Michel Foucault
“I don’t feel that it is necessary to know exactly what I am. The main interest in life and work is to become someone else that you were not in the beginning. If you knew when you began a book what you would say at the end, do you think that you would have the courage to write it?
What is true for writing and for love relationships is true also for life. The game is worthwhile insofar as we don’t know where it will end.”
Michel Foucault

Ingeborg Bachmann
“Lieber Paul, wenn ich mich heute nach meinen Wünschen frage, meinen wirklichen Wünschen, dann zögre ich mir Antwort zu geben, ja vielleicht bin ich sogar zur Einsicht gekommen, dass es uns nicht zusteht zu wünschen, dass wir nur ein gewisses Pensum an Arbeit zu erledigen haben, dass, was wir immer tun, ohne Wirkung ist, dass man dennoch zwischen acht Uhr früh und sechs Uhr abends so tun muss, als sei es wichtig, auf ein Blatt Papier einen Beistrich oder einen Doppelpunkt zu setzen.

Ingeborg Bachmann

Marilyn Monroe
“Die Liebe und die Arbeit sind die beiden einzigen wahren Dinge in unserem Leben. Sie gehören zusammen, sonst ist es schief. Die Arbeit ist selbst eine Form der Liebe.

Love and work are the only two real things in our lives. They belong together, otherwise it is off. Work is in itself a form of love.”
Marilyn Monroe

Walter Benjamin
“Let no thought pass incognito, and keep your notebook as strictly as the authorities keep their register of aliens.”
Walter Benjamin

Bil Keane
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
Bill Keane
