man

A Quote by Antonin Artaud on madman, authenticity, man, human, asylum, and society

"And what is an authentic madman? It is a man who preferred to become mad, in the socially accepted sense of the word, rather than forfeit a certain superior idea of human honor. So society has strangled in its asylums all those it wanted to get rid of or protect itself from, because they refused to become its accomplices in certain great nastinesses. For a madman is also a man whom society did not want to hear and whom it wanted to prevent from uttering certain intolerable truths."

Antonin Artaud (1896 - 1948)

A Quote by Kedar on nobility, selfishness, man, purity, action, happiness, god, vanity, uqv theory, and philosophy

Every noble action is selfish. Some selfish actions are nobler than others. But they are all selfish. And as such there can be no action purely noble anyway. Even the nobility in God's great philosophical intentions is bounded by his vanity.

A Quote by Alani on snow, winter, spring, wise, man, bored, life, words, quote, chinese, and boots

a wise man once asked,

"When the snow melts what do you do?"

"Stay inside and wish it were spring..." replied the girl.

After slapping himself on his forehead he sighed and replied,

"You avoid the yellow snow..." he said pointing to her boots now sunken in yellowish substance.

I speculate that this is the best of all possible worlds, for philosophy is the best of humanity, and this world is the best philosophically.
