Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Religion as madness is a madness springing from irreligiousness.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A good guide will take you through the more important streets more often than he takes you down side streets; a bad guide will do the opposite. In philosophy I’m a rather bad guide.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “This book will perhaps only be understood by those who have themselves already thought the thoughts which are expressed in it-or similar thoughts. It is therefore not a text-book. Its object would be attained if it afforded pleasure to one who read it with understanding.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Human beings have a physical need to tell themselves when at work: “Let’s have done with it now,” and it’s having constantly to go on thinking in the face of this need when philosophizing that makes this work so strenuous.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Any serious philosophy can be described entirely through jokes.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “This sort of thing has got to be stopped. Bad philosophers are like slum landlords. It’s my job to put them out of business.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “We find certains things about seeing puzzling, because we do not find the whole business of seeing puzzling enough.”
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: “Language is a labyrinth of paths. You approach from one side and know your way about; you approach the same place from another side and no longer know your way about.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Most of the propositions and questions to be found in philosophical works are not false but nonsensical.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The so-called law of induction cannot possibly be a law of logic, since it is obviously a proposition with a sense. – Nor, therefore, can it be an a priori law.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Reading the Socratic dialogues one has the feeling: what a frightful waste of time! What’s the point of these arguments that prove nothing and clarify nothing?”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Philosophers often behave like little children who scribble some marks on a piece of paper at random and then ask the grown-up “What’s that?” – It happened like this: the grown-up had drawn pictures for the child several times and said: this is a man, this is a house, etc. And then the child makes some marks too and asks: what’s this then?”
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: “Roughly speaking: to say of two things that they are identical is nonsense, and to say of one thing that it is identical with itself is to say nothing.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “So in the end, when one is doing philosophy, one gets to the point where one would like just to emit an inarticulate sound.”
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: “If someone does not believe in fairies, he does not need to teach his children ‘There are no fairies’; he can omit to teach them the word ‘fairy’.”
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: “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.”
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: “Waltzing is not the same thing as dancing, since the rhumba is also a dance but it is not a waltz. It therefore follows that one can waltz without dancing the waltz.”
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: “Elementary propositions consist of names.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “White must be the lightest color in a picture.”
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: “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: “Is it even always an advantage to replace an indistinct picture by a sharp one? Isn’t the indistinct one often what we need?”
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: “2.223 In order to discover whether the picture is true or false we must compare it with reality. 2.224 It cannot be discovered from the picture alone whether it is true or false. 2.225 There is no picture which is a priori true.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Propositions show what they say: tautologies and contradictions show that they say nothing.”
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: “In practice, language is always more or less vague, so that what we assert is never quite precise.”
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: “The philosopher’s treatment of a question is like the treatment of an illness.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Another alternative would have been to give you what’s called a popular-scientific lecture, that is a lecture intended to make you believe that you understand a thing which actually you don’t understand, and to gratify what I believe to be on of the lowest desires of modern people, namely the superficial curiosity about the latest discoveries of science.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Science and industry, and their progress, might turn out to be the most enduring thing in the modern world. Perhaps any speculation about a coming collapse of science and industry is, for the present and for a long time to come, nothing but a dream; perhaps science and industry, having caused infinite misery in the process, will unite the world – I mean condense it into a single unit, though one in which peace is the last thing that will find a home.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The silent adjustments to understand colloquial language are enormously complicated.”
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: “It is obvious that an imagined world, however different it may be from the real one, must have something – a form – in common with it.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A propositional sign, applied and thought out, is a thought. A thought is a proposition with a sense.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The fact that we cannot write down all the digits of pi is not a human shortcoming, as mathematicians sometimes think.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Philosophy limits the disputable sphere of natural science.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The essential business of language is to assert or deny facts. Given.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “There is such a thing as the impression of luminosity.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “We must plow through the whole of language.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “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: “Just be indipendent of the external world, so you don’t have to fear for what’s in it.”
