Hermann Hesse
“Yes, what we are doing is probably mad, and probably it is good and necessary all the same. It is not a good thing when man overstrains his reason and tries to reduce to rational order matters that are susceptible of rational treatment. Then there arise ideals such as those of the Americans or of the Bolsheviks. Both are extraordinarily rational, and both lead to a frightful oppression and impoverishment of life, because they simplify it so crudely. The likeness of man, once a high ideal, is in process of becoming a machine-made article. It is for madmen like us, perhaps, to ennoble it again.”
Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf

Oscar Wilde
“To get into the best society, nowadays, one has either to feed people, amuse people, or shock people - that is all!”
Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance

Milan Kundera
“Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding.”
Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

Dr. Seuss
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!
