A person is never happy till their vague strivings has itself marked out its proper limitations.Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
In philosophy, ontology is the study of being or existence.
- "I didn’t believe that such a thing, as a swamp beast actually existed. But I was not going to hang about discussing ontological problems with such a phenomena". Steve Sayles
- The genius of culture is to create an ontological system so compelling that what is inside and outside of a person are viewed as of a piece, no seams and patches noticable.
- Richard Shweder, "Cultural psyschology-What is it?" Cultural Psychology (1990)
- Ontology recapitulates philology.
