  2. Jonathan Swift:

  3. Dugald Stewart:

    The faculty of imagination is the great spring of human activity, and the principle source of human improvement. As it delights in presenting to the mind scenes and characters more perfect than those which we are acquainted with, it prevents us from ever being completely satisfied without present condition, or with our past attainments, and engages us continually in the pursuit of some untried enjoyment, or of some ideal excellence. Destroy this faculty, and the condition of man will become as stationary as that of the brutes.

  4. Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy:

    Consider your origin; you were not born to live like brutes, but to follow virtue and knowledge.

  5. Cicero:

    The wise are instructed by reason; ordinary minds by experience; the stupid, by necessity; and brutes by instinct.
