Quote from William James on Philosophy

Philosophy is at once the most sublime and the most trivial of human pursuits. It works in the minutest crannies and it opens out the widest vistas. It “bakes no bread”, as has been said, but it can inspire our souls with courage; and repugnant as its manners, it’s doubting and challenging, it’s quibbling and dialectics, often are to common people, no one of us can get along without the far-flashing beams of light it sends over the world’s perspectives.
