Alexandre Dumas Fils Quotes

"Tornai a Parigi, e scrissi questa storia esattamente come mi era stata raccontata. Essa ha soltanto un merito, che probabilmente le sarà contestato: quello di esser vera.Non traggo da questo racconto la conclusione che tutte le donne come Marguerite sono capaci di fare quello che ha fatto lei: me ne guardo bene. Ma sono venuto a sapere che una di loro aveva provato, nella sua vita, un grande amore, che ne aveva sofferto e ne era morta. Ho raccontato al lettore quello che avevo saputo. Era un dovere.Non sono lapostolo del vizio, ma mi farò leco della nobile infelicità dovunque la sentirò supplicare.La storia di Marguerite è uneccezione, lo ripeto; se fosse stata una storia come tutte le altre non sarebbe valsa la pena di scriverla."

Quotes About Remembering The Past

"This, then, is the human problem: there is a price to be paid for every increase in consciousness. We cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain. By remembering the past we can plan for the future. But the ability to plan for the future is offset by the "ability" to dread pain and to fear of the unknown. Furthermore, the growth of an acute sense of the past and future gives us a corresponding dim sense of the present. In other words, we seem to reach a point where the advantages of being conscious are outweighed by its disadvantages, where extreme sensitivity makes us unadaptable." - Author: Alan Wilson Watts
