"We do not really know what draws a human being out into the world. Is it curiosity? A hunger for experience? An addiction to wonderment? The man who ceases to be astonished is hollow, possessed of an extinguished heart. If he believes that everything has already happened, that he has seen it all, then something most precious has died within him—the delight in life." ~ Ryszard Kapuściński
"Biel czesto kojarzy sie z ostatecznoscia, z kresem, ze smiercia. W tych kulturach, w których ludzie zyja lekiem przed smiercia zalobnicy ubieraja sie na czarno, zeby odstraszyc od siebie smierc, izolowac ja, ograniczyc do zmarlego. Tam jednak, gdzie smierc jest uwazana za inna forme, inna postac istnienia, zalobnicy ubieraja sie na bialo i na bialo ubieraja zmarlego: biel jest tu kolorem akceptacji, zgody, przystania na los." ~ Ryszard Kapuściński
"Two lusts breed in the soul of man: the lust for aggresion, and the lust for telling lies. If one will not allow himself to wrong others, he will wrong himself. If he doesn't come across anyone to lie to, he will lie to himself in his own thoughts." ~ Ryszard Kapuściński
"Because it was enough for one of those favorites of His Distinguished Highness to issue a thoughtless decree. These young smart alecks see it, and they immediately imagine some fatal result and come running to the rescue. They start trying to mend things, straighten things out, patch things up and untangle them. And so instead of using their energy to build their own vision of the future, instead of trying to put their irresponsible, destructive fantasies into action, our malcontents had to roll up their sleeves and start untangling what the minsters had knotted up. And there's always a lot of work to untangling! So they untangle and untangle, drenched in sweat, wearing their nerves to shreds, running around, patching things up here and there, and in all this rush and overwork, in this whirlwind, their fantasies slowly evaporate from their hot heads." ~ Ryszard Kapuściński
