José Lezama Lima
“Heidegger sostiene que el hombre es un ser para la muerte; todo poeta, sin embargo, crea la resurrección, entona ante la muerte un hurra victorioso. Y si alguno piensa que exagero, quedará preso de los desastres, del demonio y de los círculos infernales.”
José Lezama Lima

Friedrich Nietzsche
“I can tell by my own reaction to it that this book is harmful." But let him only wait and perhaps one day he will admit to himself that this same book has done him a great service by bringing out the hidden sickness of his heart and making it visible.— Altered opinions do not alter a man’s character (or do so very little); but they do illuminate individual aspects of the constellation of his personality which with a different constellation of opinions had hitherto remained dark and unrecognizable.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Woody Allen
“Yo no quiero alcanzar la inmortalidad por mi obra. Quiero conseguirla por no morir. No quiero vivir en la memoria de mis compatriotas. Preferiría vivir en mi apartamento.”
Woody Allen

Niklas Luhmann
“El surgimiento del Estado soberano moderno basado en el monopolio de la toma de decisiones sobre el uso de la violencia física, y su inflación a un grado de complejidad que difícilmente puede controlarse, es el ejemplo más significativo de su desarrollo en el ámbito social general. Al mismo tiempo, esta teoría del poder explica el modo en que esta situación es propicia para la revolución, es decir, para el recurso de la violencia con el objeto de modificar un sistema incontrolablemente complejo, por medio de la progresión regresiva.”
Niklas Luhmann

George Bernard Shaw
“Your weak side, my diabolic friend, is that you have always been a gull: you take Man at his own valuation. Nothing would flatter him more than your opinion of him. He loves to think of himself as bold and bad. He is neither one nor the other: he is only a coward. Call him tyrant, murderer, pirate, bully; and he will adore you, and swagger about with the consciousness of having the blood of the old sea kings in his veins. Call him liar and thief; and he will only take an action against you for libel. But call him coward; and he will go mad with rage: he will face death to outface that stinging truth. Man gives every reason for his conduct save one, every excuse for his crimes save one, every plea for his safety save one: and that one is his cowardice. Yet all his civilization is founded on his cowardice, on his abject tameness, which he calls his respectability. There are limits to what a mule or an ass will stand; but Man will suffer himself to be degraded until his vileness becomes so loathsome to his oppressors that they themselves are forced to reform it.”
George Bernard Shaw
