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

Marilynne Robinson
“I have spent my life watching, not to see beyond the world, merely to see, great mystery, what is plainly before my eyes. I think the concept of transcendence is based on a misreading of creation. With all respect to heaven, the scene of the miracle is here, among us. The eternal as an idea is much less preposterous than time, and this very fact should seize our attention.”
Marilynne Robinson, The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought

Anton Chekhov
“Any idiot can face a crisis; it's this day-to-day living that wears you out.”
Anton Chekhov

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

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
