The important thing is not to lie to yourself. He who lies to himself and listens to his own lies reaches a state which he no longer recognizes truth either in himself and others.

Having ceased to respect everyone, he stops loving, and in the absence of love, in order to occupy and divert himself, he abandons himself to passions and gratifications of coarse pleasures until his vices bring him down to the level of bestiality, and all on account of his being constantly false both to himself and to others.

There seems to be a deep-rooted tendency in the human mind to seek...something that persists through change.

Central is the faith that beneath the apparent multiplicity and confusion of the universe around us there exists a fundamental simplicity and stability which reason may discover.
