Some of my favourite sentences

“Φίλος μὲν Ἔντμουντ, φιλτέρα δὲ ἡ ἀλήθεια” – Martin Heidegger (in his sleep)

“Gelassenheit is not for assholes” -Meister Schreckhaft

“Nur noch eine Apoptose kann uns retten” – Martyr Heineken

“I dance after you, I follow wherever your traces linger. Where are you? Give me your hand! Or only one finger!” -Friedrich Nietzsche [on the truth of life]

“Χρόνια, σκλαβκιές ατέλειωτες
τον πάτσον τζιαι τον κλώτσον τους.
Εμείς τζαμαί:
Ελιές τζιαι τερατσιές
πάνω στον ρότσον τους!”
-Kώστας Μόντης

“Aquí en la isla
el mar
y cuánto mar
se sale de sí mismo
a cada rato,
dice que sí, que no,
que no, que no, que no,
dice que si, en azul,
en espuma, en galope,
dice que no, que no…” -Pablo Neruda

“For manifestly you have long been aware of what you mean when you use the expression ‘being’. We, however, who used to think we understood it, have now become perplexed” – Plato’s Sophist 244a

[‘ἐπειδὴ τοίνυν ἡμεῖς ἠπορήκαμεν, ὑμεῖς αὐτὰ ἡμῖν ἐμφανίζετε ἱκανῶς, τί ποτε βούλεσθε σημαίνειν ὁπόταν ὂν φθέγγησθε. δῆλον γὰρ ὡς ὑμεῖς μὲν ταῦτα πάλαι γιγνώσκετε, ἡμεῖς δὲ πρὸ τοῦ μὲν ᾠόμεθα, νῦν δ᾽ ἠπορήκαμεν– Πλάτωνος Σοφιστής 244a]

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
― Aristotle, Metaphysics
