There is no true love save in suffering, and in this world we have to choose either love, which is suffering, or happiness. Man is the more man – that is, the more divine – the greater his capacity for suffering, or rather, for anguish.
Man dies of cold, not of darkness.
Suffering is the substance of life and the root of personality, for it is only suffering that makes us persons.
What we believe to be the motives of our conduct are usually but the pretexts for it.
A man does not die of love or his liver or even of old age; he dies of being a man.
Consciousness is a disease.
Some people will believe anything if you whisper it to them.
The only way to give finality to the world is to give it consciousness.
Only in solitude do we find ourselves; and in finding ourselves, we find in ourselves all our brothers in solitude.
