- Remembering is only a new form of suffering.
- The worst thing in love is that you can not manage anything without a counterpart.
- The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he does not exist.
- Work is not as boring as leisure.
- Strangeness is a necessary ingredient in beauty.
