About me"Die Grenzen meiner Sprache bedeuten die Grenzen meiner Welt." -- Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-philosophicus, 5.6.

“Ik ben niet zozeer uit op een gevecht,
maar wat niet goed is, vrienden, noem ik slecht
en wat mijn tegenstanders ook bewerken,
ik ga, zolang ik leef, mijn eigen weg!”
Anton van Wilderode, Volledig dichtwerk (1999), blz. 1571.

« Point n’est besoin d’espérer pour entreprendre,
ni de réussir pour persévérer.

"Is there nothing wrong with reading only in bits and snatches, half-understanding important arguments or missing essential parts of a fascinating narrative? Nothing to worry about if we never properly understand another person’s view of a subject in all of its glorious intricacy? Implausible as it is, this seems to be what Clay is saying."
Larry Sanger, "A Defense of Tolstoy & the Individual Thinker: A Reply to Clay Shirky", Britannica Blog, July 18th, 2008.

«That such remoteness from reality and such thoughtlessness can wreak more havoc than all the evil instincts taken together which, perhaps, are inherent in man — that was, in fact, the lesson one could learn in Jerusalem. But it was a lesson, neither an explanation of the phenomenon nor a theory about it.»
Hannah Arendt, Eichmann in Jerusalem. A Report on the Banality of Evil, p. 12.

For want of me the world’s course will not fail;
When all its work is done the lie shall rot;
The truth is great and shall prevail
When none cares whether it prevail or not.

Coventry Patmore, "Magna est Veritas", in The Unknown Eros (1877).

“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt” — Bertrand Russell.

« Les foules n'ont jamais eu soif de vérités. Devant les évidences qui leur déplaisent, elles se détournent, préférant déifier l'erreur, si l'erreur les séduit. Qui sait les illusionner est aisément leur maître; qui tente de les désillusionner est toujours leur victime. »
Gustave Le Bon (1841-1931), Psychologie des foules, Paris : Alcan, 1895, VII-200 p., p. 98. (BnF)

“Mankind cannot bear much reality.” — T.S. Eliot.

« Le livre, comme livre, appartient à l'auteur, mais comme pensée, il appartient - le mot n'est pas trop vaste - au genre humain. Toutes les intelligences y ont droit. Si l'un des deux droits, le droit de l'écrivain et le droit de l'esprit humain, devait être sacrifié, ce serait, certes, le droit de l'écrivain, car l'intérêt public est notre préoccupation unique, et tous, je le déclare, doivent passer avant nous »
Victor Hugo

"In America everybody is of the opinion that he has no social superiors, since all men are equal, but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors, for, from the time of Jefferson onward, the doctrine that all men are equal applies only upwards, not downwards."
Bertrand Russell


“What happens when people realize that a promise for repayment from Uncle Sam is as trustworthy as a Mortgage-Backed bond filled with subprime properties and insured by AIG?” — David C. Calderwood (cf. Revolutionary Language).
