Biography - a system in which the contradictions of a human life are unified.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
Living is a constant process of deciding what we are going to do.
We do not live to think, but, on the contrary, we think in order that we may succeed in surviving.
The difficulties which I meet with in order to realize my existence are precisely what awaken and mobilize my activities, my capacities.
Order is not pressure which is imposed on society from without but an equilibrium which is set up from within.
Law is born from despair of human nature.
Hatred is a feeling which leads to the extinction of values.
Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.
We distinguish the excellent man from the common man by saying that the former is the one who makes great demands on himself, and the latter who makes no demands on himself.
