„Philosophy is the science of estimating values.“

—  Manly P. Hall Canadian writer and mystic 1901 - 1990

Introduction, p. 4
The Secret Teachings of All Ages (1928)
Kontext: Philosophy is the science of estimating values. The superiority of any state or substance over another is determined by philosophy. By assigning a position of primary importance to what remains when all that is secondary has been removed, philosophy thus becomes the true index of priority or emphasis in the realm of speculative thought.

„I wanted to find another order, another value for man in nature. He should no longer be the measure of all things“

—  Hans Arp Alsatian, sculptor, painter, poet and abstract artist 1886 - 1966

Zdroj: 1960s, Jours effeuillés: Poèmes, essaies, souvenirs (1966), p. 183
Kontext: I wanted to find another order, another value for man in nature. He should no longer be the measure of all things, nor should everything be compared with him, but, on the contrary, all things, and man as well, should be like nature, without measure. I wanted to create new appearances, to extract new forms from man. This is made clear in my objects from 1917.

„It is of infinite moment, that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness“

—  George Washington first President of the United States 1732 - 1799

1790s, Farewell Address (1796)
Kontext: It is of infinite moment, that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the Palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion, that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.
