Rainer Maria Rilke
“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Douglas Adams
“All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Erich Fried
“What it is

It is madness
says reason
It is what it is
says love
It is unhappiness
says caution
It is nothing but pain
says fear
It has no future
says insight
It is what it is
says love
It is ridiculous
says pride
It is foolish
says caution
It is impossible
says experience
It is what it is
says love.”
Erich Fried, Es ist was es ist. Liebesgedichte. Angstgedichte. Zorngedichte

Philip K. Dick
“No single thing abides; and all things are fucked up.”
Philip K. Dick, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer

Albert Camus
“Hayat yaşamaya değmez. Aslına bakarsanız, insan ha otuzunda ölmüş ha yetmişinde, pek önemli değildi. Çünkü, her iki halde de pek doğal ki başka erkekler de başka kadınlar da yaşayacaklardı hem de binlerce yıl. Sözün kısası, hiçbir şey böylesine açık değildi. Şimdi de olsa yirmi yıl sonra da olsa yine bendim ölecek olan”
Albert Camus, The Stranger
