-We must study things we will never use, but which someone told us were important to know.

-We must have a university degree even if we never get a job in the area of knowledge we were forced to study.
...suffering occurs when we want other people to love us in the way we imagine we want to be loved, and not in the way that love should manifest itself - free and untrammeled, guiding us with its force and driving us on.
-We must do jobs we detest because we are part of an organized society, and if everyone did what they wanted to do, the world would come to a standstill.
People who are different are dangerous; they belong to another tribe; they want our lands and our women.
-We must marry, have children, reproduce the species.
-Love is only a small thing, enough for one person, and any suggestion that the heart might be larger than this is considered perverse.
-When we marry, we are authorized to take possession of the other person, body and soul.
