Text Quotes
It is doubtful whether our present system of popular education does not retard independent or self thinking as much as it promotes it. All genuine education is self-education. It will incite the individual to think for himself, by rethinking what the race’s great thinkers have already thought for him, thus enabling him to go ahead under his own mental steam  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) The more serious poetry of the race has a philosophical structure of thought. It contains beliefs and conceptions in regard to the nature of man and the universe, God and the soul, fate and providence, suffering, evil and destiny. Great poetry always has, like the higher religion, a metaphysical content. It deals with the same August issues, experiences and conceptions as metaphysics or first philosophy  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) A system of philosophy, or metaphysics, is a union of a world view and a life view in one harmonious, complete, integral conception. In so far as any man strives to attain, by rational inquiry, a consistent and comprehensive view of life and reality, he is a metaphysician  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) The state is the nursing mother of human culture  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) Life appears in a vast variety and innumerable succession of individual forms, since the most salient character of the universe is just that it ceaselessly gives birth to living individuals  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) God is a wider consciousness than we are, a pure intelligence, spiritual life and actuality. He is neither one nor many, neither man nor spirit. Such predicates belong only to finite beings  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) Skepticism literally means a thoughtful inquiry, the looking at a problem in a disinterested spirit, the surveying of a question from many sides. In this sense it is the very essence of philosophy and science  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes) Might does not make right, but right demands that those who hold to it should defend it with all their might  (Joseph Alexander Leighton Quotes)
