Quotes

    Nast Huertahas quoted3 years ago
    Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.
    Rodolfo Cardoso Méndezhas quoted4 years ago
    A human being in perfection ought always to preserve a calm and peaceful mind, and never to allow passion or a transitory desire to disturb his tranquillity. I do not think that the pursuit of knowledge is an exception to this rule. If the study to which you apply yourself has a tendency to weaken your affections, and to destroy your taste for those simple pleasures in which no alloy can possibly mix, then that study is certainly unlawful, that is to say, not befitting the human mind.
    Guzel Garipovahas quotedlast month
    the Sorrows of Werter, besides the interest of its simple and affecting story, so many opinions are canvassed, and so many lights thrown upon what had hitherto been to me obscure subjects, that I found in it a never-ending source of speculation and astonishment.
