A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on books, culture, projects, and purpose

All the same, they [books] do serve some purpose. Culture doesn't save anything or anyone, it doesn't justify. But it's a product of man: he projects himself into it, he recognizes himself in it; that critical mirror alone offers him his image.

Jean-Paul Sartre (1905 - 1980)
