„But he who does not let his infirmity be known can scarcely expect to receive a cure. Love is an invisible wound within the body, and, since it has its source in nature, it is a long-lasting ill.“

—  Marie de France, "Guigemar", line 481; p. 49.

„Reason is feminine in nature; it can only give after it has received. Of itself it has nothing but the empty forms of its operation.“

—  Arthur Schopenhauer German philosopher 1788 - 1860
Context: Reason is feminine in nature; it can only give after it has received. Of itself it has nothing but the empty forms of its operation. There is no absolutely pure rational knowledge except the four principles to which I have attributed metalogical truth; the principles of identity, contradiction, excluded middle, and sufficient reason of knowledge. For even the rest of logic is not absolutely pure rational knowledge. It presupposes the relations and the combinations of the spheres of concepts. But concepts in general only exist after experience of ideas of perception, and as their whole nature consists in their relation to these, it is clear that they presuppose them. Vol. I, Ch. 10, as translated by R. B. Haldane Variant translations: Reason is feminine in nature; it can give only after it has received. Of itself alone, it has nothing but the empty forms of its operation. As translated by Eric F. J. Payne (1958) Vol. II, p. 50 Reason is feminine in nature: it will give only after it has received.

„The love of a dog for his master is notorious; in the agony of death he has been known to caress his master, and every one has heard of the dog suffering under vivisection, who licked the hand of the operator; this man, unless he had a heart of stone, must have felt remorse to the last hour of his life.“

„It is only he who is possessed of the most complete sincerity that can exist under heaven, who can give its full development to his nature. Able to give its full development to his own nature, he can do the same to the nature of other men.“

—  Confucius Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher -550 - -478 a.C.
Context: It is only he who is possessed of the most complete sincerity that can exist under heaven, who can give its full development to his nature. Able to give its full development to his own nature, he can do the same to the nature of other men. Able to give its full development to the nature of other men, he can give their full development to the natures of animals and things. Able to give their full development to the natures of creatures and things, he can assist the transforming and nourishing powers of Heaven and Earth. Able to assist the transforming and nourishing powers of Heaven and Earth, he may with Heaven and Earth form a ternion.
