Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “In choosing myself, I choose man.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I am not asking for sensational revelations, but I would like to sense the meaning of that minute, to feel it’s urgency...”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “We have to deal with human reality as a being which is what it is not and which is not what it is.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Everything is silent again: but it isn’t the same silence. It’s raining: tapping lightly against the frosted glass windows; if there are any more masked children in the street, the rain is going to spoil their cardboard masks.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Don’t be afraid; I’ll keep looking at you for ever and ever, without a flutter of my eyelids, and you’ll live in my gaze like a mote in a sunbeam.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Ah! Do not judge the gods, young man, they have painful secrets.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The writer is committed when he plunges to the very depths of himself with the intent to disclose, not his individuality, but his person in the complex society that conditions and supports him.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “A writer must refuse to allow himself to be transformed into an institution.”

Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “It’s just what people do when they’re getting old, when they’re sick of themselves and their life; they think of money and take care of themselves.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I enjoy feeling fastidious and aloof. I enjoy saying no, always no, and I should be afraid of any attempt to construct a finally habitable world, because I should merely have to say – Yes; and act like other people.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “An individual chooses and makes himself.”

Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “This is what I mean when I say that man is condemned to be free: condemned, because he did not create himself, yet nonetheless free, because once cast into the world, he is responsible for everything that he does.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “But I must finally realize that I am subject to these sudden transformations. The thing is that I rarely think; a crowd of small metamorphoses accumulate in me without my noticing it, and then, one fine day, a veritable revolution takes place.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “It is always more valuable to report the truth.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I am illuminated within by a diminishing light.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Those who conceal from themselves this total freedom, under the guise of solemnity, or by making deterministic excuses, I will call cowards. Others, who try to prove their existence is necessary, when man’s appearance on earth is merely contingent, I will call bastards.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Abjection is a methodological conversion, like Cartesian doubt and Husserlian epoche: it establishes the world as a closed system which consciousness regards from without, in the manner of divine understanding.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Hands don’t catch thoughts.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Man is always a wizard to man, and the social world is at first magical.”

Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “We do not wish to say only that a man is responsible for his own individuality, but that he is responsible for that of all men.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Temporality is obviously an organised structure, and these three so-called elements of time: past, present, future, must not be envisaged as a collection of ‘data’ to be added together... but as the structured moments of an original synthesis. Otherwise we shall immediately meet with this paradox: the past is no longer, the future is not yet, as for the instantaneous present, everyone knows that it is not at all: it is the limit of infinite division, like the dimensionless point.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I liked this shop very much, it has a cynical and obstinate look, it insolently recalled the rights of dirt and vermin, only two paces from the most costly church in France.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The distance between the being and the conscience is the nothing.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “It is too early to love. We will buy the right to do so by shedding blood.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Ah! yes, I know: those who see me rarely trust my word: I must look too intelligent to keep it.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Everything in my past, in my training, everything that has been most essential in my activity up to now has made me above all a man who writes, and it is too late for that to change.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I feel there are no more perfect moments. I feel it in my legs when I walk. I feel it all the time, even when I sleep. I can’t forget it. I am dazzled, uncomfortable, I can’t get used to it.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “There are two ways of destroying a people. Either condemn them en bloc or force them to repudiate the leaders they adopted. The second is the worse.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Paris was dead. More cars, more pedestrians – except at certain hours in certain quarters. We walked between the cobblestones; it appeared that we were the forgotten members of an immense exodus. A bit of provincial life was caught on the sharp angles of the capital; it remained a skeleton city, pompous and immobile, too long and too big for us: too large, the streets that we discovered as far as the eye could see, too great the distances, too vast the perspectives: we got lost.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I wanted the moments of my life to follow and order themselves like those of a life remembered.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “To forget about the others? How utterly absurd! I feel you there, in every pore. Your silence clamors in my ears. You can nail up your mouth, cut your tongue out – but you can’t prevent your being there.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “She believed in nothing. Only her scepticism kept her from being an atheist.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “And you know what wickedness is, and shame, and fear. There were days when you peered into yourself, into the secret places of your heart, and what you saw there made you faint with horror.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “All-powerful god, who am I but the fear that I inspire in others?”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess. All which I abandon, all which I give, I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away. To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Love was not something to be felt, not a particular emotion, nor yet a particular shade of feeling, it was much more like a lowering curse on the horizon, a precursor of disaster.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “And yet I am troubled; it would take so little to make the record stop: a broken spring, the whim of Cousin Adolphe. How strange it is, how moving, that this hardness should be so fragile. Nothing can interrupt it yet all can break it.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Why do you keep maintaining your ideas are right if you can’t prove them?”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The genius of Proust is the totality of the works of Proust.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “From the very fact, indeed, that I am conscious of the motives which solicit my action, these motives are already transcendent objects from my consciousness, they are outside; in vain shall I seek to cling to them: I escape from them through my very existence. I am condemned to exist forever beyond my essence, beyond the affective and rational motives of my act: I am condemned to be free.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “My memories are like coins in the devil’s purse: when you open it you find only dead leaves.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “And then, tired out by all the shouting, I always simply went to bed. Today I’m doing it to feel the pleasure you don’t yet know, of turning abruptly from friendship to love, from strength to tenderness. Tonight I love you in a way that you have not known in me: I am neither worn down by travels nor wrapped up in the desire for your presence. I am mastering my love for you and turning it inwards as a constituent element of myself.”
