Cytaty Giordano Bruno

„Ignorancja i arogancja to dwie nierozłączne siostrzyce.“

—  Giordano Bruno

Źródło: Bliski Wschód. Społeczeństwa, polityka, tradycje, t. 3, Academica, 2006, s. 189.

„Wy, którzy mnie skazujecie, bardziej być może boicie się tego wyroku niż ja.“

—  Giordano Bruno

słowa wypowiedziane do sędziów.

„Jeśli to nie jest prawdziwe, to jednak dobrze wymyślone.“

—  Giordano Bruno

Se non è vero, è molto ben trovato. (wł.)
Źródło: De gl’ heroici furor, 1585

„Divinity reveals herself in all things… everything has Divinity latent within itself.“

—  Giordano Bruno

As translated by Arthur Imerti (1964)
The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast (1584)
Kontekst: Divinity reveals herself in all things... everything has Divinity latent within itself. For she enfolds and imparts herself even unto the smallest beings, and from the smallest beings, according to their capacity. Without her presence nothing would have being, because she is the essence of the existence of the first unto the last being.

„Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of his kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds.“

—  Giordano Bruno

On the Infinite Universe and Worlds (1584)
Kontekst: Make then your forecasts, my lords Astrologers, with your slavish physicians, by means of those astrolabes with which you seek to discern the fantastic nine moving spheres; in these you finally imprison your own minds, so that you appear to me but as parrots in a cage, while I watch you dancing up and down, turning and hopping within those circles. We know that the Supreme Ruler cannot have a seat so narrow, so miserable a throne, so trivial, so scanty a court, so small and feeble a simulacrum that phantasm can bring to birth, a dream shatter, a delusion restore, a calamity diminish, a misdeed abolish and a thought renew it again, so that indeed with a puff of air it were brimful and with a single gulp it were emptied. On the contrary we recognize a noble image, a marvellous conception, a supreme figure, an exalted shadow, an infinite representation of the represented infinity, a spectacle worthy of the excellence and supremacy of Him who transcendeth understanding, comprehension or grasp. Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of his kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds.

„Nature is none other than God in things…“

—  Giordano Bruno

As quoted in Elements of Pantheism (2004) by Paul A. Harrison
Kontekst: Nature is none other than God in things... Animals and plants are living effects of Nature; Whence all of God is in all things... Think thus, of the sun in the crocus, in the narcissus, in the heliotrope, in the rooster, in the lion.

„The fools of the world have been those who have established religions, ceremonies, laws, faith, rule of life.“

—  Giordano Bruno

Cabal of the Cheval Pegasus (1585)
Kontekst: The fools of the world have been those who have established religions, ceremonies, laws, faith, rule of life. The greatest asses of the world are those who, lacking all understanding and instruction, and void of all civil life and custom, rot in perpetual pedantry; those who by the grace of heaven would reform obscure and corrupted faith, salve the cruelties of perverted religion and remove abuse of superstitions, mending the rents in their vesture. It is not they who indulge impious curiosity or who are ever seeking the secrets of nature, and reckoning the courses of the stars. Observe whether they have been busy with the secret causes of things, or if they have condoned the destruction of kingdoms, the dispersion of peoples, fires, blood, ruin or extermination; whether they seek the destruction of the whole world that it may belong to them: in order that the poor soul may be saved, that an edifice may be raised in heaven, that treasure may be laid up in that blessed land, caring naught for fame, profit or glory in this frail and uncertain life, but only for that other most certain and eternal life.

„In it are an infinity of worlds of the same kind as our own.“

—  Giordano Bruno

<!-- V Singer p. 59 -->
On the Infinite Universe and Worlds (1584)
Kontekst: It is then unnecessary to investigate whether there be beyond the heaven Space, Void or Time. For there is a single general space, a single vast immensity which we may freely call Void; in it are innumerable globes like this one on which we live and grow. This space we declare to be infinite, since neither reason, convenience, possibility, sense-perception nor nature assign to it a limit. In it are an infinity of worlds of the same kind as our own.

„Our philosophy… reduceth to a single origin and relateth to a single end, and maketh contraries to coincide so that there is one primal foundation both of origin and of end.“

—  Giordano Bruno

As translated by Dorothea Waley Singer (1950) <!-- p. 84 -->
De immenso (1591)
Kontekst: Our philosophy… reduceth to a single origin and relateth to a single end, and maketh contraries to coincide so that there is one primal foundation both of origin and of end. From this coincidence of contraries, we deduce that ultimately it is divinely true that contraries are within contraries; wherefore it is not difficult to compass the knowledge that each thing is within every other.
