Quien renuncia a la aventura de vivir debe sofocar en sí mismo el deseo que lo impulsa a ello, es decir que debe llevar a cabo una especie de suicidio.

Carl Jung - Wandlungen und Symbole der Libido

Is a useful and convenient social convention
Which must sometimes broken. We must also remember
That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger."

- T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party (via bookmania)

"We must never forget that human motives are generally far more complicated than we are apt to suppose, and that we can very rarely accurately describe the motives of another."
