Franz Kafka
“... it is, after all, not necessary to fly right into the middle of the sun, but it is necessary to crawl to a clean little spot on Earth where the sun sometimes shines and one can warm oneself a little.”
Franz Kafka, Letter to His Father

Jean-Paul Sartre
“Do you think that I count the days? There is only one day left, always starting over: it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

Jorge Luis Borges
“The years go by, and I've told the story so many times that I'm not sure anymore whether I actually remember it or whether I just remember the words I tell it with.”
Jorge Luis Borges, The Book of Sand and Shakespeare's Memory

Alan W. Watts
“I have always been fascinated by the law of reversed effort. Sometimes I call it the “backwards law.” When you try to stay on the surface of the water, you sink; but when you try to sink, you float. When you hold your breath, you lose it—which immediately calls to mind an ancient and much neglected saying, “Whosoever would save his soul shall lose it.”
Alan W. Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity

Michel Houellebecq
“Anything can happen in life, especially nothing.”
Michel Houellebecq, Platform
