Benjamin Lupton and 13 other people liked Chris's review of The Ego and Its Own :
The Ego and Its Own by Max Stirner
"The Ego And His Own would be more properly titled The Unique And Its Property. Like a lot of German Philosophy books, the English translation does not do it justice.

Even though this book was written when Nietzsche was a child, Stirner goes far bey..." Read more of this review »

The Ego and Its Own by Max Stirner
“Where the world comes in my way—and it comes in my way everywhere—I consume it to quiet the hunger of my egoism. For me you are nothing but—my food, even as I too am fed upon and turned to use by you. We have only one relation to each other, that of usableness, of utility, of use. We owe each other nothing, for what I seem to owe you I owe at most to myself. If I show you a cheery air in order to cheer you likewise, then your cheeriness is of consequence to me, and my air serves my wish; to a thousand others, whom I do not aim to cheer, I do not show it.”
Max Stirner

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
“Perhaps what I am about to say will appear strange to you gentlemen, socialists, progressives, humanitarians as you are, but I never worry about my neighbor, I never try to protect society which does not protect me -- indeed, I might add, which generally takes no heed of me except to do me harm -- and, since I hold them low in my esteem and remain neutral towards them, I believe that society and my neighbor are in my debt.”
Alexandre Dumas
The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker
"I contend that there are two Steven Pinkers. Pinker 1 is an eloquent, witty, and insightful writer on the issues of cognitive psychology and linguistics who has the rare talent of making his subjects accessible and appealing to academic and lay au..." Read more of this review »

Pinker is an incredibly muddled thinker. I get that this book called out a lot of inconsistencies in others at the time of its publication, which is good, but that isn't a credit to Pinker, that is just a discredit to those he calls out. Pinker occas ...more

Henry David Thoreau
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
Henry David Thoreau

Oscar Wilde
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
Oscar Wilde

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.”
Oscar Wilde

Hermann Hesse
“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian. Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

Oscar Wilde
“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
Oscar Wilde
