Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Every belief is a belief that falls short; one never wholly believes what one believes.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Every sound comes into my ears dirty because you’ve heard it on the way.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Then time started flowing again and the emptiness grew larger.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “I am illuminated within by a diminishing light.”
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: “Nothingness carries being in its heart.”
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: “When a man gets drunk he gets sentimental. That’s what I wanted to avoid.”
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: “Her smiles, her mimicries, all the words she uttered were addressed to herself through him.”
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: “This is the girl, here, this girl with a ruined look who touches me and whom I love.”
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: “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: “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 haven’t any troubles, I have some money like a gentleman of leisure, no boss, no wife, no children; I exist, that’s all. And that particular trouble is so vague, so metaphysical, that I am ashamed of it.”
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: “But for me there is neither Monday nor Sunday: there are days which pass in disorder, and then, sudden lightning like this one. Nothing has changed and yet everything is different. I can’t describe it, it’s like the Nausea and yet it’s just the opposite: at last an adventure happens to me and when I question myself I see that it happens that I am myself and that I am here; I am the one who splits in the night, I am as happy as the hero of a novel.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “There are two ways to go to the gas chamber, free and not free.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “The only being which can be called free is the being which nihilates its being.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The distance between the being and the conscience is the nothing.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Man is fully responsible for his nature, choices and lifestyle.”
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: “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: “All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other.”
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: “My memories are like coins in the devil’s purse: when you open it you find only dead leaves.”
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.”
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: “They are young and well built, they have another thirty years ahead of them. So they don’t hurry, they take their time, and they are quite right. Once they have been to bed together, they will have to find something else to conceal the enormous absurdity of their existence.”
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: “I can’t explain what I see. To anyone. There: I am quietly slipping into the water’s depths, towards fear. I am alone in the midst of these happy, reasonable voices. All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other. In Heaven’s name, why is it so important to think the same things all together.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “You’re lucky. I’m always conscious of myself – in my mind. Painfully conscious.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “Time gnaws and wears away; it separates; it flies. And by virtue of separation – by separating man from his pain or from the object of his pain – time cures.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “What a torment it is not to be rich! It gets one into such abject situations.”
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: “My passion was dead. For years it had rolled over and submerged me; now I felt empty. But that wasn’t the worst: before me, posed with a sort of indolence, was a voluminous, insipid idea. I did not see clearly what it was, but it sickened me so much I couldn’t look at it.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “The truth is that I can’t put down my pen: I think I’m going to have the Nausea and I feel as though I’m delaying it while writing. So I write whatever comes into my mind.”
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: “Unity may be achieved under a strong man, but the time comes when a people must stop looking for a savior and take responsibility for their own future.”
Jean-Paul Sartre Quote: “When she was in Djibouti and I was in Aden, and I used to go and see her for twenty-four hours, she managed to multiply the misunderstandings between us until there were exactly sixty minutes before I had to leave; sixty minutes, just long enough to make you feel the seconds passing one by one.”
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.”
