“Sólo los tontos tienen muchas amistades. El mayor número de amigos marca el grado máximo en el dinamómetro de la estupidez.”
Pío Baroja

“¿Qué duda cabe que el mundo que conocemos es el resultado del reflejo de la parte de cosmos del horizonte sensible en nuestro cerebro? Este reflejo unido, contrastado, con las imágenes reflejadas en los cerebros de los demás hombres que han vivido y que viven, es nuestro conocimiento del mundo, es nuestro mundo. ¿Es así, en realidad, fuera de nosotros? No lo sabemos, no lo podremos saber jamás.”
