Quotes about reason:


Truth prevails only to the extent that we successfully assert it. The victory of reason can only be the victory of rational people.





Have courage to use your own reason!





There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.





Good sense is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for every one thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess. And in this it is not likely that all are mistaken: the conviction is rather to be held as testifying that the power of judging aright and of distinguishing truth from error, which is properly what is called good sense or reason, is by nature equal in all men; and that the diversity of our opinions, consequently, does not arise from some being endowed with a larger share of reason than others, but solely from this, that we conduct our thoughts along different ways, and do not fix our attention on the same objects. For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it.





The weakness of human reason appears more evidently in those who know it not, than in those who know it.





Two extremes: to exclude reason, to admit reason only.

With most people the heart grows old with the body.





What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man.

Blaise Pascal also said...

Wisdom leads us back to childhood.





Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature, but he is a thinking reed.





All good maxims are in the world. We only need to apply them.





The world is generally so restless, that men scarcely ever think of the present time, and the instant they are now actually living, but of those in which they are to live. So that we are always in a disposition to live in future, but never to live now.





All our dignity consists, then, in thought. By it we must elevate ourselves, and not by space and time which we cannot fill.
Let us endeavour then to think well; this is the principle of morality.
