“Better to die on one’s feet than to live on one’s knees.”
– Jean-Paul Sartre
“I don’t think there is any truth. There are only points of view. “
“Worse than not realizing the dreams of your youth would be to have been young and never dreamed at all.”
– Jean Genet
“What transforms this world is — knowledge. Do you see what I mean? Nothing else can change anything in this world. Knowledge alone is capable of transforming the world, while at the same time leaving it exactly as it is. When you look at the world with knowledge, you realize that things are unchangeable and at the same time are constantly being transformed.”
— Yukio Mishima
Instead of concentrating on why we can’t do a thing, we would be wise to change our “Yes, but…” attitude to a more positive one. Saying “yes” means I really do want to change my life for the better.
True intimacy with another human being can only be experienced when you have found true peace within yourself.
-Angela L. Wozniak
