Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Transparency painted in a picture produces its effect in a different way than opaqueness.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Concerning that which cannot be talked about, we should not say anything.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “You must always be puzzled by mental illness. The thing I would dread most, if I became mentally ill, would be your adopting a common sense attitude; that you could take it for granted that I was deluded.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Nothing is more important for teaching us to understand the concepts we have than to construct fictitious ones.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A right-hand glove could be put on the left hand if it could be turned round in four-dimensional space.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Most of the propositions and questions to be found in philosophical works are not false but nonsensical.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Ideas too sometimes fall from the tree before they are ripe.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Es ist offenbar, dass auch eine von der wirklichen noch so verschieden gedachte Welt Etwas – eine Form – mit der wirklichen gemein haben muss.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The World and Life are one.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “White must be the lightest color in a picture.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “We never arrive at fundamental propositions in the course of our investigation; we get to the boundary of language which stops us from asking further questions. We don’t get to the bottom of things, but reach a point where we can go no further, where we cannot ask further questions.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Not every religion has to have St. Augustine’s attitude to sex. Why even in our culture marriages are celebrated in a church, everyone present knows what is going to happen that night, but that doesn’t prevent it being a religious ceremony.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Perhaps you regard this thinking about myself as a waste of time – but how can I be a logician before I’m a human being! Far the most important thing is to settle accounts with myself!”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The totality of facts determines both what is the case, and also all that is not the case.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Religion as madness is a madness springing from irreligiousness.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “It is one of the chief skills of the philosopher not to occupy himself with questions which do not concern him.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The wish precedes the event, the will accompanies it.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Talent is a spring from which fresh water always flows.- But this spring is worthless if no good use is made of it.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “I really do think with my pen, because my head often knows nothing about what my hand is writing.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Understand or die.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “It’s only by thinking even more crazily than philosophers do that you can solve their problems.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Everything ritualistic must be strictly avoided, because it immediately turns rotten. Of course a kiss is a ritual too and it isn’t rotten, but ritual is permissible only to the extent that it is as genuine as a kiss.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Nothing in the visual field allows you to infer that it is seen by an eye.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A propositional sign, applied and thought out, is a thought. A thought is a proposition with a sense.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “We feel that even if all possible scientific questions be answered, the problems of life have still not been touched at all. Of course there is then no question left, and just this is the answer.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Roughly speaking: objects are colourless.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “What is the proof that I know something? Most certainly not my saying I know it.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “I am showing my pupils details of an immense landscape which they cannot possibly know their way around.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Imagine a person whose memory could not retain what the word ‘pain’ meant – so that he constantly called different things by that name – but nevertheless used the word in a way fitting in with the usual symptoms and presuppositions of ‘pain’ – in short he uses it as we all do. Here I should like to say: a wheel that can be turned though nothing else moves with it, is not part of the mechanism.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The book deals with the problems of philosophy and shows, as I believe, that the method of formulating these problems rests on the misunderstanding of the logic of our language.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “If you have a room which you do not want certain people to get into, put a lock on it for which they do not have the key. But there is no point in talking to them about it, unless of course you want them to admire the room from outside! The honorable thing to do is put a lock on the door which will be noticed only by those who can open it, not by the rest.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Elementary propositions consist of names.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “It seems to me that, in every culture, I come across a chapter headed ‘Wisdom.’ And then I know exactly what is going to follow: ‘Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.’”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “How could human behaviour be described? Surely only by showing the actions of a variety of humans, as they are all mixed up together. Not what one man is doing now, but the whole hurly-burly, is the background against which we see an action, and it determines our judgment, our concepts, and our reactions.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “We just do not see how very specialized the use of “I know” is.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “I am still at Trattenbach, surrounded, as ever, by odiousness and baseness. I know that human beings on the average are not worth much anywhere, but here they are much more good-for-nothing and irresponsible than elsewhere.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A proposition is completely logically analyzed if its grammar is made completely clear: no matter what idiom it may be written or expressed in...”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “You might say that certain words are only pegs to hang intonations on.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “In philosophy it is always good to put a question instead of an answer to a question. For an answer to the philosophical question may easily be unfair; disposing of it by means of another question is not.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “One age misunderstands another; and a petty age misunderstands all the others in its own ugly way.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “There is such a thing as the impression of luminosity.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Suppose we think while we talk or write – I mean, as we normally do – we shall not in general say that we think quicker than we talk, but the thought seems not to be separate from the expression.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “We must plow through the whole of language.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Philosophers are often like little children, who first scribble random lines on a piece of paper with their pencils, and now ask an adult ‘What is that?”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A picture whose pictorial form is logical form is called a logical picture.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “There are two godheads: the world and my independent I. I am either happy or unhappy, that is all. It can be said: good or evil do not exist. A man who is happy must have no fear. Not even in the face of death. Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The essential business of language is to assert or deny facts. Given.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Put a man in the wrong atmosphere and nothing will function as it should. He will seem unhealthy in every part. Put him back into his proper element and everything will blossom and look healthy. But if he is not in his right element, what then? Well, then he just has to make the best of appearing before the world as a cripple.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “It is so characteristic, that just when the mechanics of reproduction are so vastly improved, there are fewer and fewer people who know how the music should be played.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Our civilization is characterized by the word progress. Progress is its form rather than making progress being one of its features. Typically it constructs. It is occupied with building an ever more complicated structure. And even clarity is sought only as a means to this end, not as an end in itself. For me on the contrary clarity, perspicuity are valuable in themselves.”
