Immanuel Kant
“Mathematics, natural science, laws, arts, even morality, etc. do not completely fill the soul; there is always a space left over reserved for pure and speculative reason, the emptiness of which prompts us to seek in vagaries, buffooneries, and mysticism for what seems to be employment and entertainment, but what actually is mere pastime undertaken in order to deaden the troublesome voice of reason, which, in accordance with its nature, requires something that can satisfy it and does not merely subserve other ends or the interests of our inclinations.”
Immanuel Kant, Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics

Friedrich Nietzsche
“The melancholy of everything completed!”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

William Gaddis
“Justice? -- You get justice in the next world. In this one you have the law.”
William Gaddis, A Frolic of His Own

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“We are struggling with language.
We are engaged in a struggle with language.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Culture and Value
