The experience of each new age requires a new confession, and the world seems always waiting for its poet.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Literature is a picture, that is in a certain way a picture and a mirror; the expression of passion, a kind of subtle criticism, an exhortation to edification.

Fyodor Dostoevsky


Philosophy is not something with which our mind, without its own agency, is originally and by nature imbued. It is throughout a work of freedom.

Friedrich Schelling


If only it were possible for us to see farther than our knowledge reaches, and even a little beyond the outworks of our presentiment, perhaps we would bear our sadnesses with greater trust than we have in our joys.

Rainer Maria Rilke


To stand on one leg and prove God’s existence is a very different thing from going down on one’s knees and thanking him.
