THE SLEEP OF REASON

“When you talk to yourself, who are you actually talking to?”

“Nobody seems to ask the question what words actually are and what exactly their relationship is to the human nervous system.”

“When I become death, death is the seed from which I grow.”

“The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts.”

“Cowardice is the most terrible of vices.”

“Everything passes away-suffering,pain, blood, hunger,pestilence. The sword will pass away too, but the stars will remain when the shadows of our presence and our deeds have vanished from the Earth. There is no man who does not know that. Why, then, will we not turn our eyes toward the stars? Why?”

“Why try to pursue what is completed?”

“Am I alive and a reality, or am I but a dream?”

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”

“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.”

“Do not wait for the last judgment. It comes every day.”

“don’t hide the madness.”

“Everybody’s serious but me.”
