Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“That is my conviction of forty years. I am forty years old now, and you know forty years is a whole lifetime; you know it is extreme old age. To live longer than forty years is bad manners, is vulgar, immoral. Who does live beyond forty? Answer that, sincerely and honestly I will tell you who do: fools and worthless fellows. I tell all old men that to their face, all these venerable old men, all these silver-haired and reverend seniors! I tell the whole world that to its face! I have a right to say so, for I shall go on living to sixty myself. To seventy! To eighty! ...Stay, let me take breath …”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Notes from Underground

David Bowie
“People are so fucking dumb. Nobody reads anymore, nobody goes out and looks and explores the society and culture they were brought up in. People have attention spans of five seconds and as much depth as a glass of water.”
David Bowie

Thich Nhat Hanh
“Some people live as though they are already dead. There are people moving around us who are consumed by their past, terrified of their future, and stuck in their anger and jealousy. They are not alive; they are just walking corpses.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, You Are Here: Discovering the Magic of the Present Moment

Caspar David Friedrich
“You call me a misanthrope because I avoid society. You err; I love society. Yet in order not to hate people, I must avoid their company.”
Caspar David Friedrich

Marcus Aurelius
“Every living organism is fulfilled when it follows the right path for its own nature.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
