My guiding principle is this guilt is never to be doubted,
Evil is whatever distracts
I have the true feeling of myself only when I am unbearably unhappy.

The Beloved gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.
My "fear" is my substance, and probably the best part of me
The spirit becomes free only when it ceases to be a support

In theory there is a possibility of perfect happiness, to believe in the indestructible element within one, and not to strive towards it.

The history of mankind is the instant between two strides taken by a traveler.

Hiding places there are innumerable, escape is only one, but possibilities of escape, again, are as many as hiding places.

In argument similes are like songs in love; they describe much, but prove nothing.

Idleness is the beginning of all vice, the crown of all virtues.
