The Philosopher

"The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are.

The Thinker:

It is in this that his liberty consists - in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record."

Henri Frederic Amiel, 1821-1881
Swiss Philosopher, Poet, Critic
