Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.More Denis Diderot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People praise virtue, but they hate it, they run away from it. It freezes you to death, and in this world you've got to keep your feet warm.More Denis Diderot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be born in imbecility, in the midst of pain and crisis; to be the plaything of ignorance, error, need, sickness, wickedness, and passions; to return step by step to imbecility, from the time of lisping to that of doting; to live among knaves and charlatans of all kinds; to die between one man who takes your pulse and another who troubles your head; never to know where you come from, why you come and where you are going! That is what is called the most important gift of our parents and nature. Life.More Denis Diderot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is only one virtue, justice; only one duty, to be happy; only one corollary, not to overvalue life and not to fear death.More Denis Diderot quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The best doctor is the one you run to and can't find.More Denis Diderot quotes [09/21/2011 04:09:11]
