Gottfried Leibniz Quotes and Sayings

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

For since it is impossible for a created monad to have
a physical influence on the inner nature of another,
this is the only way in which one can be dependent on another.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I also take it as granted that every created thing,
and consequently the created monad also,
is subject to change, and indeed that this change is continual in each one.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from
counting without being aware that it is counting.
- Gottfried Leibniz

When a truth is necessary, the reason for it can be found by analysis,
that is, by resolving it into simpler ideas and truths
until the primary ones are reached.
- Gottfried Leibniz

 

But in simple substances the influence of one monad
over another is ideal only.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I do not conceive of any reality at all as without genuine unity.
- Gottfried Leibniz

It follows from what we have just said,
that the natural changes of monads come from an internal principle,
since an external cause would be unable to influence their inner being.
- Gottfried Leibniz

There are also two kinds of truths: truth of reasoning and truths of fact.
Truths of reasoning are necessary and their opposite is impossible;
those of fact are contingent and their opposite is possible.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Finally there are simple ideas of which no definition can be given;
there are also axioms or postulates,
or in a word primary principles, which cannot be proved
and have no need of proof.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Men act like brutes in so far as the sequences of their
perceptions arise through the principle of memory only,
like those empirical physicians who have mere practice without theory.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Indeed every monad must be different from every other.
For there are never in nature two beings,
which are precisely alike, and in which it is not possible
to find some difference which is internal,
or based on some intrinsic quality.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Now where there are no parts, there neither extension,
nor shape, nor divisibility is possible.
And these monads are the true atoms of nature and,
in a word, the elements of things.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial,
cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity,
activity being of the essence of substance in general.
- Gottfried Leibniz

I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its
possibility can be proved,
either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason,
or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is in fact in nature.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Whence it follows that God is absolutely perfect,
since perfection is nothing but magnitude of positive reality,
in the strict sense, setting aside the limits or bounds
in things which are limited.
- Gottfried Leibniz

The ultimate reason of things must lie in a necessary substance,
in which the differentiation of the changes only exists
eminently as in their source;
and this is what we call God.
- Gottfried Leibniz

It can have its effect only through the intervention of God,
inasmuch as in the ideas of God a monad rightly demands that God,
in regulating the rest from the beginning of things,
should have regard to itself.
- Gottfried Leibniz

This is why the ultimate reason of things must lie
in a necessary substance,
in which the differentiation of the changes only exists
eminently as in their source;
and this is what we call God.
- Gottfried Leibniz

Since you are the one who has to live with your choices,
be sure they are your own.
- Alan Cohen

It had long since come to my attention
that people of accomplishment
rarely sat back and let things happen to them.
They went out and happened to things.
- Leonardo da Vinci

Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others,
you should put a good deal of thought
into the happiness that you are able to give.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Since it is not granted to us to live long,
let us transmit to posterity some memorial that we have at least lived.
- E. Joseph Cossman

Friendship is a thing most necessary to life,
since without friends no one would choose to live,
though possessed of all other advantages.
- Aristotle

Since there is nothing so well worth having as friends,
never lose a chance to make them.
- Francesco Guicciardini

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows.
For love is the beauty of the soul.
- Saint Augustine

This life is worth living, we can say,

thing to happen to musicians since the invention of
