As for freedom, it will soon cease to exist in any shape or form. Living will depend upon absolute obedience to a strict set of arrangements, which it will no longer be possible to transgress. The air traveler is not free. In the future, life's passengers will be even less so: they will travel through their lives fastened to their (corporate) seats.
~ Jean Baudrillard | (French sociologist, and philosopher. ) | 1929-2007 | Freedom
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
At the bottom of the heart of every human being, from earliest infancy until the tomb, there is something that goes on indomitably expecting, in the teeth of all experience of crimes committed, suffered, and witnessed, that good and not evil will be done
~ Simone Weil | ( French Philosopher ) | 1910-1943 | Goodness
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Barbarism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.
-: [ "Beyond the Black River" (1935) ]
~ Gaston Bachelard | (French Philosopher and Poet ) | 1884-1962 | Civilization

Beauty always promises, but never gives anything.
~ Simone Weil | ( French Philosopher ) | 1910-1943 | Beauty
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued.
~ Jean Rostand | (French biologist and philosopher. ) | 1894-1977 | Beauty
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
But sure there is need of other remedies than dreaming, a weak contention of art against nature.
~ Michel Eyquem de Montaigne | ( French philosopher and essayist. ) | 1533-1592 | Dreams
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
By liberty I mean the assurance that every man shall be protected in doing what he believes his duty against the influence of authority and majorities, custom and opinion.
-: [ The History of Freedom in Antiquity (28 February 1877) ]
~ Lord Acton | (English historian ) | 1834-1902 | Liberty
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Certain brief sentences are peerless in their ability to give one the feeling that nothing remains to be said.
~ Jean Rostand | (French biologist and philosopher. ) | 1894-1977 | Aphorisms
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Charity. To love human beings in so far as they are nothing. That is to love them as God does.
~ Simone Weil | ( French Philosopher ) | 1910-1943 | Charity
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Confidence in another person's virtue is no light evidence of your own.
~ Michel Eyquem de Montaigne | ( French philosopher and essayist. ) | 1533-1592 | Confidence
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Contact with men who wield power and authority still leaves an intangible sense of repulsion. It's very like being in close proximity to fecal matter, the fecal embodiment of something unmentionable, and you wonder what it is made of and when it acquired its historically sacred character.
~ Jean Baudrillard | (French sociologist, and philosopher. ) | 1929-2007 | Power
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Culture is an instrument wielded by teachers to manufacture teachers, who, in their turn, will manufacture still more teachers.
~ Simone Weil | ( French Philosopher ) | 1910-1943 | Culture
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Death, they say, acquits us of all obligations.
~ Michel Eyquem de Montaigne | ( French philosopher and essayist. ) | 1533-1592 | Death
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Deep down, no one really believes they have a right to live. But this death sentence generally stays tucked away, hidden beneath the difficulty of living. If that difficulty is removed from time to time, death is suddenly there, unintelligibly.
~ Jean Baudrillard | (French sociologist, and philosopher. ) | 1929-2007 | Life
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Deep down, the US, with its space, its technological refinement, its bluff good conscience, even in those spaces which it opens up for simulation, is the only remaining primitive society.
~ Jean Baudrillard | (French sociologist, and philosopher. ) | 1929-2007 | America
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Democracy is the menopause of Western society, the Grand Climacteric of the body social. Fascism is its middle-aged lust.
~ Jean Baudrillard | (French sociologist, and philosopher. ) | 1929-2007 | Democracy
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Depression moods lead, almost invariably, to accidents. But, when they occur, our mood changes again, since the accident shows we can draw the world in our wake, and that we still retain some degree of power even when our spirits are low. A series of accidents creates a positively light-hearted state, out of consideration for this strange power.
~ Jean Baudrillard | (French sociologist, and philosopher. ) | 1929-2007 | Depression
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?
~ Alexis de Tocqueville | ( French social philosopher. ) | 1805-1889 | Faith
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Distance is a great promoter of admiration!
~ Denis Diderot | ( French philosopher. ) | 1713-1784 | Admiration
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. My advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
~ Michel Eyquem de Montaigne | ( French philosopher and essayist. ) | 1533-1592 | Death
quotes Division : French Philosophers   
     
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
~ Gaston Bachelard | (French philosopher and poet. ) | 1884-1962 | Children
