“First, we do not know what is the Truth. Secondly, we usually would not like to know the Truth unless we are absolutely compelled to: i.e. when we are no longer able to be ignorant of it, so we doubt & doubt & doubt until at the end we find doubt to be harder and worse than facing the truth and bearing with it. Thirdly, because knowing the truth would cost us a change in our habits: death itself is not that hard if it was not a change of what we are used to.”

“Will is like a sword rusted by neglect and sharpened by beating and use”

“I do not read for I have renounced life, I read because one life is just not enough for me.”
