A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on desire, sin, desires, satisfaction, certainty, virtue, and dilemma

A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on accuracy, commitment, conquest, force, persecution, police, principles, silence, and thought

Because the Nazi venom worked its way even into our thoughts, every accurate thought was a conquest; because an all-powerful police sought to force us into silence every word became as precious as a declaration of principle; because we were persecuted, each of our gestures carried the weight of a commitment.

A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on day, evil, fear, and secrets

There were the days when you peered into your self, into the secret places of your head, and what you saw there made you fear with horror. And then, next day, you didn't know what to make of it, you couldn't interpret the horror you had glimpsed the day before. Yes, you know what evil costs.
