and a few quotes that have inspired us:
"This running against the walls of our cage is perfectly, absolutely hopeless. Ethics so far as it springs from the desire to say something about the ultimate meaning of life, the absolute good, the absolute valuable, can be no science. What it says does not add to our knowledge in any sense. But it is a document of a tendency in the human mind which I personally cannot help respecting deeply and I would not for my life ridicule it."
— Ludwig Wittgenstein, Lecture on Ethics
"If you’re not merely being polite (and you must tell me if that’s the case), but if it genuinely does interest you: may I invite you to dine with me tonight, and it will be my pleasure and, indeed, my privilege to tell you -- “my” story. Such as it is."
— Mr. Moustafa, from The Grand Bedapest Hotel
« Le cœur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît point. » ("The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know.")
— Blaise Pascal, Pensées
“You cannot use smoke to do philosophy. Its form excludes the content.”
— Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death.
“6.54 My propositions are elucidatory in this way: he who understands me finally recognizes them as senseless, when he has climbed out through them, on them, over them. (He must so to speak throw away the ladder, after he has climbed up on it.) He must transcend these propositions, and then he will see the world alright.”
— Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
