Franz Kafka
“All language is but a poor translation.”
Franz Kafka

Bertrand Russell
“I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian god may exist; so may the gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But no one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of them.”
Bertrand Russell, Why I Am Not a Christian and Other Essays on Religion and Related Subjects

Ambrose Bierce
“Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.”
Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil's Dictionary

Samuel Beckett
“All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho

Herman Melville
“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”
Herman Melville
