– Beyond each corner new directions lie in wait.
– The exit is usually where the entrance was.
– He who limps is still walking.
– In a war of ideas it is people who get killed.
– The mob shouts with one big mouth and eats with a thousand little ones.
– Even a glass eye can see its blindness.
– To whom should we marry Freedom, to make it multiply?
– I am against using death as a punishment. I am also against using it as a reward.
– You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories.
– Optimists and pessimists differ only on the date of the end of the world.

– No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
– All is in the hands of man. Therefore wash them often.
– Do not ask God the way to heaven; he will show you the hardest one.
