Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about man
#1768 Jean Paul Sartre

For an occurrence to become an adventure, it is necessary and sufficient for one to recount it. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about adventure
#1769 Jean Paul Sartre

For the moment, the jazz is playing; there is no melody, just notes, a myriad of tiny tremors. The notes know no rest, an inflexible order gives birth to them then destroys them, without ever leaving them the chance to recuperate and exist for themselves.... I would like to hold them back, but I know that, if I succeeded in stopping one, there would only remain in my hand a corrupt and languishing sound. I must accept their death; I must even want that death: I know of few more bitter or intense impressions. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about death
#1770 Jean Paul Sartre

All that I know about my life, it seems, I have learned in books. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about life
#1771 Jean Paul Sartre

Absurd, irreducible; nothing — not even a profound and secret delirium of nature — could explain it. Obviously I did not know everything, I had not seen the seeds sprout, or the tree grow. But faced with this great wrinkled paw, neither ignorance nor knowledge was important: the world of explanations and reasons is not the world of existence. A circle is not absurd, it is clearly explained by the rotation of a straight segment around one of its extremities. But neither does a circle exist. This root, on the other hand, existed in such a way that I could not explain it. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about knowledge

How can I, who was not able to retain my own past, hope to save that of another? .

I exist, that is all, and I find it nauseating. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about sea
#1774 Jean Paul Sartre

I know. I know that I shall never again meet anything or anybody who will inspire me with passion. You know, it's quite a job starting to love somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment, in the very beginning, when you have to jump across a precipice: if you think about it you don't do it. I know I'll never jump again. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about love
#1775 Jean Paul Sartre

I grasp at each second, trying to suck it dry: nothing happens which I do not seize, which I do not fix forever in myself, nothing, neither the fugitive tenderness of those lovely eyes, nor the noises of the street, nor the false dawn of early morning: and even so the minute passes and I do not hold it back, I like to see it pass. .

Every existing thing is born without reason, prolongs itself out of weakness and dies by chance. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about being
#1780 Jean Paul Sartre

Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess. All which I abandon, all which I give, I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away.... To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about joy
#1781 Jean Paul Sartre

I am responsible for everything ... except for my very responsibility, for I am not the foundation of my being. Therefore everything takes place as if I were compelled to be responsible. I am abandoned in the world ... in the sense that I find myself suddenly alone and without help, engaged in a world for which I bear the whole responsibility without being able, whatever I do, to tear myself away from this responsibility for an instant. .

To eat is to appropriate by destruction. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about destruction
#1783 Jean Paul Sartre

In order to make myself recognized by the Other, I must risk my own life. To risk one's life, in fact, is to reveal oneself as not-bound to the objective form or to any determined existence — as not-bound to life. .

L'homme est une passion inutile. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about passion
#1787 Jean Paul Sartre

Each human reality is at the same time a direct project to metamorphose its own For-itself into an In-itself-For-itself, a project of the appropriation of the world as a totality of being-in-itself, in the form of a fundamental quality. Every human reality is a passion in that it projects losing itself so as to found being and by the same stroke to constitute the In-itself which escapes contingency by being its own foundation, the Ens causa sui, which religions call God. Thus the passion of man is the reverse of that of Christ, for man loses himself as man in order that God may be born. But the idea of God is contradictory and we lose ourselves in vain. Man is a useless passion. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about religion
#1788 Jean Paul Sartre

All human activities are equivalent ... and ... all are on principle doomed to failure. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about failure
#1789 Jean Paul Sartre

Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about world
#1790 Jean Paul Sartre

Life has no meaning a priori … It is up to you to give it a meaning, and value is nothing but the meaning that you choose. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about meaning
#1791 Jean Paul Sartre

It is certain that we cannot escape anguish, for we are anguish. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about escape
#1792 Jean Paul Sartre

The For-itself, in fact, is nothing but the pure nihilation of the In-itself; it is like a hole of being at the heart of Being. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about art
#1793 Jean Paul Sartre

Man is always separated from what he is by all the breadth of the being which he is not. He makes himself known to himself from the other side of the world and he looks from the horizon toward himself to recover his inner being. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about war
#1794 Jean Paul Sartre

Generally speaking there is no irreducible taste or inclination. They all represent a certain appropriative choice of being. It is up to existential psychoanalysis to compare and classify them. Ontology abandons us here; it has merely enabled us to determine the ultimate ends of human reality, its fundamental possibilities, and the value which haunts it. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about lies
#1796 Jean Paul Sartre

But [your crime] will be there, one hundred times denied, always there, dragging itself behind you. Then you will finally know that you have committed your life with one throw of the die, once and for all, and there is nothing you can do but tug our crime along until your death. Such is the law, just and unjust, of repentance. Then we will see what will become of your young pride. .
