Philosophy Quotes

Philosophy originated from a Greek word that implies “love for wisdom”. Philosophy deals with life in general or existential issues, religious questions or things connected to knowledge, values and reasons. In ancient times wise men went up the hill to ponder about these questions and wrote books. These books contain priceless pearls of wisdom. Philosophical discourses make us realize how insignificant our individual problems really are when we compare with the greater universe. Quotes on philosophy that are listed below will make you understand a little more about this subject.
