Favorite Josef Quotes

1. "In a lovely book called On Hope, Josef Pieper explores Thomas Aquinas' theology of hope along these lines: the hopeful person is by definition a wayfarer (viator), because the virtue of hope lies midway between the two vices of despair (desperatio) and presumption (praesumptio). What despairing persons and presumptuous persons have in common is that they aren't going anywhere, they are fixed in place: the despairing because they don't think there's anywhere to go, the presumptuous because they think they have reached the pinnacle of achievement."
Author: Alan Jacobs

4. "Sizi tutan bir sey var -bir korku, bir zaaf-, öfkenizi ifade etmenizi engelliyor. Bunun yerine yufka yürekliliginizden gurur duyuyorsunuz. Mecburen yaptiginiz seyleri erdeme dönüstürmeye çalisiyorsunuz. Duygularinizi derinlere gömüyor ve sonra da hinç hissetmediginiz için kendinizi azizlere benzetiyorsunuz. Anlayisla yaklasan doktor rolünü unutuyorsunuz; siz o rolün kendisi oluyorsunuz, kendinizi öfkelenemeyecek kadar iyi birisi gibi görünüyorsunuz. Josef, küçük bir intikam iyi bir seydir. Bastirilmis hinç insani hasta eder!"
Author: Irvin D. Yalom

Author: Irvin D. Yalom

11. "Are you the government?"He seemed surprised by the question. "Does the government fight evil?"I thought about it. For some reason, the first thing that came to mind wasn't the FBI or the justice system, but my last trip to the DMV. "Well," I said, "it can.""Lots of things can fight evil," True replied. "Cinderblocks, for example--if a Cinderblock had fallen in Josef Stalin's crib, the twentieth century might have been a bit more pleasant.(...)"
Author: Matt Ruff
12. "It was on the steamer carrying him through the Golden Gate that he happened to reach down into the hole in the lining of the right pocket of his overcoat and discover the envelope that his brother had solemnly handed to him almost a month before. It contained a single piece of paper, which Thomas had hastily stuffed into it that morning as they all were leaving the house together for the last time, by way or in lieu of expressing the feelings of love, fear, and hopefulness that his brother's escape inspired. It was the drawing of Harry Houdini, taking a calm cup of tea in the middle of the sky, that Thimas had made in his notebook during his abortive career as a librettist. Josef studied it, feeling as he sailed toward freedom as if he weighed nothing at all, as if every precious burden had been lifted from him."
Author: Michael Chabon

"I only wish it didn't reek of sulfur," Josef said, pressing up the mountainside. "I'd almost rather deal with the cold.""Well, don't let me stop you," Eli huffed, though even he looked a little green. "Who am I to stand between a man and his frostbite?"
Author: Rachel Aaron
