Leading society to perfection

16 Aug

What is the use of time, encouragements, medals, crosses, and Monthyon prizes, if they do not lead society towards perfection. Yet man will never be perfect until he learns to create and destroy, like God; he does know how to destroy, and that is half way on the road. 

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas 

Real happiness of life

14 Aug

Those born to wealth and who have the means of gratifying every wish, know not what is the real happiness of life; just as those who have been tossed on the stormy waters of the ocean on a few frail planks can alone estimate the value of a clear and serene sky.

Quote about great criminals

3 Jun

Great criminals bear about them a kind of predestination which makes them surmount all obstacles, which makes them escape all dangers, till the moment which a wearied Providence has marked as the rock of their impious fortunes.

Revenge is an awkward passion

3 Jun

Beware !  Revenge is an awkward passion to indulge in; they who employ it find it a double-edged weapon, which, in the recoil, frequently wounds the hand that wields it.

Time quote

3 Jun

Nothing makes time pass more quickly or more shortens a journey than a thought which absorbs in itself all the faculties of the organisation of him who thinks. The external existence then resembles a sleep of which this thought is the dream. By its influence, time has no longer measure, space has no longer distance. We depart from one place and arrive at another – that is all. Of the interval passed through, nothing remains in the memory but a vague mist in which a thousand confuse images of trees, mountains, and landscapes are lost. 

The three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
