More of Johan's books…
George Orwell
“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink.”
George Orwell, Politics and the English Language

Thucydides
“Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.”
Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War

Heraclitus
“Other men are unaware of what they do when they are awake just as they are forgetful of what they do when they are asleep.”
Heraclitus

François de La Rochefoucauld
“A weakling is incapable of sincerity.”
François de La Rochefoucauld, Maxims

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Wisdom—seems to the rabble a kind of escape, a means and a trick for getting well out of a wicked game. But the genuine philosopher—as it seems to us, my friends?—lives 'unphilosophically' and 'unwisely,' above all imprudently, and feels the burden and the duty of a hundred attempts and temptations of life—he risks himself constantly, he plays the wicked game.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
