23 Immanuel Kant Quotes by Dr. Frenzo

 

Immanuel Kant died this day, 212 years ago but his philosophy, his unique view of epistemology, ethics and reason continue to resonate with me to this day. I’ve read Plato, Aristotle and Descartes but none of them stirred me as much as Kant. I will be dedicating all my posts for the weekend to him. True immortality is that our thoughts, ideas and ideals outlive us and continue to shape the course of the world long after we are gone.

The courage to use your own understanding is what enlightenment is all about.

The People have a right to the Truth as they have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. – Frank Norris #Kant

If a man makes himself a worm he must not complain when he is trodden upon.  #Kant

People talk about the pursuit of happiness, they have it backwards. It’s really the happiness of pursuit. Chase your dream. Don’t say you can’t. Never give up. Think for yourself and follow your heart, therein lies real happiness. #Kant
