Reason - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they`re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Marilyn Monroe

The reason women don`t play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.

Phyllis Diller

Nearly all men are slaves for the same reason that the Spartans assigned for the servitude of the Persians - lack of power to pronounce the syllable, No. To be able to utter that word and live alone, are the only two means to preserve one`s freedom and one`s character.

Nicolas Chamfort

Ignorance is a virus. Once it starts spreading, it can only be cured by reason. For the sake of humanity, we must be that cure.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Wanting to believe something is not any reason at all to believe it. If anything, it`s a reason to question it.

Penn Jillette

My mom and dad (and most moms and dads) said that I would never understand how much they loved me until I had my own children. (...) It`s the love you don`t choose, the animal love that gives the reason to live.

Penn Jillette

Honest people are a refuge: You know they mean what they say; you know they will not say one thing to your face and another behind your back; you know they will tell you when they think you have failed - and for this reason their praise cannot be mistaken for mere flattery.

Sam Harris

We can`t survive alone, but even if we could, we wouldn`t want to. Without a faction we have no purpose and no reason to live.

Veronica Roth

A lot of times when people make accusations like that about other people - "Oh, he can't really be doing this for principled reasons, he must have some corrupt, nefarious reason" - they're saying a lot more about themselves than they are the target of their accusations, because those people, the ones who make that accusation, they themselves never act for any reason other than corrupt reasons, so they assume that everybody else is plagued by the same disease of soullessness as they are, and so that's the assumption.

Glenn Greenwald

Blaise Pascal

Even the most vaunted experts are susceptible to wishful thinking and can be blinded to a truth by a conviction that is supported more by emotional attachment than reason.

Daniel Dennett

Darwin`s idea of evolution by natural selection is, in my opinion, the single best idea that anybody has ever had, because in a single bold stroke it unites meaning with matter, two aspects of reality that appear to be worlds apart. On one side, we have the world of our minds and their meanings, our goals, our hopes, and our yearnings, and that most honored - and hackneyed - of all philosophical topics, the Meaning of Life. On the other side, we have galaxies ceaselessly wheeling, planets falling pointlessly into their orbits, lifeless chemical mechanisms doing what physics ordains, all without purpose or reason. Then Darwin comes along and shows us how the former arises from the latter, creating meaning as it goes, a bubble-up vision of the birth of importance to overthrow the trickle-down vision of tradition.

Daniel Dennett

Love doesn`t need reason. It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.

Deepak Chopra
