On the Heights of Despair by Emil Cioran
“As far as I am concerned, I resign from humanity. I no longer want to be, nor can still be, a man. What should I do? Work for a social and political system, make a girl miserable? Hunt for weaknesses in philosophical systems, fight for moral and esthetic ideals? It’s all too little. I renounce my humanity even though I may find myself alone. But am I not already alone in this world from which I no longer expect anything?”
Emil Cioran

Gustave Flaubert
“She loved the sea for its storms alone, cared for vegetation only when it grew here and there among ruins. She had to extract a kind of personal advantage from things and she rejected as useless everything that promised no immediate gratification — for her temperament was more sentimental than artistic, and what she was looking for was emotions, not scenery.”
Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

Friedrich Nietzsche
“There are two different types of people in the world, those who want to know, and those who want to believe.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
