Walter Kaufmann
“Since the Renaissance, Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Mozart, and a host of others have shown that this religious dimension can be experienced and communicated apart from any religious context. But that is no reason for closing my heart to Job's cry, or to Jeremiah's, or to the Second Isaiah. I do not read them as mere literature; rather, I read Sophocles and Shakespeare with all my being, too.”
Walter Kaufmann, Faith of a Heretic

Oscar Wilde
“When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Milan Kundera
“The only relationship that can make both partners happy is one in which sentimentality has no place and neither partner makes any claim on the life and freedom of the other.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Ludwig van Beethoven
“It seemed unthinkable for me to leave the world forever before I had produced all that I felt called upon to produce”
Ludwig van Beethoven

Thomas Jefferson
“Every day is lost in which we do not learn something useful. Man has no nobler or more valuable possession than time.”
Thomas Jefferson
