Quotes about space:

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.

Johann Gottlieb Fichte also said...

The kind of philosophy one chooses thus depends on the kind of person one is.

Do not be deceived by sophists and half philosophers; things do not appear to thee by means of any representatives. Of the thing that exists, and that can exist, thou art conscious immediately ; thou, thyself, art that of which thou art conscious. By a fundamental law of thy being thou art thus presented to thyself, and thrown out of thyself.

Reason does not exist for the sake of life, but life for the sake of reason. An existence which does not of itself satisfy reason and solve all her doubts, cannot be the true one.

Who am I? Subject and object in one — contemplating and contemplated, thinking and thought of. As both must I have become what I am.

Upon the progress of knowledge the whole progress of the human race is immediately dependent: he who retards that, hinders this also.

Of what I am, I know no more than that I am, but here no tie is necessary between subject and object. My own being is this tie, I am at once the subject knowing, and the object known of; and this reflection or return of the knowledge on itself is what I designate by the term I, if I have any determinate meaning.
