Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The cards fall on the woollen cloth, spinning. The hands with ringed fingers come and pick them up, scratching the cloth with their nails. The hands make white splotches on the cloth, they look puffed up and dusty. Other cards fall, the hands go and come. What an odd occupation: it doesn’t look like a game or a rite, or a habit. I think they do it to pass the time, nothing more. But time is too large, it can’t be filled up. Everything you plunge into it is stretched and disintegrates.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I would like to see the truth clearly before it is too late.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “But I don’t see anything anymore: I can search the past in vain, I can only find these scraps of images and I am not sure what they represent, whether they are memories or just fiction.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The existent individual, as Kierkegaard defines him, is first of all he who is in an infinite relationship with himself and has an infinite interest in himself and his destiny. Secondly, the existent individual always feels himself to be in Becoming, with a task before him;.”
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: “So gather me up, dear, fold me to your heart – and you’ll see how nice I can be.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Still, somewhere in the depths of ourselves we all harbor an ashamed, unsatisfied melancholy that quietly awaits a funeral.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “These young people amaze me; drinking their coffee, they tell clear, plausible stories. If you ask them what they did yesterday, they don’t get flustered; they tell you all about it in a few words. If I were in their place, I’d start stammering. It’s true that for a long time now nobody has bothered how I spend my time. When you live alone, you even forget what it is to tell a story : plausibility disappears at the same time as friends.”
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: “One always dies too soon – or too late. And yet one’s whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are – your life, and nothing else.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “This is the girl, here, this girl with a ruined look who touches me and whom I love.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “In any case, if you ever leave me with a handsome man, do not tell me that you trust me because, let me warn you: that is not what will prevent me from deceiving you, if I want to. On the contrary.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “From these few observations we can already conclude that the real is never beautiful. Beauty is a value applicable only to the imaginary and which means the negation of the world in its essential structure.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “What men have in common is not a “nature” but a condition, that is, an ensemble of limits and restrictions: the inevitability of death, the necessity of working for a living, of living in a world already inhabited by other men.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I shall have to get used all over again to speaking to people without touching them.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I took everything as seriously as if I were immortal.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Ah! How I hate the crimes of the new generation: they are dry and sterile as darnel.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other.”
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: “Her smiles, her mimicries, all the words she uttered were addressed to herself through him.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “But I can’t see anything any more: however much I search the past I can only retrieve scraps of images and I am not sure what they represent, nor whether they are remembered or invented.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I do not cease to experience my being-for-others; my possibilities do not cease to “die”, nor do the distances cease to unfold toward me in terms of the stairway where somebody “could” be, in terms of this dark corner where a human presence “could” hide. Better yet, if I tremble at the slightest noise, if each creak announces to me a look, this is because I am already in the state of being-looked-at.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “What a torment it is not to be rich! It gets one into such abject situations.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The only being which can be called free is the being which nihilates its being.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Every existing thing is born without reason, prolongs itself out of weakness and dies by chance. I leaned back and closed my eyes. But the images, forewarned, immediately leaped up and filled my closed eyes with existences: existence is a fullness which man can never abandon. Strange.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Aku suka menyadari betapa kerasnya buku bertahan, tidak pernah mau takluk begitu saja padaku; aku jadi terpedaya, capai, tetapi aku amat menikmati ambiguitas posisiku: “mengerti tetapi tidak mengerti”.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “We still have not defined the intellectual yet: all we have are technicians of practical knowledge who either accommodate themselves to their contradiction or manage to avoid suffering from it. But when one of them becomes aware of the fact that despite the universality of his work it serves only particular interests, then his awareness of this contradiction – what Hegel called an ‘unhappy consciousness’ – is precisely what characterizes him as an intellectual.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The Nausea has not left me and I don’t believe it will leave me so soon; but I no longer have to bear it, it is no longer an illness or a passing fit: it is I.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “At the same time, I learned that you always lose. Only the rascals think they win.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “It is the reflection of my face. Often in these lost days I study it: I can understand nothing of this face. The faces of others have some sense, some direction. Not mine. I cannot even decide whether it is handsome or ugly. I think it is ugly because I have been told so. But it doesn’t strike me. At heart, I am even shocked that anyone can attribute qualities of this kind to it, as if you called a clod of earth or a block of stone beautiful or ugly.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “If existence really does precede essence, there is no explaining things away by reference to a fixed and given human nature. In other words, there is no determinism, man is free, man is freedom. On the other hand, if God does not exist, we find no values or commands to turn to which legitimize our conduct. So, in the bright realm of values, we have no excuse behind us, nor justification before us. We are alone, with no excuses.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The sun was clear and diaphanous like white win. Its light barely touched the moving figures, gave them no shadow, no relief: faces and hands made spots of pale gold.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I get up. I move through this pale light; I see it change beneath my hands and on the sleeves of my coat: I cannot describe how much it disgusts me.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Only he who knows how to speak can be silent.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “When a man gets drunk he gets sentimental. That’s what I wanted to avoid.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “In life man commits himself and draws his own portrait, outside of which there is nothing. No doubt this thought may seem harsh to someone who has not made a success of his life. But on the other hand, it helps people to understand that reality alone counts, and that dreams, expectations and hopes only serve to define a man as a broken dream, aborted hopes, and futile expectations.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The recruit who reports for active duty at the beginning of the war can in some instances be afraid of death, but more often he is ‘afraid of being afraid’; that is, he is filled with anguish before himself.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.” – Jean-Paul Sartre.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “La mayor parte del tiempo, al no unirse a palabras, mis pensamientos quedan en la niebla. Dibujan formas claras y agradables, se disipan; en seguida las olvido.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Perhaps it is impossible to understand one’s own face. Or perhaps it is because I am a single man? People who live in society have learned how to see themselves in mirrors as they appear to their friends. I have no friends. Is that why my flesh is so naked?”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I realized that there was no half-way house between non-existence and this flaunting abundance. If you existed, you had to exist all the way, as far as mouldiness, bloatedness, obscenity were concerned.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Everything that burns, everything that rips me apart, I want to suffer with my body. I’d rather have a hundred wounds, whips, poisons – than this kind of suffering in the head, this phantom of suffering, which touches me softly and caresses me without ever really hurting.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Existence is a fullness which man can never abandon.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Be self-indulgent, and those who are also self-indulgent will like you. Tear your neighbor to pieces, and the other neighbors will laugh. But if you beat your soul, all souls will cry out.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Giacometti knows that space is a cancer on being, and eats everything; to sculpt, for him, is to take the fat off space, he compresses space, so as to drain off its exteriority.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Every belief is a belief that falls short; one never wholly believes what one believes.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I wanted to be missed, like water, like bread, like air, by all other people in all other places.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Her eyes stare at me but she seems not to see me; she looks as though she were lost in her suffering.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Neither sad nor gay is the desert – a boundless waste of sand under a burning waste of sky.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Revolutionary man must be a contingent being, unjustifiable but free, entirely immersed in the society that oppresses him, but capable of transcending this society by his effort to change it. Idealism mystifies him in that it binds him by rights and values that are already given; it conceals from him his power to devise roads of his own. But materialism also mystifies him, by depriving him of his freedom. The revolutionary philosophy must be a philosophy of transcendence.”
