Everybody who is incapable of learning has taken to teaching.
The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.
The world is divided into two classes, those who believe the incredible, and those who do the improbable.
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
Illusion is the first of all pleasures.
Never look at what you have lost.
As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live
The only source of knowledge is experience.
Why was I born with such contemporaries?
What another would have done as well as you, do not do it. What another would have said as well as you, do not say it; what another would have written as well, do not write it. Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself-and thus make yourself indispensable.
Poetry is indispensable - if I only knew what for.
Poets are the only people to whom love is not only a crucial, but an indispensable experience, which entitles them to mistake it for a universal one.
For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication.
Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless.
Honore de Balzac
Man wants to live, but it is useless to hope that this desire will dictate all his actions.
A useless life is an early death.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Only useless things are indispensable.
If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live.
It is useless to tell one not to reason but to believe - you might as well tell a man not to wake but sleep.
The ultimate value of life depends
awareness and the power
of contemplation rather
than upon mere survival.
So long as we love, we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I should say that we are almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.
