The original meaning of the word philosophy comes from the Greek words philein, "to love", and sophia, or wisdom.

The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (c. 570 – 495 BCE).

“If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him”Voltaire

“There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance”Socrates

“Is man merely a mistake of God's? Or God merely a mistake of man's?”Friedrich Nietzsche
