Famous quotes containing the word berkeley:

    Edith: This complete loveliness will fade. And we shall forget what it was like.
    Edward: Edith, don’t.
    Edith: Oh, it’s bound to. Just a few years and the gilt wears off the gingerbread.
    Edward: Darling, answer me one thing truthfully. Have you ever seen gingerbread with gilt on it?
    Edith: [laughing] Fool!
    Edward: Then the whole argument is disposed of.
    —Reginald Berkeley (1890 N1935)

    It seems, Euphranor..., that there is nothing so singularly absurd as we are apt to think, in the belief of mysteries; and that a man need not renounce his reason to maintain his religion. But if this were true, how comes it to pass, that, in proportion as men abound in knowledge, they dwindle in faith?
    —George Berkeley (1685–1753)

    It would much conduce to the public benefit, if, instead of discouraging free-thinking, there was erected in the midst of this free country a dianoetic academy, or seminary for free-thinkers, provided with retired chambers, and galleries, and shady walks and groves, where, after seven years spent in silence and meditation, a man might commence a genuine free-thinker, and from that time forward, have license to think what he pleased, and a badge to distinguish him from counterfeits.
    —George Berkeley (1685–1753)
