The right of nature... is the liberty each man hath to use his own power, as he will himself, for the preservation of his own nature; that is to say, of his own life.
The condition of man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone.
During the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that conditions called war; and such a war, as if of every man, against every man.
Neugier ist die Lust des Verstandes.
Aber nicht durch Wahrheit, sondern durch Weisungsbefugnis wird etwas zum Gesetz.
