Quotes

Civilisation advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking about them. (Alfred Whitehead)

Give a man a mask, and he will show you his true face. (Oscar Wilde)

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. (Annie Dillard)

I am willing to take as much time as needed between projects to find my next thing. But I always want it to be a project that, if successful, will make the rest of my career look like a footnote. (Sam Altman)

I loved her, and sometimes, she loved me too. (Pablo Neruda)

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. (Henry David Thoreau)

One must Learn to Love (...) (Friedrich Nietzsche)

Someone once told me the definition of Hell: On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.(Anonymous)

The fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody. (Jean-Jacques Rousseau)

The tragedy of old age is not that one is old, but that one is young. (Oscar Wilde)

They fear the higher self because when it speaks, it speaks demandingly. (Friedrich Nietzsche)

We ought not to be embarrassed of appreciating the truth and of obtaining it wherever it comes from, even if it comes from races distant and nations different from us. Nothing should be dearer to the seeker of truth than the truth itself, and there is no deterioration of the truth, nor belittling either of one who speaks it or conveys it. (Al-Kindi)
