Philip Roth
“The only obsession everyone wants: 'love.' People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think you're whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. You're whole, and then you're cracked open. ”
Philip Roth, The Dying Animal
tags: love

Milan Kundera
“We’ve known for a long time that it was no longer possible to overturn this world, nor reshape it, nor head off its dangerous headlong rush. There’s been only one possible resistance: to not take it seriously.”
Milan Kundera, The Festival of Insignificance

“On the whole, their message to their students remained steady: that science was good and metaphysics was bad. As Neurath put it to Feigl in 1938, “what we have in common will remain; as products of their time, the differences will fade.”
David Edmonds, The Murder of Professor Schlick: The Rise and Fall of the Vienna Circle

George Orwell
“A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats.”
George Orwell, All Art is Propaganda: Critical Essays

“Nejčastěji mě iritují ti, kdo napadají biskupy, ale zároveň se nechají ošálit analytiky cenných papírů - ti, kdo si brousí skepticismus na náboženství, ale nikoliv už na ekonomech, sociálních vědcích a podvodných statisticích.”
