Otherwise - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

If determinism is true, the future is set - and this includes all our future states of mind and our subsequent behavior. And to the extent that the law of cause and effect is subject to indeterminism - quantum or otherwise - we can take no credit for what happens. There is no combination of these truths that seems compatible with the popular notion of free will.

Sam Harris

This is certain, that a man that studieth revenge keeps his wounds green, which otherwise would heal and do well.

Francis Bacon

Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstances: It was somebody`s name, or he happened to be there at the time, or, it was so then, and another day it would have been otherwise. Strong men believe in cause and effect.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Compassion is not weakness, [...] only those without compassion think otherwise.

Laurell K. Hamilton

Adversity is like a strong wind. I don`t mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go. It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.

Arthur Golden

Life must be rich and full of loving - it`s no good otherwise, no good at all, for anyone.

Jack Kerouac

The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.

Margaret Atwood

Beware of missing chances; otherwise it may be altogether too late some day.

Ferenc Liszt

If I ask for something and you give it, do it without a speech; otherwise what's the point of giving.

Magda Szabó

What is true is not to be decided by votes; otherwise, we could never come to any truth ever. People would vote for what is comfortable - and lies are very comfortable because you don’t have to do anything about them, you just have to believe... Truth needs great effort, discovery, risk, and to walk alone on a path which nobody has traveled before.

Osho

I cannot conceive of a God who rewards and punishes his creatures, or has a will of the type of which we are conscious in ourselves. An individual who should survive his physical death is also beyond my comprehension, nor do I wish it otherwise; such notions are for the fears or absurd egoism of feeble souls.

Albert Einstein
