Isaiah Berlin – Single vision versus many ends

Share this quote:
Isaiah BerlinThere exists a great chasm between those, on one side, who relate everything to a single central vision . . . and, on the other side, those who pursue many ends, often unrelated and even contradictory . . .The first kind of intellectual and artistic personality belongs to the hedgehogs, the second to the foxes.

Isaiah Berlin – Do not live only by fighting evil

Share this quote:
Isaiah BerlinInjustice, poverty, slavery, ignorance — these may be cured by reform or revolution. But men do not live only by fighting evils. They live by positive goals, individual and collective, a vast variety of them, seldom predictable, at times incompatible.
