• When once we quit the basis of sensation, all is in the wind. To talk of immaterial existences is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, god, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no god, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise: but I believe I am supported in my creed of materialism by Locke, Tracy, and Stewart.{Letter to John Adams, from Monticello, 15 August 1820}

    John Locke
  • We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us

    John Locke
  • To love truth for truth's sake is the principal part of human perfection in this world, and the seed-plot of all other virtues

    John Locke
  • Being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions

    John Locke
  • For where is the man that has incontestable evidence of the truth of all that he holds, or of the falsehood of all he condemns; or can say that he has examined to the bottom all his own, or other men's opinions? The necessity of believing without knowledge, nay often upon very slight grounds, in this fleeting state of action and blindness we are in, should make us more busy and careful to inform ourselves than constrain others

    John Locke
