Bryan Magee Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Bryan Magee from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The Copernican revolution brought about by Kant was,
I think, the most important single turning point in
the history of philosophy.
- Bryan Magee

The basic drive behind real philosophy is curiosity about the world,
not interest in the writings of philosophers.
- Bryan Magee

Superstitions and belief in magic are perennial in
just the same way as religion,
and something near to being universal among mankind;
and why this is so may be interesting,
but in most cases the beliefs themselves are devoid of interesting content,
at least to me.
- Bryan Magee

It is impossible to predict the time and progress of revolution.
It is governed by its own more or less mysterious laws.
- Vladimir Lenin

 

Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent.
Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.
The mind gives you a sort of stupor.
Burdened by the memories of the past,
burdened by the projections of the future,
you go on living - at the minimum.
You dont live at the maximum.
Your flame remains very dim.
Once you start dropping thoughts,
the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.
The whole work of meditation is
to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Now you can do and act on only that
which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.
- Osho

Personal transformation can and does have global effects.
As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us.
The revolution that will save the world
is ultimately a personal one.
- Marianne Williamson
