Robert Musil
“One must conform to the baseness of an age or become neurotic.”
Robert Musil

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“I am sitting with a philosopher in the garden; he says again and again 'I know that that’s a tree', pointing to a tree that is near us. Someone else arrives and hears this, and I tell him: 'This fellow isn’t insane. We are only doing philosophy.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, On Certainty

Franz Kafka
“I write differently from what I speak, I speak differently from what I think, I think differently from the way I ought to think, and so it all proceeds into deepest darkness.”
Franz Kafka

J.D. Salinger
“I’m just sick of ego, ego, ego. My own and everybody else’s. I’m sick of everybody that wants to get somewhere, do something distinguished and all, be somebody interesting. It’s disgusting.”
J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.”
Wittgenstein Ludwig
