Reason - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

It is easier to be a lover than a husband for the simple reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day than to say pretty things from time to time.

Honoré de Balzac

You know I`ll be your life, your voice, your reason to be
My love, my heart is breathing for this
Moment, in time.

One Direction

The person who gives you unexplained happiness, will always be the reason for your unexplained sadness.

Zayn Malik

The religious reply to the moral sceptic`s question, `Why should I behave in such-and-such a way?` is simply `Because God requires it of you.` But this is merely a polite way of saying, `Because you`ll be punished if you don`t. [...] But a threat is never a logical justification for acting one way rather than another. If there exists a deity with the punitive vengefulness of the Judaeo-Christian variety, then it might be prudent to obey it, and thus avoid the flames of hell; but the threat of punishment is not a principled reason for obedience.

A. C. Grayling

If anyone bothered to examine what a Christian - or indeed any religious -morality demanded, he would be amazed by its diametric opposition to what is regarded as normal and desirable now, yet he would see - independently of whether it is the Christian or the contemporary morality which is `right` - the reason why the former is irrelevant to the latter.

A. C. Grayling

If love [...] is the reason for being moral, what relevance does the existence or non-existence of a deity have? Why can we not be prompted to the ethical life by our own charitable feelings? The existence of a god adds nothing to our moral situation, other than an invisible policeman who sees what we do (even in privacy and under cover of night), and a threat of post-mortem terrors if we misbehave. Such additions are hardly an enrichment of the moral life, since the underpinning they offer consists of fear and threats of punishment: which is exactly what, among other things, the moral life seeks to free us from.

A. C. Grayling

Uninformed strong opinions - and I particularly include religious ones, which for some reason get special treatment - are of course mere clusters of prejudices and no more appropriate than mine, yours or anyone else`s are on topics we don`t understand.

Derren Brown

You don`t have any more reason to think you have the true faith than any other believer does. Sure, you can quote chapter and verse - and so can people with a different interpretation of the faith. That`s the nature of chapter and verse; it can be used to support just about any interpretation you can come up with.

Greta Christina

When people are taught to let go of difficult questions and trust whatever religious authorities tell them? That it`s better to trust their feelings than their critical thinking skills? That evidence and reason are less important than faith? That "doubter" is a synonym for "sinner"? They become vulnerable to every cheater, chiseler, swindler, con artist, and late night infomercial huckster who` s lucky enough to cross their gullible paths.

Greta Christina

I`ve got a jet black heart
And there`s a hurricane underneath it
Trying to keep us apart
I write with a poison pen
But these chemicals moving between us
Are the reason to start again.

5 Seconds of Summer

The motives by which we act are inscribed in our intimate structure as mammals, as hunters, as social beings: reason illuminates these connections, it does not generate them. We are not, in the first place, reasoning beings. We may perhaps become so, more or less, in the second. In the first instance, we are driven by a thirst for life, by hunger, by the need to love, by the instinct to find our place in human society... The second instance does not even exist without the first. Reason arbitrates between instincts but uses the very same instincts as primary criteria in its arbitration.

Carlo Rovelli

Reason can never prove the existence of God.

Immanuel Kant

I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I think it`s important to seek out that reason - that`s how you learn.

Drew Barrymore

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they`re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Marilyn Monroe

The reason women don`t play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.

Phyllis Diller
