

Howard Zahniser

An idea, in the highest sense of that word, cannot be conveyed but by a symbol.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Poetry is certainly something more than good sense, but it must be good sense at all events; just as a palace is more than a house, but it must be a house, at least.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

If the administrative phase is conducted in two different courts and it leads to two different verdicts, then prudence and judicial economy would tell us that these proceedings should be consolidated into one court. It only makes sense.

Robert Hager

I could sense all week that they were ready. They were like a Kentucky thoroughbred. They knew what was there.

Dave Hoover

Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.

General George S. Patton

Nothing may be truly said to be a miracle except in the profound sense that everything is a miracle.

Paramahansa Yogananda

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.

Helen Keller

Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.
