'The Gift of Truth Excels all Other Gifts' (Buddha)
Karene Jade Howie - Student of Philosophy and overworked shop keeper!
Hello and welcome to the Philosophy Shop. We have a beautiful gallery of famous portraits and fine art prints with profound quotes from many of the greatest minds of human history - making it simple and easy to find artful intelligent gifts for friends and family (and yourself of course!).

We have purchased a variety of things (posters, journals, calendars, caps, t-shirts, buttons, coffee mugs, etc.) and can confirm their high quality. But most importantly, the daily experience of seeing these portraits and words of wisdom is a cheerful reminder of the more noble and beautiful aspects of our human nature & creativity.

So stand out from the crowd (and get some interesting comments!) with our cool collection of clothing, prints and apparel!


Hope you enjoy browsing around. Cheers,
Karene Jade Howie


'At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.' (Aristotle) 'Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; it is appeased by love. This is an eternal Law.' (Buddha) 'I have striven not to laugh at human actions, not to weep at them, nor to hate them, but to understand them.' (Spinoza) 'The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.' (Bertrand Russell) 'The scientist only imposes two things, namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself and upon other scientists'. (Erwin Schrodinger) 'The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God.' (Euclid) 'I am one of those who think like Nobel, that humanity will draw more good than evil from new discoveries.' (Marie Curie) 'Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.' (Seneca the Younger) 'If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships - the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.' (Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR))
'Since philosophy is the art which teaches us how to live, and since children need to learn it as much as we do at other ages, why do we not instruct them in it?' (Michel de Montaigne on Philosophy of Education) 'The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future.' (Herbert Spencer) 'The Truth is far more powerful than any weapon of mass destruction.' (Mohandas Mahatma Gandhi) 'No one was ever yet a great poet, without being at the same time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom and the fragrancy of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language.' (Samuel Taylor Coleridge) 'In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.' (George Orwell) 'Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.' (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) 'No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.' (Mary Wollstonecraft, Vindication of the Rights of Women) 'Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.' (Francisco de Goya) 'QUESTION: What do you get when you cross the Godfather with a philosopher? ANSWER: An offer you can't understand.'

The Immaculate Conception (1619), Diego Velazquez, (1599 - 1660)Diego Velazquez Brief Biography
Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (June, 1599 – August 6, 1660), commonly referred to as Diego Velázquez, was a Spanish painter, the leading artist in the court of King Philip IV. He was an individualistic artist of the contemporary baroque period, important as a portrait artist. His two visits to Italy while part of the Spanish court are well documented. In addition to numerous renditions of scenes of historical and cultural significance, he created scores of portraits of the Spanish royal family, other notable European figures, and commoners, culminating in the production of his masterpiece, Las Meninas (1656). Diego Velazquez Biography

About the painting, 'The Immaculate Conception' (1619)
Because of Velasquez' great skill in merging color, light, space, rhythm of line, and mass in such a way that all have equal value, he was known as "the painter's painter." Ever since he taught Bartolomé Murillo, Velasquez has directly or indirectly led painters to make original contributions to the development of art. Others who have been noticeably influenced by him are Francisco de Goya, Camille Corot, Gustave Courbet, Edouard Manet, and James McNeill Whistler. His famous paintings include The Surrender of Breda, an equestrian portrait of Philip IV, The Spinners, The Maids of Honor, Pope Innocent X, Christ at Emmaus, and a portrait of the Infanta Maria Theresa.

Karene contemplating all the work she has done on the Philosophy Shop!ABOUT YOUR SHOP KEEPER: KARENE HOWIE
My partner (philosopher Geoff Haselhurst) and I are building a large philosophy website which is the source (and inspiration) for most of the Philosophy images and quotes in this shop.
Below are some of our favourite philosophers / quotes and links to relevant pages of our website. Philosophy (which is ultimately about Wisdom from Truth and Reality) is important to our world (all proceeds from this shop are used to promote our work on Philosophy).
Thus we also hope that you find our philosophy website interesting!
Cheers, Karene. (August, 2010)

The Most Simple Science Theory of Physical Reality.
Philosophy Physics Metaphysics of Space & the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM).
'Most of the fundamental ideas of science are simple and can be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone. ... Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.' (Albert Einstein) 'Metaphysics is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And here we will have the science to study that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which it has.' (Aristotle, 340BC) 'When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.' (Albert Einstein) 'What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. Particles are just schaumkommen (appearances).' (Erwin Schrodinger on Quantum Physics / Wave Mechanics) 'Can we visualize a universe which is finite yet unbounded? ... The supreme task of the physicist is to arrive at those universal laws from which the cosmos can be built up by pure deduction.' (Albert Einstein) 'There is nothing more necessary than truth. ... One does not want to be deceived, under the supposition that it is injurious, dangerous, or fatal to be deceived.' (Friedrich Nietzsche on Philosophy) 'Although I am fully convinced of the truth of Evolution, I by no means expect to convince experienced naturalists. But I look with confidence to the future naturalists, who will be able to view both sides with impartiality.' (Charles Darwin) 'If religion is the establishing of a relationship between man and the universe, then morality is the explanation of those activities that automatically result when a person maintains a relationship to the universe.' (Leo Tolstoy) 'Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation.' (Sigmund Freud) Evolving a healthy lifestyle. Preventative medicine of physical exercise and consuming clean air, water and nature based organic food.
