We would not be interested in human beings if we did not have the hope of someday meeting someone worse off than ourselves.
Isn't history ultimately the result of our fear of boredom?
Woes and wonders of Power, that tonic hell, synthesis of poison and panacea.

Life is possible only by the deficiencies of our imagination and memory.
The desire to die was my one and only concern to it I have sacrificed everything, even death.
Intelligence flourishes only in the ages when belief withers.
What does the future, that half of time, matter to the man who is infatuated with eternity?
What surrounds us we endure better for giving it a name - and moving on.
Music is the refuge of souls ulcerated by happiness.
No one can enjoy freedom without trembling.
For you who no longer posses it, freedom is everything, for us who do, it is merely an illusion.
