All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, REASON, passion, and desire.
All our progress is an unfolding, like a vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no REASON.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
All power of fancy over REASON is a degree of insanity.
Though this is madness, yet there is method in’t.
An angry man is again angry with himself when he returns to REASON.
As long as I have a want, I have a REASON to live,
satisfaction is death.
George Bernard Shaw
Every politician ought to sacrifice to the graces, and to
join compliance with REASON.
Few women are dump enough to listen to REASON.
For in REASON, all government without the consent of the
governed, is the very definition of slavery.
Give your decision, never your REASON; your decisions
may be right, your REASONs are sure to be wrong.
Great acts thrive when REASON guides the will.
Have we eaten on the insane root
That takes the REASON prisoner ?
William Shakespeare : Macbeth
He only employs his passion who can make no use of his REASON.
He who establishes his argument by noise and command
shows that his REASON is weak.
Michel De Montaigne
He who will not REASON, is a bigot; he who cannot is a
fool; and he who dares not is a slave.
Sir William Drummond
Human REASON needs only to will more strongly than
fate, and she is fate.
