„One cannot live through a long stretch of years without forming some philosophy of life.“

—  Clarence Darrow, The Story of My Life (1932), Context: One cannot live through a long stretch of years without forming some philosophy of life. As one journeys along he gains experiences and even some ideas. Accumulated opinions and philosophy may be more important to others than the bare facts about how he lived, so my ambition is not so much to relate the occurrences as to record the ideas that life has forced me to accept; and, after all, thoughts, impressions and feelings are really life itself. I should like to think that these reflections might make existence a trifle easier for some of those who may chance to read this story. Ch. 1 "Before The Beginning"

„Characters have a way of taking on a life on their own, expressing themselves in the simple philosophy of their times, and expressing beliefs acquired through living, working, and being.“

—  Louis L'Amour Novelist, short story writer 1908 - 1988
Context: Characters have a way of taking on a life on their own, expressing themselves in the simple philosophy of their times, and expressing beliefs acquired through living, working, and being. Once characters are established, they become their own persons and the ideas of the characters are such ideas as they might have acquired in the circumstances of their daily existence. Preface, in A Trail of Memories : The Quotations Of Louis L'Amour (1988) by Angelique L'Amour
