Every one of us has - at one time or another - wondered about what it means to be human. Do we have a soul? What is the mind's eye? Where do dreams come from; where do they go? The greatest thinkers of our time have considered these questions and more; after much time mulling things over they have summed up the human condition in short - but incredibly deep - quotations. For this book, the authors chose over one hundred of their favorite philosophical quotes from all walks of life. Some are well-known, some not so - and some will surprise you with their inclusion. Yet every single quote in this book is included for a reason. With contributions from the literary, film and gaming worlds to history's most prominent thinkers, this is the perfect addition to any bookshelf.Show more
