Existence Quotes

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

Albert Camus

Man is the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve.

Erich Fromm

We don't exist unless we are deeply and sensually in touch with that which can be touched but not known.

D.H. Lawrence

Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence.

St. Basil

Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.

Orison Swett Marden

The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence.

Norman Vincent Peale

I write songs and I sing them from the deepest part of my existence and I hope they connect with the deepest part of yours.

Ben Harper

If you place with God, you lose nothing, even if it turns out that God does not exist. But if you place it against God, and you are wrong and God does exist, you lose everything."

Peter Kreeft

Osho

Why you exist, says Nietzsche with Sren Kierkegaard, nobody in the world can tell you in advance; but since you do exist, try to give your existence a meaning by setting up for yourself as lofty and noble a goal as you can.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

People like Thomas Aquinas would say we can't talk about God as a creator because we can only have in our heads the idea of a human creator and that can't apply to God. We can't even say that God exists because our notion of existence is too limited to apply to God. People were instructed to think about this in those terms.

Karen Armstrong

Incomprehensible and immutable is the love wherewith God loves. He did not begin to love us only on the day we were reconciled to Him by the blood of His Son; He loved us before the world was made, that we too might become His sons together with His Only-begotten Son, long before we had any existence....

St. Augustine of Hippo

Wystan Hugh Auden

Thought is not essential to existence nor its cause, but it is an instrument for becoming; I become what I see in myself. All that thought suggests to me, I can do; all that thought reveals in me, I can become. This should be man's unshakable faith in himself, because God dwells in him.

Sri Aurobindo
