George Berkeley Quotes
George Berkeley Quotes

If we admit a thing so extraordinary as the creation of this world, it should seem that we admit something strange, and odd, and new to human apprehension, beyond any other miracle whatsoever.”

― George Berkeley


“HE who says there is no such thing as an honest man, you may be sure is himself a knave.”

― George Bishop Berkeley


“truly my opinion is, that all our opinions are alike vain and uncertain. what we approve today, we condemn tomorrow. we keep a stir about knowledge, and spend our lives in the pursuit of it, when, alas! we know nothing all the while: nor do i think it possible for us to ever know anything in this life. our faculties are too narrow and too few. nature certainly never intended us for speculation.”

― George Berkeley


“From my own being, and from the dependency I find in myself and my ideas, I do, by an act of reason, necessarily infer the existence of a God, and of all created things in the mind of God.”

― George Berkeley


“The same principles which at first view lead to skepticism , pursued to a certain point , bring men back to common sense”

― George Berkeley


“Upon the whole, I am inclined to think that the far greater part, if not all, of those difficulties which have hitherto amused philosophers, and blocked up the way to knowledge, are entirely owing to ourselves--that we have first raised a dust and then complain we cannot see.”

― George Berkeley


“I had rather be an oyster than a man,

the most stupid and senseless of animals.”

― George Berkeley

“[T]he communicating of ideas marked by words is not the chief and only end of language, as is commonly supposed.”

― George Berkeley


“The phenomena of nature, which strike on the senses and are understood by the mind, form not only a magnificent spectacle, but also a most coherent, entertaining, and instructive Discourse; and to effect this, they are conducted, adjusted, and ranged by the greatest wisdom. This Language or Discourse is studied with different attention, and interpreted with different degrees of skill. But so far as men have studied and remarked its rules, and can interpret right, so far they may be said to be knowing in nature. A beast is like a man who hears a strange tongue but understands nothing.”

― George Berkeley


“In vain do we extend our view into the heavens, and pry into the entrails of the earth, in vain do we consult the writings of learned men, and trace the dark footsteps of antiquity; we need only draw the curtain of words, to behold the fairest tree of knowledge, whose fruit is excellent, and within the reach of our hand.”

― George Berkeley


“My inference will be that you mean nothing at all. That you employ words to no manner or purpose without any design or signification whatsoever. And I leave it to you to consider how mere jargon should be treated.”

― George Berkeley


“If the fact that brutes abstract not be made the distinguishing property of that sort of animal, I fear a great many of those that pass for men must be reckoned into their number.”

― Bishop Berkeley

“I am old and do not suffer fools gently and if you expect me to review your work, it better meet my stringent standards for logic and science.”

― George Berkeley


“I see this cherry, I feel it, I taste it: and I am sure NOTHING cannot be seen, or felt, or tasted: it is therefore red. Take away the sensations of softness, moisture, redness, tartness, and you take away the cherry, since it is not a being distinct from sensations. A cherry, I say, is nothing but a congeries of sensible impressions, or ideas perceived by various senses: which ideas are united into one thing (or have one name given them) by the mind, because they are observed to attend each other. Thus, when the palate is affected with such a particular taste, the sight is affected with a red colour, the touch with roundness, softness, &c. Hence, when I see, and feel, and taste, in such sundry certain manners, I am sure the cherry exists, or is real; its reality being in my opinion nothing abstracted from those sensations. But if by the word CHERRY you, mean an unknown nature, distinct from all those sensible qualities, and by its EXISTENCE something distinct from its being perceived; then, indeed, I own, neither you nor I, nor any one else, can be sure it exists.”

― George Berkeley


“Suppose now one of your hands hot, and the other cold, and that they are both at once put into the same vessel of water, in an intermediate state, will not the water seem cold to one hand, and warm to the other?”

― George Berkeley

Quotes by George Berkeley 


“I give up the point for the present, reserving still a right to detract my opinion in case I shall hereafter discover any false step in my progress to it.”

― George Berkeley


“Mišljenje da kuće, planine, reke i, jednom rečju, svi čulni objekti, poseduju egzistenciju, prirodnu ili stvarnu, nezavisno od toga da li su opaženi razumom ili ne, zaista neobično preovlađuje među ljudima. Ali ma sa kolikim uverenjem ili slaganjem ovaj princip bio prihvaćen u svetu, ipak svako ko je spreman dag a ispita može, ako se ne varam, opaziti da sadrži očiglednu protivrečnost. Jer, šta su ti objekti do stvari koje opažamo čulima? I šta mi opažamo osim naših sopstvenih ideja ili osećaja? I nije li očigledno apsurdno da bi bilo koji od njih ili bilo koja njihova kombinacija mogla postojati neopaženo?”

― George Berkeley
