F
One does not inhabit a country; one inhabits a language. That is our country, our fatherland -- and no other.

R
Alone, even doing nothing, you do not waste your time. You do, almost always, in company. No encounter with yourself can be altogether sterile: Something necessarily emerges, even if only the hope of some day meeting yourself again.
A
To be human is no solution, any more than ceasing to be so.
N
Torment, for some men, is a need, an appetite, and an accomplishment.
K
Speech and silence. We feel safer with a madman who talks than with one who cannot open his mouth.
