1. "Mais le narrateur est plutôt tente de croire qu'en donnant trop d'importance aux belles actions, on rend finalement un hommage indirect et puissant au mal. Car on laisse supposer alors que ces belles actions n'ont tant de prix que parce qu'elles sont rares et que la méchanceté et l'indifférence sont des moteurs bien plus fréquents dans les actions des hommes. C'est la une idée que le narrateur ne partage pas. Le mal qui est dans le monde vient presque toujours de l'ignorance, et la bonne volonté peut faire autant de dégâts que la méchanceté, si elle n'est pas éclairée. Les hommes sont plutôt bons que mauvais, et en vérité ce n'est pas la question. Mais ils ignorent plus ou moins, et c'est ce qu'on appelle vertu ou vice, le vice le plus désespérant étant celui de l'ignorance qui croit tout savoir et qui autorise alors a tuer. L'ame du meurtrier est aveugle et il n'y a pas de vraie bonté ni de belle amour sans toute la clairvoyance possible."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "This is strange, Henry. Before, as soon as I came home from all sorts of places I would sit down and write in my journal. Now I want to write you, talk with you. [...]I love when you say all that happens is good, it is good. I say all that happens is wonderful. For me it is all symphonic, and I am so aroused by living - god, Herny, in you alone I have found the same swelling of enthusiasm, the same quick rising of the blood, the fullness. [...]Before, I almost used to think there was something wrong. Everybody else seemed to have the brakes on. [...] I never feel the brakes. I overflow. And when I feel your excitement about life flaring, next to mine, then it makes me dizzy."
Author: Anaïs Nin
3. "We are hurtling back into a Soviet abyss, into an information vacuum that spells death from our own ignorance. All we have left is the internet, where information is still freely available. For the rest, if you want to go on working as a journalist, it's total servility to Putin. Otherwise, it can be death, the bullet, poison, or trial—whatever our special services, Putin's guard dogs, see fit."
Author: Anna Politkovskaya
4. "In Pliny I read about the invention of clay modeling. A Sicyonian potter came to Corinth. There his daughter fell in love with a young man who had to make frequent long journeys away from the city. When he sat with her at home, she used to trace the outline of his shadow that a candle's light cast on the wall. Then, in his absence she worked over the profile, deepening, so that she might enjoy his face, and remember. One day the father slapped some potter's clay over the gouged plaster; when the clay hardened he removed it, baked it, and "showed it abroad" (63)."
Author: Annie Dillard

Author: Baron D'Holbach

Author: Bryan Sykes

10. "Antérieur à l'évolutionnisme biologique, théorie scientifique, l'évolutionnisme social n'est, trop souvent, que le maquillage faussement scientifique d'un vieux problème philosophique dont il n'est nullement certain que l'observation et l'induction puissent un jour fournir la clef. (p.20)"
Author: Claude Lévi Strauss
11. "Maybe that's what's waiting for us at the end of the journey, a majesty unimaginable until the very moment we find ourselves walking through the doors of it, what we find ourselves gazing at in astonishment when God finally takes His hands off our eyes and says: Look!"

12. "It is very hard to live with silence. The real silence is death and this is terrible. To approach this silence, it is necessary to journey to the desert. You do not go to the desert to find identity, but to loses it, to lose your personality, to be anonymous. You make yourself void. You become silence. You become more silent than the silence around you. And then something extraordinary happens: you hear silence speak."
Author: Edmond Jabès
13. "Il ne fait aucun doute pour moi que la sagesse est le but principal de la vie et c'est pourquoi je reviens toujours aux stoïciens. Ils ont atteint la sagesse, on ne peut donc plus les appeler des philosophes au sens propre du terme. De mon point de vue, la sagesse est le terme naturel de la philosophie, sa fin dans les deux sens du mot. Une philosophie finit en sagesse et par là même disparaît."
Author: Emil Cioran
14. "He believes that if talent is demanded of a literary publisher or a writer, it must also be demanded of a reader. Because we mustn't deceive ourselves: on the journey of reading we often travel through difficult terrains that demand a capacity for intelligent emotion, a desire to understand the other, and to approach a language distinct from the one of our daily tyrannies… Writers fail readers, but it also happens the other way around and readers fail writers when all they ask of them is confirmation that the world is how they see it."
Author: Enrique Vila Matas

In this country intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face, and that fact does not seem to me to have had the discussion it deserves."
Author: George Orwell

"Arriver per fas et nefas au paradis terrestre du luxe et des jouissances vaniteuses, pe´trifier son cœur et se mace´rer le corps en vue de possessions passage`res, comme on souffrait jadis le martyre de la vie en vue de biens e´ternels, est la pense´e ge´ne´rale ! pense´e d'ailleurs e´crite par- tout, jusque dans les lois, qui demandent au le´gislateur : Que payes-tu ? au lieu de lui dire : Que penses-tu ? Quand cette doctrine aura passe´ de la bourgeoisie au peuple, que deviendra le pays ?"

I'm not usually interested in a guy with "take a number" on his forehead, but this guy doesn't have a forehead — it's buried in messy blond hair. And he's not one of the twenty guys I've known my entire pubescent life. he smiles like the Fourth of July. What's a dumb girl to do but get in line with everyone else not in his league? I guess journalism just became my most beloved class."
Author: Kristen Chandler

Author: Madhur Bhandarkar
33. "On est tous seuls, ici, à Paris, ou ailleurs. On peut essayer de fuir la solitude, déménagé, faire tout pour rencontrer des gens, cela ne change rien. A la fin de la journée, chacun rentre chez soi. Ceux qui vivent en couple ne se rendent pas compte de leur chance. Ils ont oublié les soirées devant un plateau-repas, l'angoisse du week-end qui arrive, le dimanche à espérer que le téléphone sonne. Nous sommes des millions comme ça dans toutes les capitales du monde. La seule bonne nouvelle c'est qu'il n'y a pas de quoi se sentir si différents des autres."
Author: Marc Levy

37. "So what exactly would an ecological detective set loose in an American supermarket discover, were he to trace the items in his shopping cart all the way back to the soil? The notion began to occupy me a few years ago, after I realized that the straightforward question 'What should I eat?' could no longer be answered without first addressing two other even more straightforward questions: 'What am I eating? And where in the world did it come from?' Not very long ago an eater didn't need a journalist to answer these questions. The fact that today one so often does suggests a pretty good start on a working definition of industrial food: Any food whose provenance is so complex or obscure that it requires expert help to ascertain."
Author: Michael Pollan

43. "L'homme jouit du bonheur qu'il ressent, et la femme de celui qu'elle procure. Cette différence, si essentielle et si peu remarquée, influe pourtant, d'une manière bien sensible, sur la totalité de leur conduite respective. Le plaisir de l'un est de satisfaire ses désirs, celui de l'autre est surtout de les faire naître. Plaire, n'est pour lui qu'un moyen de succès ; tandis que pour elle, c'est le succès lui-même."
Author: Pierre Choderlos De Laclos
44. "Aimer est la seule richesse qui croît avec la prodigalité. Plus on donne et plus il vous reste. [...] Moins il reste de chacun, et plus il reste des deux [...] Je vivrai jusqu'au plus grand âge, pour te donner ma mémoire.

Author: Simone De Beauvoir
