„There is no happiness without knowledge. But knowledge of happiness is unhappy; for knowing ourselves happy is knowing ourselves passing through happiness, and having to, immediatly at once, leave it behind. To know is to kill, in happiness as in everything. Not to know, though, is not to exist.“

—  Fernando Pessoa, buch Das Buch der Unruhe des Hilfsbuchhalters Bernardo Soares

Ibid., p. 328
The Book of Disquiet
Original: Não há felicidade senão com conhecimento. Mas o conhecimento da felicidade é infeliz; porque conhecer-se feliz é conhecer-se passando pela felicidade, e tendo, logo já, que deixá-la atrás. Saber é matar, na felicidade como em tudo. Não saber, porém, é não existir.

„Everything that changes, where it changes, leaves behind it an abyss.“

—  Antonio Porchia Italian Argentinian poet 1885 - 1968

„Live for something! Do good and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love, and mercy on the hearts of the thousands you come in contact with, year by year, and you will never be forgotten. Your name, your deeds, will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind, as the stars on the brow of evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven.“

—  Thomas Chalmers Scottish mathematician and a leader of the Free Church of Scotland 1780 - 1847

„My writing is quantum writing. Do you know of the quantum bullet? The quantum bullet, when it's fired, leaves not one hole but two. That's how my writing is.“

„The hardest thing to do is to write straight honest prose on human beings. First you have to know the subject; then you have to know how to write.“

—  Ernest Hemingway American author and journalist 1899 - 1961

A Letter from Cuba (1934)
Kontext: The hardest thing to do is to write straight honest prose on human beings. First you have to know the subject; then you have to know how to write. Both take a lifetime to learn, and anybody is cheating who takes politics as a way out. All the outs are too easy, and the thing itself is too hard to do.
