Pessimism of the spirit; optimism of the will.
I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.
The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned.
To tell the truth is revolutionary.
I turn and turn in my cell like a fly that doesn’t know where to die.
All men are intellectuals… but not all men have in society the function of intellectuals.
