“Tell me, tutor,' I said. 'Is revenge a science, or an art?”
Mark Lawrence, Prince of Thorns

Emil Cioran
“In somn uiti drama vietii tale uiti complicatiile si obsesiile asa incat fiecare desteptare este un inceput nou de viata este o speranta noua. Viata pastreaza astfel o discontinuitate placuta care da impresia unei continue regenerari a unei renasteri permanente.”
Emil Cioran, On the Heights of Despair
