Flavius Claudius Julianus Quotes

"Who, I ask, ever found salvation through the conquests of Alexander? What city was ever more wisely governed because of them, what individual improved?

Whereas all who now find their salvation in philosophy owe it to Socrates."

Quotes About Wasted Youth

"Not only to myself or before the mirror or at the hour of my death, which I hope will be long in coming, but in the presence of my children and my wife and in the face of the peaceful life Im building, I must acknowledge: (1) That under Stalin I wouldnt have wasted my youth in the gulag or ended up with a bullet in the back of my head. (2) That in the McCarthy era I wouldnt have lost my job or had to pump gas at a gas station. (3) That under Hitler, however, I would have been one of those who chose the path of exile, and that under Franco I wouldnt have composed sonnets to the caudillo or the Holy Virgin like so many lifelong democrats. One thing is as true as the other. My bravery has its limits, certainly, but so does what Im willing to swallow. Everything that begins as comedy ends as tragicomedy." - Author: Roberto Bolaño

Quotes About Famous Weariness

"Let me tell you how at one time the famous mathematician Euclid became a physician. It was during a vacation, which I spent in Prague as I most always did, when I was attacked by an illness never before experienced, which manifested itself in chilliness and painful weariness of the whole body. In order to ease my condition I took up Euclids Elements and read for the first time his doctrine of ratio, which I found treated there in a manner entirely new to me. The ingenuity displayed in Euclids presentation filled me with such vivid pleasure, that forthwith I felt as well as ever." - Author: Bernhard Bolzano

Quotes About Scars And Beauty

I thought that would be pretty too, and I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars a s beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, ‘I survived.In a few breaths time I will speak some sad words to you. But you must hear them as we have agreed to see scars now. Sad words are just another beauty. A sad story means the storyteller is alive. The next thing you know, something fine will happen to her, something marvellous, and then she will turn round and smile." - Author: Chris Cleave
