"If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path."
"It is better to be unhappy and know the worst than to be happy in a fool’s paradise."
"I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything by using fear as the basic motivation. Interest can produce learning on a scale to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker."
"Love is a flame that burns everything other than itself.
It is the destruction of all that is false

"The history of philosophy has always been the agent of power in philosophy, and even in thought. It has played the repressor’s role: how can you think without having read Plato, Descartes, Kant and Heidegger and so-and-so’s book on them? A formidable school of intimidation which manufactures specialists in thought—but which makes those who stay outside conform all the more to this specialism which they despise. An image of thought called philosophy has been formed historically and it stops people from thinking."
