The Idiot

  • ABD OUhas quoted3 years ago
    If people don’t learn by experience, they never understand.
  • Christabelle Adelinehas quoted8 years ago
    I used to watch the line where earth and sky met, and longed to go and seek there the key of all mysteries, thinking that I might find there a new life, perhaps some great city where life should be grander and richer—and then it struck me that life may be grand enough even in a prison.

    How can I possibly be so when I know myself that I am considered one?

    “So enough of this nonsense; it’s time we faced the truth. All this continental life, all this Europe of yours, and all the trash about ‘going abroad’ is simply foolery, and it is mere foolery on our part to come. Remember what I say, my friend; you’ll live to agree with me yourself.”

    something serious and learned.

    I have suffered — there was a catastrophe. I suffered without a trial; I had no trial.
  • Ree Teshhas quoted7 months ago
    A fool with a heart and no brains is just as unhappy as a fool with brains and no heart. I am one and you are the other, and therefore both of us suffer, both of us are unhappy.
