The problems are solved. Monday-quotes

  1. Modern art = I could do that + Yeah, but you didn’t. Craig Damrauer
  2. Hell isn’t other people. Hell is yourself. Ludwig Wittgenstein 
  3. The life of man is of no greater importance to the universe than that of an oyster. David Hume

  1. No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions. He had money as well. Margaret Thatcher 
  2. To be independent of public opinion is the first formal condition of achieving anything great. Georg Friedrich Hegel 
  3. I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian god may exist; so may the gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But no one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of themBertrand Russell

  1. To be interested in the changing seasons is…a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring. George Santayana
  2. With a gentleman I am always a gentleman and a half, and with a fraud I try to be a fraud and a half. Otto von Bismarck 
  3. If you are not like everybody else, then you are abnormal, if you are abnormal , then you are sick. These 3 categories, not being like everybody else, not being normal and being sick are in fact very different, but have been reduced to the same thing. Michel Foucault

  1. Monsters cannot be announced. One cannot say: ‘Here are our monsters,’ without immediately turning the monsters into pets. Jacques Derrida
  2. How it is we have so much information, but know so little? Noam Chomsky
  3. Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they’re only animals. Theodor W. Adorno
