Location: Glasgow Guide / Glasgow Images / Glasgow: Where Egos Dare  

An eclectic is a philosopher who tramples underfoot prejudice, tradition, seniority, universal consent, authority, and everything which subjugates mass opinion; who dares to think for himself, go back to the clearest general principles, examine them, discuss them, and accept nothing except the evidence of his own experience and reason; and who, from all the philosophies which he has analysed without respect to persons, and without partiality, makes a philosophy of his own, peculiar to himself.

    Diderot.

"Are we doing our part in passing to posterity what we have received from our ancestors? Are our attainments equal to our advantages? Can the nineteenth century, now well advanced in years, survey our doings, and, comparing them with what has been done before say...that she is proud?"

St Vincent Street Church

    Alexander
    Thomson

    "He has to fill his heart with wisdom, and to exercise his mind with great thoughts, for the end and aim of his art is to express these. To aid him in so doing, let him search the whole world of nature and art for modes of expression, not that he may quote them entire and unchanged, but that he may learn from them something of the nature of the means of lines, of forms, of proportion, of light and shade, and of colour."
