History teaches that wars begin when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.
The science, which teaches arts and handicraftsIs merely science for the gaining of a living;But the science which teaches deliverance from worldly existence,Is not that the true science?"nagarjuna
There is always in the healthy mind an obscure prompting that religion teaches us rather to dig than to climb; that if we could once understand the common clay of earth we should understand everything. Similarly, we have the sentiment that if we could destroy custom at a blow and see the stars as a child sees them, we should need no other apocalypse. This is the great truth which has always lain at the back of baby-worship, and which will support it to the end.
Judaism teaches us to be attached to holiness in time, to attached to sacred events, to learn how to consecrate sanctuaries that emerge from the magnificent stream of year. The Sabbaths are our great cathedrals; and our Holy of Holies is a shrine that neither the Romans nor the Germans were able to burn.abraham joshua heschel
What is any political campaign save a concerted effort to turn out a set of politicians who are admittedly bad and put in a set who are thought to be better. The former assumption, I believe is always sound; the latter is just as certainly false. For if experience teaches us anything at all it teaches us this: that a good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.h. l. mencken
You have shown what history teaches us that at defining moments like this one, the change we need doesn't come from Washington. Change comes to Washington.Barack Obama
History teaches us that a given view has been abandoned in favor of another by all men, or by all competent men, or perhaps by only the most vocal men; it does not teach us whether the change was sound or whether the rejected view deserved to be rejected. Only an impartial analysis of the view in question, an analysis that is not dazzled by the victory or stunned by the defeat of the adherents of the view concerned could teach us anything regarding the worth of the view and hence regarding the meaning of the historical change.leo strauss
Evolution teaches us the original purpose of language was to ritualize men's threats and curses, his spells to compel the gods; communication came later.
Most true it is, as a wise man teaches us, that 'doubt of anysort cannot be removed except by Action.'Onwhich ground, too, let him who gropes painfully in darkness or in uncertain light, and prays vehemently that the dawn may ripen into day, lay this other precept well to heart, which to me was of invaluable service: 'Do the Duty which lies nearest thee', which thou knowest to be a Duty! Thy second duty will already have become clearer.thomas carlyle
True science teaches, above all, to doubt and to be ignorant.Miguel de Unamuno
..art lies in the fine choice. The artist does not teach us to see facts: he teaches us to feel harmonies.arthur wesley dow
History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.abba eban
The manliness of Christian love, and the putting away from ourselves of all fear, because we are " perfected in love," is one of the highest lessons that the gospel teaches us, and one of the greatest things which the gospel gives us.
What worries me about religion is that it teaches people to be satisfied with not understanding.Richard Dawkins
Worldly wisdom teaches that it is better for reputation to fail conventionally than to succeed unconventionally.john maynard keynes
Experience teaches acceptance of the imperfect as life.anaïs nin
Good-humor only teaches charms to last, Still makes new conquests and maintains the past.Alexander Pope
[Malebranche] teaches that we see all things in God himself. This is certainly equivalent to explaining something unknown by something even more unknown. Moreover, according to him, we see not only all things in God, but God is also the sole activity therein, so that physical causes are so only apparently; they are merely occasional causes. ( Recherches de la vérité , Livre VI, seconde partie, chap. 3.) And so here we have essentially the pantheism of Spinoza who appears to have learned more from Malebranche than from Descartes.Arthur Schopenhauer
There is no greater fallacy than the belief that aims and purposes are one thing, while methods and tactics are another, This conception is a potent menace to social regeneration. All human experience teaches that methods and means cannot be separated from the ultimate aim. The means employed become, through individual habit and social practice, part and parcel of the final purpose; they influence it, modify it, and presently the aims and means become identical.
Grief teaches the steadiest minds to waver.
Alcmaeon was, says [J.] Wachtler, the first who attempted to explain the phenomenon of sound and our perception of it by reference to the structure of the ear itself. Empedocles to some extent follows or agrees with him. ...Empedocles teaches that hearing is caused by the impact of the air-wave against the cartilage which is suspended within the ear, oscillating as it is struck, like a gong.
The Bhagavata Purana teaches nine primary forms of bhakti, as explained by [[w:Prahlada|Prahlada as:(1) ?rava?a ("listening" to the scriptural stories of K???a and his companions), (2) k?rtana ("praising," usually refers to ecstatic group singing), (3) smara?a ("remembering" or fixing the mind on Vi??u), (4) p?da-sevana (rendering service), (5) arcana (worshiping an image), (6) vandana (paying homage ), (7) d?sya ( servitude ), (8) s?khya ( friendship ), and (9) ?tma-nivedana (complete surrender of the self ).
I tend to approach things from a physics framework. And physics teaches you to reason from first principles rather than by analogy.
Great is the power of habit . It teaches us to bear fatigue and to despise wounds and pain .
