滾滾長江東逝水
浪花淘盡英雄
是非成敗轉頭空
青山依舊在 幾度夕陽紅

白髮漁樵江渚上
慣看秋月春風
一壺濁酒喜相逢
古今多少事 都付笑談中.........by 明‧楊慎《臨江仙》

培根:在書中,我們與智者交談;在行動中,我們與愚者交往。

奧修評論林語堂「生活的藝術」一書:...林語堂對生命一無所知,因為他對死亡一無所知...林語堂在書中漂亮地寫到了許多東西-除了死亡以外,那意味著生命沒有被包含進來。只有在你讓死亡進來的時候,生命才可以進來。生與死是同一個錢幣的兩面,你無法擁有一面而拒絕另一面。但是他寫得很漂亮、很有藝術性---他的確是現代最偉大的作家之一---但是他寫的都只是想像、純粹的想像---只是在夢想著美麗的事情而已。有時候夢可以是美麗的,不是所有的夢都是惡夢。

林語堂在《愛好人生者:陶淵明》一文中稱:所謂理想的哲學家即是一個能領會女人的嫵媚而不流於粗鄙,能愛好人生而不過度,能夠察覺到塵世間成功和失敗的空虛,能夠生活于超越人生和脫離人生的境地,而不仇視人生的人。

Bertrand Russell﹝1872-1970﹞:"The grounds in favour of determinism appear to me over-whelming, ..." He thinks that determinism is very likely to be true, ......。決定論(Determinism ),也就是說:人沒有“自由意志(Freedom of the Will)”。決定論是數百年來為哲學家們廣泛接受的學說。 Spinoza﹝1632-77﹞的《幸福論》精神部分在於“決定論”。

愛因斯坦1931年所撰「生活哲學」一文中有下段文字:I do not believe in freedom of the will. Schopenhauer's words:"Man can do what he wants, but he cannot will what he wills"accompany me in all situations throughout my life and reconcile me with the actions of others even if they are rather painful to me. This awareness of the lack of freedom of will preserves me from taking too seriously myself and my fellow men as acting and deciding individuals and from losing my temper.

Schopenhauer: Everyone believes himself a priori to be perfectly free, even in his individual actions,and thinks that at every moment he can commence another manner of life....But a posteriori, through experience, he finds to his astonishment that he is not free, but subjected to necessity, that in spite of all his resolutions and reflections he does not change his conduct and that from the begining of his life to the end of it, he must carry out the very character which he himself condemns....

Spinoza argues that the illusion of the freedom of our wills is like a stone which thinks it is free as it is flying
