John Jay Chapman
Philosophy, like medicine, has plenty of drugs, few good remedies, and hardly any specific cures.
Here, the broader issues are already familiar, and discussion has focused at a more sophisticated and detailed level. Within the philosophy of mind, the problem of consciousness is no big news.
If I had to define my philosophy, it would be about exploration, a journey, a story-telling.
Philosophy begins in wonder. And, at the end, when philosophic thought has done its best, the wonder remains.
Alfred North Whitehead

Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.
My philosophy is: Life is hard, but God is good. Try not to confuse the two.
Anne F. Beiler
What is the meaning of the togetherness of the perceiving mind, in that peculiar modification of perceiving which makes it perceive not a star but a tree, and the tree itself, is a problem for philosophy.
My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me.
I always had a philosophy which I got from my father. He used to say, 'Listen. God gave to you the gift to play football. This is your gift from God. If you take care of your health, if you are in good shape all the time, with your gift from God no one will stop you, but you must be prepared.'
There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.
I have a new philosophy. I'm only going to dread one day at a time.

William Morris Hunt

I have a Ph.D. in philosophy and sports science. At 14, I went through this really tough Soviet training system. A lot of my roommates got psychologically broken or physically injured.

My mother always gives the best advice. When I left Puerto Rico to pursue my dreams, she always supported me and said to me, 'I'm never going to cut your wings, so don't let anyone else do that to you.' That has been my philosophy through life. I want to share that valuable lesson with my little girl someday.
It is an acknowledged truth in philosophy that a just theory will always be confirmed by experiment.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
