- Utility does not belong to philosophy.
- It's value is indirect, through its effects upon the lives of those who study it.
- To a great extent, the uncertainty of philosophy is more apparent than real:
definite answers are placed in the sciences,
indefinite ones remain to form the residue which is called philosophy.
- The value of philosophy is in its very uncertainty.
- Offers possibilities that widen our thoughts and free them from the tyranny of custom.
- When you become used to the freedom and impartiality of philosophic thought
you will preserve those traits in the world of action and emotion.
