    Alexander Pushkin
    “I loved you: and, it may be, from my soul
    The former love has never gone away,
    But let it not recall to you my dole;
    I wish not sadden you in any way.

    I loved you silently, without hope, fully,
    In diffidence, in jealousy, in pain;
    I loved you so tenderly and truly,
    As let you else be loved by any man. ”
    Alexander Pushkin

    James Baldwin
    “I don't like people who like me because I'm a Negro; neither do I like people who find in the same accident grounds for contempt. I love America more than any other country in the world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually. I think all theories are suspect, that the finest principles may have to be modified, or may even be pulverized by the demands of life, and that one must find, therefore, one's own moral center and move through the world hoping that this center will guide one aright. I consider that I have many responsibilities, but none greater than this: to last, as Hemingway says, and get my work done.
    I want to be an honest man and a good writer.”
    James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son

    Catherynne M. Valente, Deathless

  • #11
    Franz Kafka
    “Altogether, I think we ought to read only books that bite and sting us. If the book we are reading doesn’t shake us awake like a blow to the skull, why bother reading it in the first place? So that it can make us happy, as you put it? Good God, we’d be just as happy if we had no books at all; books that make us happy we could, in a pinch, also write ourselves. What we need are books that hit us like a most painful misfortune, like the death of someone we loved more than we love ourselves, that make us feel as though we had been banished to the woods, far from any human presence, like suicide. A book must be the ax for the frozen sea within us. That is what I believe.”
    Franz Kafka

    John Stuart Mill
    “I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires, rather than in attempting to satisfy them.”
    John Stuart Mill

    Alan Moore, Watchmen

    Benoît B. Mandelbrot
    “The brain highlights what it imagines as patterns; it disregards contradictory information. Human nature yearns to see order and hierarchy in the world. It will invent it where it cannot find it.”
    Benoît B. Mandelbrot, The (Mis)Behavior of Markets

    Jorge Luis Borges

    After some time, you learn the subtle difference between
    holding a hand
    and imprisoning a soul;
    You learn that love does not equal sex,
    and that company does not equal security,
    and you start to learn….
    That kisses are not contracts and gifts are not promises,
    and you start to accept defeat with the head up high
    and open eyes,
    and you learn to build all roads on today,
    because the terrain of tomorrow is too insecure for plans…
    and the future has its own way of falling apart in half.

    And you learn that if it’s too much
    even the warmth of the sun can burn.

    So you plant your own garden and embellish your own soul,
    instead of waiting for someone to bring flowers to you.

    And you learn that you can actually bear hardship,
    that you are actually strong,
    and you are actually worthy,
    and you learn and learn…and so every day.

    Over time you learn that being with someone
    because they offer you a good future,
    means that sooner or later you’ll want to return to your past.

    Over time you comprehend that only who is capable
    of loving you with your flaws, with no intention of changing you
    can bring you all happiness.

    Over time you learn that if you are with a person
    only to accompany your own solitude,
    irremediably you’ll end up wishing not to see them again.

    Over time you learn that real friends are few
    and whoever doesn’t fight for them, sooner or later,
    will find himself surrounded only with false friendships.

    Over time you learn that words spoken in moments of anger
    continue hurting throughout a lifetime.

    Over time you learn that everyone can apologize,
    but forgiveness is an attribute solely of great souls.

    Over time you comprehend that if you have hurt a friend harshly
    it is very likely that your friendship will never be the same.

    Over time you realize that despite being happy with your friends,
    you cry for those you let go.

    Over time you realize that every experience lived,
    with each person, is unrepeatable.

    Over time you realize that whoever humiliates
    or scorns another human being, sooner or later
    will suffer the same humiliations or scorn in tenfold.

    Over time you learn to build your roads on today,
    because the path of tomorrow doesn’t exist.

    Over time you comprehend that rushing things or forcing them to happen
    causes the finale to be different form expected.

    Over time you realize that in fact the best was not the future,
    but the moment you were living just that instant.

    Over time you will see that even when you are happy with those around you,
    you’ll yearn for those who walked away.

    Over time you will learn to forgive or ask for forgiveness,
    say you love, say you miss, say you need,
    say you want to be friends, since before
    a grave, it will no longer make sense.

    But unfortunately, only over time…”
    Jorge Luis Borges
