Whoever is new to power is always harsh.
No true believer could be intolerant or a persecutor. If I were a magistrate and the law carried the death penalty against atheists, I would begin by sending to the stake whoever denounced another.
Whoever feels predestined to see and not to believe will find all believers too noisy and pushy: he guards against them.
As I see it, whoever’s doing the inventing is also doing most of the learning – and probably having most of the fun.
Whoever blushes is already guilty; true innocence is ashamed of nothing.
Whoever despises himself nonetheless respects himself as one who despises.
Whoever does not have a good father should procure one.
Whoever places his trust into a system will soon be without a home. While you are building your third story, the two lower ones have already been dismantled.
Whoever speaks of Europe is wrong: it is a geographical expression.
Whoever benefits his enemy with straightforward intention that man’s enemies will soon fold their hands in devotion.
