“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy - in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.”

- Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein

There are no happy endings in history, only crisis points that pass.

The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov (via thusreluctant)

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”

- Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

No noble and exalted life exists, without knowledge of devils and demons, and without continual struggle against them.

—Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game (via undiscoveredpsyche)

“Don’t blame you for trying to run away from yourself,” said Confido, “but it can’t be done - not even in a Buick.”

- Look at the Birdie by Kurt Vonnegut

Man overcomes himself, affirms himself and realizes himself in the struggle toward the summit, toward the absolute. In the extreme tension of the struggle, on the frontier of death, the universe disappears and drops away beneath us. Space, time, fear, suffering no longer exist. Everything then becomes quite simple. As on the crest of a wave, or in the heart of a cyclone, we are strangely calm — not the calm of emptiness, but the heart of action itself.

Lucien Devies, Annapurna
