Quotes About They Are All The Same

"For Kierkegaard, for Heidegger, for Sartre, the more profound the awareness, the more authentic the existence. They measure honesty and the essence of experience by the degree of awareness. But is our humanity really built on awareness? Doesnt awareness--that forced, extreme awareness--arise among us, not from us, as something created by effort, the mutual perfecting of ourselves in it, the confirming of something that one philosopher forces onto another? Isnt man, therefore, in his private reality, something childish and always beneath his own awareness? And doesnt he feel awareness to be, at the same time, something alien, imposed and unimportant? If this is how it is, this furtive childhood, this concealed degradation are ready to explode your systems sooner or later." - Author: Witold Gombrowicz

Quotes About Taking Things One Day At A Time

"Dwindling energy is one of the most boring things about being old. From time to time you get a day when it seems to be restored, and you cant help feeling that you are back to normal, but it never lasts.

In my case I fear that what I most often do less of is my duty towards my companion rather than indulgence of my private inclinations." - Author: Diana Athill

Quotes About True Christian Faith

"It is in Christianity that our arts have developed; it is in Christianity that the laws of Europe--until recently--have been rooted. It is against a background of Christianity that all of our thought has significance. An individual European may not believe that the Christian faith is true, and yet what he says, and makes, and does will all spring out of his heritage of Christian culture and depend upon that culture for its meaning...I do not believe that culture of Europe could survive the complete disappearance of the Christian faith. And I am convinced of that, not merely because I am a Christian myself, but as a student of social biology. If Christianity goes, the whole culture goes." - Author: T.S. Eliot
