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: “Some people’s taste is to an educated taste as is the visual impression received by a purblind eye to that of a normal eye. Where a normal eye will see something clearly articulated, a weak eye will see a blurred patch of colour.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “If the will did not exist, neither would there be that centre of the world, which we call the I.”
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: “The fact that we cannot write down all the digits of pi is not a human shortcoming, as mathematicians sometimes think.”
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: “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: “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: “Philosophy limits the disputable sphere of natural science.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “What a curious attitude scientists have: “We still don’t know that; but it is knowable and it is only a matter of time before we get to know it!”’ As if that went without saying.”
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: “Superstition is the belief in the causal nexus.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “It’s not how the world is, but that it is, that is cause for astonishment.”
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: “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: “But doesn’t it come out here that knowledge is related to a decision?”
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: “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: “A particular method of symbolizing may be unimportant, but it is always important that this is a possible method of symbolizing. And this happens as a rule in philosophy: The single thing proves over and over again to be unimportant, but the possibility of every single thing reveals something about the nature of the world.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The solution of logical problems must be neat for they set the standard of neatness.”
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: “In practice, language is always more or less vague, so that what we assert is never quite precise.”
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: “But all propositions of logic say the same thing. That is, nothing.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Humor is not a mood but a way of looking at the world. It is correct to say that humor was stamped out in Nazi Germany, but that does not mean that people were not in good spirits, or anything of that sort, but something much deeper and more important.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Talent is a spring from which fresh water is constantly flowing. But this spring loses its value if it is not used in the right way.”
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: “There is no such thing as an isolated proposition. For what I call a “proposition” is a position in the game of language.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “Self-evidence, of which Russell has said so much, can only be discarded in logic by language itself preventing every logical mistake. That logic is a priori consists in the fact that we cannot think illogically.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “The same operation which makes “q” from “p”, makes “r” from “q”, and so on. This can only be expressed by the fact that “p”, “q”, “r”, etc., are variables which give general expression to certain formal relations.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “A picture of a complete apple tree, however accurate, is in a certain sense much less like the tree itself than is a little daisy.”
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: “I realize then that the disappearance of a culture does not signify the disappearance of human value, but simply of certain means of expressing this value, yet the fact remains that I have no sympathy for the current European civilization and do not understand its goals, if it has any. So I am really writing for friends who are scattered throughout the corners of the globe.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein Quote: “People nowadays think that scientists exist to instruct them, poets, musicians, etc. to give them pleasure. The idea that these have something to teach them – that does not occur to them.”
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’.”
