Jean-Paul Sartre

Jean-Paul Sartre

a French philosopher, novelist, playwright and essayist
[M]an is condemned to be free. Condemned, because he did not create himself, in other respect is free; because, once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does. The Existentialist does not believe in the power of passion. He will never agree that a sweeping passion is a ravaging torrent which fatally leads a man to certain acts and is therefore an excuse. He thinks that man is responsible for his passion.More Jean-Paul Sartre quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
