1. 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.
2. Mother used to say that however miserable one is, there’s always something to be thankful for. And each morning, when the sky brightened and light began to flood my cell, I agreed with her.
3. I can't go on, I'll go on.
4. Perhaps love is a minor madness. And as with madness, it's unendurable alone. The one person who can relieve us is of course the sole person we cannot go to: the one we love. So instead we seek out allies, even among strangers and wives, fellow patients who, if they can't touch the edge of our particular sorrow, have felt something that cuts nearly as deep.

5. Seeking what is true is not seeking what is desirable.
6. Whether we like it or not, the one justification for the existence of all religions is death, they need death as much as we need bread to eat.
7. The road to creativity passes so close to the madhouse and often detours or ends there.
Friedrich Nietzsche Quote - You look up when you wish to be exalted....
8. You look up when you wish to be exalted. And I look down because I am exalted.
9. Part of being of a true existentialist is wanting to be what we make ourselves be by the way we choose to act, as opposed to making excuses for the way we act and regretting it.
10. Ama bardağımın dibinde biram ılıksa, aynada koyu renkli lekeler varsa, fazlalıksam; en içten ve en katışıksız acım, ayıbalığı gibi, hem bir yığın et hem gepgeniş bir deriyle ve insanın içine dokunan ıslak, ama kötülük dolu gözlerle sürüklenip hantallaşıyorsa bu benim kabahatim mi?
11. Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.
12. Our greatest challenge today...is to couple conviction with doubt. By conviction, I mean some pragmatically developed faith, trust, or centeredness; and by doubt I mean openness to the ongoing changeability, mystery, and fallibility of the conviction.
13. To stay or to go, it amounted to the same thing.
Kurt Vonnegut Quote - Take it moment by moment, and you will find...
14. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I’ve said before, bugs in amber.
15. Having just enough life to enjoy being dead.
16. I wonder if being sane means disregarding the chaos that is life, pretending only an infinitesimal segment of it is reality.
17. Perhaps the Creator of this strange place knows us better than we know ourselves. Perhaps humanity was meant to eternally ponder the purpose and importance of our own existence. If we were assured of either, we’d be intolerable creatures.
18. The priest therefore saw what the anchorite could not. That God needs no witness. Neither to himself nor against. The truth is rather that if there were no God then there could be no witness for there could be no identity to the world but only each man's opinion of it. The priest saw that there is no man who is elect because there is no man who is not. To God every man is a heretic.
19. It is only through us that God lives. When we abandon him, he dies.
20. I can always choose, but I ought to know that if I do not choose, I am still choosing.
21. Without knowledge of what I am and why I am here, it is impossible to live, and since I cannot know that, I cannot live either. In an infinity of time, in an infinity of matter, and an infinity of space a bubble-organism emerges while will exist for a little time and then burst, and that bubble am I.
22. At the end of time I want my art to stand up and my soul to bow down.
23. Oh threats of Hell and Hopes of Paradise!One thing at least is certain - This Life flies;One thing is certain and the rest is Lies -The Flower that once has blown forever dies.
24. He was free, free in every way, free to behave like a fool or a machine, free to accept, free to refuse, free to equivocate; to marry, to give up the game, to drag this death weight about with him for years to come. He could do what he liked, no one had the right to advise him, there would be for him no Good or Evil unless he thought them into being.
25. Existentialism's first move is to make every man aware of what he is and to make the full responsibility of his existence rest on him.
26. There is no unmoving mover behind the movement. It is only movement. It is not correct to say that life is moving, but life is movement itself. Life and movement are not two different things. In other words, there is no thinker behind the thought. Thought itself is the thinker. If you remove the thought, there is no thinker to be found.
27. The desire for a strong faith is not the proof of a strong faith, rather the opposite. If one has it one may permit oneself the beautiful luxury of skepticism: one is secure enough, fixed enough for it.
28. If you want good luck; you must go out there and search for that luck!! Because luck is waiting for you to look for it.

29. Among all the creatures of creation, the gods favor us: We are the only ones who can empathize with their problems.
30. Sky is not a limit for me; because I have no limit for myself in life. Because life is a world full of risk taking and possibilities. No matter how hard or easy life is; I will always find a way to enjoy myself; even in the mist of circumstances; because problems is a sense of adventure in sheep's clothing.
31. Au milieu de l'hiver, j'ai découvert en moi un invincible été.
32. [E]very man ought to say to himself, "Am I really the kind of man who has the right to act in such a way that humanity might guide itself by my actions?
33. In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the haughtiest and most mendacious minute of "world history"- yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.
34. Sometimes I think it is my mission to bring faith to the faithless, and doubt to the faithful.
35. Il n'y a de réalité que dans l'action.(There is no reality except in action.)
Simone de Beauvoir Quote - Today, however, we are having a hard time...
36. Today, however, we are having a hard time living because we are so bent on outwitting death.
37. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

38. Which of us has not felt that the character we are reading in the printed page is more real than the person standing beside us?
39. Each suburban wife struggles with it alone. As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night- she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question-- 'Is this all?
40. There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.
41. I took a test in Existentialism. I left all the answers blank and got 100.
42. The worst part of writing fiction is the fear of wasting your life behind a keyboard. The idea that, dying, you'll realize you only lived on paper. Your only adventures were make-believe, and while the world fought and kissed, you sat in some dark room masturbating and making money.

44. It is suicide to be abroad. But what it is to be at home, ... what it is to be at home? A lingering dissolution.
45. It is interesting to note how many of the great scientific discoveries begin as myths.
46. We are gods with anuses.
47. I thought of the people before me who had looked down at the river and gone to sleep beneath it. I wondered about them. I wondered how they had done it--it, the physical act.I simply wondered about the dead because their days had ended and I did not know how I would get through mine.
48. What matters creative endless toil, When, at a snatch, oblivion ends the coil?
49. J'ai lu les postmodernistes avec un certain intérêt avec même admiration. Mais quand je les lis, j'ai toujours cet horrible sentiment lancinant que quelque chose d'absolument essentiel est oublié. Plus on dit qu'une personne est un produit social, ou un confluent de forces ou fragmentée, ou marginalisée et plus on ouvre tout un nouveau monde d'excuses.
50. What gave you this idea of an imperfect god?''I don't know. It seems quite feasible to me. That is the only god I could imagine believing in, a god whose passion is not a redemption, who saves nothing, fulfills no purpose--a god who simply is.
