  3. “If we are to change our world view, images have to change. The artist now has a very important job to do. He’s not a little peripheral figure entertaining rich people, he’s really needed.” ~ Vaclav Havel

This secular view posits that nature has its own intrinsic meaning and purpose, independent of man.” ~ Dennis Prager

  15. “There was a time when intellectual meant someone who uses reason and intellect. Today, people who call themselves intellectuals are in a form of mental death spiral: they search for, and find, those index cards that support their world view, and clutch little red books like rosaries in the face of all external evidence. They are ruled by appeals to authority. Their self-image and sense of emotional well-being trumps any and all objective evidence to the contrary.” ~ Bill Whittle

  21. “Up until 35 I had a slightly skewed world view. I honestly believed everybody in the world wanted to make abstract paintings, and people only became lawyers and doctors and brokers and things because they couldn’t make abstract paintings” ~ Frank Stella
  22. “The secret to a long-lasting relationship is perpetually imagining the worst. It’s a world view tracing back to my Eastern European ancestry and one I draw upon regularly.” ~ Zoe Lister-Jones
  23. “A system of philosophy, or metaphysics, is a union of a world view and a life view in one harmonious, complete, integral conception. In so far as any man strives to attain, by rational inquiry, a consistent and comprehensive view of life and reality, he is a metaphysician.” ~ Joseph Alexander Leighton , Worldview quotes about life

  28. “If physics leads us today to a world view which is essentially mystical, it returns, in a way, to its beginning, 2,500 years ago… This time, however, it is not only based on intuition, but also on experiments of great precision and sophistication, and on a rigorous and consistent mathematical formalism.” ~ Fritjof Capra
  29. “To become a stoic is to endorse the truthfulness of its world view and accept its prescription for how you ought to live, not just to like how it makes you feel.” ~ Julian Baggini

  30. “I suppose that I inherited the same vocabulary and world view as most black Christians do, most Christians in general, to be sure. It was heterosexist in the sense that it took the heterosexual orientation as the norm from which to start as the given. And everything that fell outside of that was not acceptable.” ~ Michael Eric Dyson
  31. “The essence of humanity’s spiritual dilemma is that we evolved genetically to accept one truth and discovered another. Is there a way to erase the dilemma, to resolve the contradictions between the transcendentalist and the empiricist world views?” ~ E. O. Wilson

  35. “Facebook is not ideologically neutral. In fact, it emerges from a very particular world view which we can trace back to Hobbes.

  36. “I should like to repeat what I stated recently in the Jeddah Economic Forum in Saudi Arabia: It won’t be the religion, but rather the world-view of some of its followers that shall be made current.” ~ Recep Tayyip Erdogan
  37. “Religion, if it is genuine, is so profoundly interwoven with individual thought and experience that it is no more exhaustible than consciousness itself. And fiction whose purpose is didactic is bad no matter whether the matter to be “taught” is Christianity or the world view of Ayn Rand. It seems often to be assumed by writers that religion is a pose, meant to deceive oneself or others, or that it is a bad patch on doubt or complexity. This is only convention, however. The writers I know have a much deeper engagement with the real issues of religion.” ~ Marilynne Robinson
  38. “Class I to XII wasn’t much help; I was always a mediocre student. But when I pursued higher education and studied economics with theatre or psychology with science fiction, I got a whole new world view.” ~ Vir Das

  42. “We are not being true to the artist as a man if we consider his art work junk simply because we differ with his outlook on life. Christian schools, Christian parents, and Christian pastors often have turned off young people at just this point. Because the schools, the pastors, and the parents did not make a distinction between technical excellence and content, the whole of much great art has been rejected with scorn and ridicule. Instead, if the artist’s technical excellence is high, he is to be praised for this, even if we differ with his world view. Man must be treated fairly as man.” ~ Francis Schaeffer
  43. “Animals obviously ranked higher in Michaela’s world view than humans. Having seen some of the things humans were capable of, Elena couldn’t disagree.” ~ Nalini Singh

  44. “If our well-being depends upon the interaction between events in our brains and events in the world, and there are better and worse ways to secure it, then some cultures will tend to produce lives that are more worth living than others; some political persuasions will be more enlightened than others; and some world views will be mistaken in ways that cause needless human misery.” ~ Sam Harris
  45. “The Sarajevans have a very particular world view – a mordant wit coupled with this unbearable sadness and… truckloads of guts, you know.” ~ Geraldine Brooks
  46. “Well, I would have to say as a Christian that I believe any belief system, any world view, whether its Zen Buddhism or Hinduism or dialectical materialism for that matter, Marxism, that keeps persons captive and keeps them from coming to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, yes, is a demonstration of satanic power.” ~ Albert Mohler
  47. “If we are to change our world view, images have to change.” ~ David Hockney

  48. “All I’ve done is put into words what all of us are about. We’re now at the archetypal stage of being ready to move from a material to a transcendent world view of culture.

  49. “Our present political world-view, current in Germany, is based in general on the idea that creative, culture-creating force must indeed be attributed to the state.” ~ Adolf Hitler
  50. “The rest of the world views the USA the way Silicon Valley views Microsoft. Except with tanks.” ~ Brad Templeton
  51. “Reality is much more complex than any judgment of right and wrong encourages you to believe. When you really understand the ethical, spiritual, social, economic, and psychological forces that shape individuals, you will see that people’s choices are not based on a desire to hurt. Instead, they are in accord with what they know and what world views are available to them. Most are doing the best they can, given what information they’ve received and what problems they are facing.” ~ Michael Lerner
  52. “What is interesting about the scientific world view is that it is true, inspiring, remarkable and that it unites a whole lot of phenomena under a single heading.” ~ Richard Dawkins

  53. “When someone says, ‘I love you,’ he is telling you about himself, not you. When someone says, ‘I hate you,’ she is telling you about herself, not you. World views are self views-literally.” ~ Adyashanti
  54. “One of the great unresolved psychological enigmas of the modern western world is the question of what or who has persuaded us to accept as virtually axiomatic a self-view and a world-view that demand we reject out of hand the wisdom and vision of our major philosophers and poets in order to imprison our thought and our very selves in the materialist, mechanical and dogmatic torture-chamber devised by purely quantitative and third-rate scientific minds.” ~ Philip Sherrard
  55. “As a mode of perception that often becomes a style of life, paranoia weaves around the vulnerable self or group an air-tight metaphysic and world view. Paranoia is an antireligious mysticism based on the feeling or perception that the world in general, and others in particular, are against me or us. Reality is perceived as hostile. By contrast, the religious mystic experiences the ground of being as basically friendly to the deepest needs of the self. That which is unknown, strange, or beyond our comprehension is with and for rather than against us.” ~ Sam Keen
  56. “Certain music, jazz in particular, has the ability to make you a better citizen of the world. It helps you expand your world view and gives you more confidence in your cultural achievements. Improvisational jazz teaches you about yourself while the swing in jazz teaches you how to work with others” ~ Wynton Marsalis
  57. “A lot of my world-view is formed by the places I’ve been.” ~ James Ransone

  58. “Rational thinking which is free from assumptions ends therefore in mysticism. To relate oneself in the spirit of reverence for life to the multiform manifestations of the will-to-live which together constitute the world is ethical mysticism. All profound world-view is mysticism, the essence of which is just this: that out of my unsophisticated and naïve existence in the world there comes, as a result of thought about self and the world, spiritual self-devotion to the mysterious infinite Will which is continuously manifested in the universe.” ~ Albert Schweitzer
  59. “I certainly think that the world views the United States as a place to be respected. All over the world our values are respected; who we are, a place that you can come and come from modest circumstances to great things, that’s respected.” ~ Condoleezza Rice
  60. “If you work with such people almost on the level of spiritual direction, you see that they are people who prefer a world view of order and even punitiveness. And for some reason, there’s a feeling that the male psyche is going to give that to them. And if that’s your view of religion, which it is for many people, if they’ve never come to the mystical level, religion is for social order and to maintain social order.” ~ Richard Rohr
  61. “Hindu philosophy was one of the greatest beneficiaries of the advent and the teachings of the Lord Buddha. I revere Buddha as a reformer of not only Hinduism but also the world, who has given all of us a new world view and vision which is critical for the survival of all of us and the entire world.” ~ Narendra Modi
  62. “It’s time to move the debate past the dogmatic view that carbon dioxide is evil and toward a world view that accepts the need for energy that is cheap, abundant, and reliable.” ~ Robert Bryce

  63. “In times of uncertainty, we tend to move away from deterministic world views. And when we try to find moral footing for our actions, we compare ourselves to the foil of all foils, the Nazi period. It’s a quest for moral certainty by saying, “Even if we’re not doing great these days, at least we’re not the Third Reich.” Which can be consoling or alarmist. There’s always a present-day agenda behind it.” ~ Gavriel David Rosenfeld
  64. “I think the reason I choose the comic approach so often is because it’s harder, therefore affording me the opportunity to show off. Also, a comic vision is my natural world view, but I’ve grown up in spite of myself and I can pass the comic twist if it detracts from what the characters need. Yes, the life of a saint is hard.” ~ Rita Mae Brown
  65. “It takes time to develop a sense of humor, shared world views.” ~ Ben Affleck

A person’s worldview is the way they see and understand the world, especially regarding issues such as politics, philosophy, and religion.
