Instinct quotes

Oliver Wendell Holmes
A goose flies by a chart which the Royal Geographical Society could not mend.

Francois Duc De La Rochefoucauld
The love of glory, the fear of disgrace, the incentive to succeed, the desire to live in comfort, and the instinct to humiliate others are often the cause of that courage so renowned among men

Immanuel Kant
Intuition and concepts constitute... the elements of all our knowledge, so that neither concepts without an intuition in some way corresponding to them, nor intuition without concepts, can yield knowledge.

Henri Matisse
Instinct must be thwarted just as one prunes the branches of a tree so that it will grow better.

Henry David Thoreau
What is peculiar in the life of a man consists not in his obedience, but his opposition, to his instincts. In one direction or another he strives to live a supernatural life.

Bertrand Russell
If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.

Rita Mae Brown
Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts.

William Osler
The natural man has only two primal passions, to get and to beget.
