Author Quotes

Sleep does make us all equal, it seems to me, like his big brother - Death.

The meaning of our life is the road, not the goal. For each answer is delusive, each fulfillment melts away between our fingers, and the goal is not longer a goal once it is attained.

The three criteria of a work of art: harmony, intensity, continuity.

Without our faith in free will the earth would be the scene not only of the most horrible nonsense but also of the most intolerable boredom.

To be practical in life means to take everything seriously and nothing tragically.

I trust your wisdom only when it comes from the heart, your goodness when it comes from the mind.

The roads to freedom do not run through the lands out yonder, but rather through our inner selves.
