"When someone else's truth is the same as your truth, and he seems to be saying it just for you, that's great."
"You are interested in a person, not in life, and people die or leave us - I'm sorry; I wasn't referring to your wife. But if you are interested in life it never lets you down. I am interested in the blueness of cheese. You don't do crosswords, do you, Mr. Wormold? I do, and they are like people: one reaches an end. I can finish any crossword within an hour, but I have a discovery concerned with the blueness of cheese that will never come to a conclusion - although of course one dreams that perhaps a time might come...One day I must show you my laboratory."
“When the last tree is cut and the last fish killed, the last river poisoned, then you will see that you can't eat money.”
“You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.”
"I had become a tourist to my own experience."
"Another fifteen years and it will flower again."
"The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labor."
"We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death"
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did Iwishtopractiseresignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.”
"And I say: 'Look! I have no hands!'
But the people around me say: 'What are hands'?"
"It is no great feat for a man to be eloquent,
provided he has something worth saying.
Your fancy words, however, drain from your mouth
the way sap drips from a tree,
with very little proof of intelligence,
whatever pretense you mount to the contrary.
A man whose only boast is a bold tongue,
can only do his city harm with the mind he doesn't have."
