More From Denis Diderot
- "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."
- "When science, art, literature, and philosophy are simply the manifestation of personality they are on a level where glorious and dazzling achievements are possible, which can make a man’s name live for thousands of years."
- "People praise virtue, but they hate it, they run away from it. It freezes you to death, and in this world you’ve got to keep your feet warm."
