F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.'
'How pleasant then to be insane!”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, and Other Stories

Dan C. Mihăilescu
“Una este să te formezi liber, nesățios și nărăvaș printre copaci, grădini, podgorii, livezi [...] - și, cu totul altceva să crești ca prizonier într-un cub de beton, cu tavanul lipit de creștet.”
Dan C. Mihăilescu, Plăceri vinovate și datorii împlinite: 12 confesiuni

Umberto Eco
“The person who doesn’t read lives only one life. The reader lives 5,000. Reading is immortality backwards.”
Umberto Eco

Fernando Pessoa
“We all have two lives: The true, the one we dreamed of in childhood And go on dreaming of as adults in a substratum of mist; the false, the one we love when we live with others, the practical, the useful, the one we end up by being put in a coffin.”
Fernando Pessoa

Leo Tolstoy
“Remember that there is only one important time and it is Now. The present moment is the only time over which we have dominion. The most important person is always the person with whom you are, who is right before you, for who knows if you will have dealings with any other person in the future? The most important pursuit is making that person, the one standing at your side, happy, for that alone is the pursuit of life.”
Leo Tolstoy, The Emperor's Three Questions
