Author Quotes

To live is nothing more than to come here to die, to be what we were before being born, but with apprenticeship, experience, knowledge of cause, and perhaps with will.

Perhaps this momentary life of ours is only the light that divides our infinite origin from our infinite end.

I am not I. I am this one walking beside me whom I do not see, whom at times I manage to visit, and whom at other times I forget; who remains calm and silent while I talk, and forgives, gently, when I hate, who walks where I am not, who will remain standing when I die.

The greatest assassin of life is haste, the desire to reach things before the right time which means overreaching them.

A permanent state of transition is man's most noble condition.
