From Sophie's World
The smallest object in nature is the atom, many varieties, and they make up everything in the world around us.
Our truth and our souls must be valued much above physical life.
Everything has an imagined "ideal form", and what we see are poor imitations of that ideal form.
Humans are unique because they can categorize other things.
"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light. No one can come to the Father except through me."
There is a limit to how far philosophy can go; it goes further with God.
There are two paths to God: faith and reason.
You can connect with God outside of the church.
Stayed with the Roman Catholic Church
Everything- including the soul- is tangible and made of atoms.
Organizing philosophies, only reason can be proved. He doubted, therefore he was.
God is in creation; nature is God
Our minds are empty until we sense the world; there are two categories: subjective and objective.
If something is complex but never experienced, commit it to the flames!
We exist only in God's mind.
We can never have certain knowledge of things, we can only know how things appear to us.
No idea is universally or eternally right, history is a changing river (he made all philosophies work together)
Subjectivity is essential; there are three stages of life: aesthetic, ethical, and religious
There is no eternal truth, it depends on when and where you grow up
Evolution, survival of the fittest
