More From Denis Diderot
- "The general interest of the masses might take the place of the insight of genius if it were allowed freedom of action."
- "No man has received from nature the right to command his fellow human beings."
- "Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common."
More In Death
- "It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men live in a city without walls."― Epicurus
- "I believe in the institution of marriage. Of course being a Mormon, we believe in eternity rather than just till death do us part. If you really try hard, if you make it work, it’s blissful. But I also know a marriage that isn’t working can be painful."― Donny Osmond
- "I’m shy and can’t for the life of me barge around and slap people on the back. I sit in a corner by myself and am tickled to death when someone comes over to talk to me."― Alan Ladd
