(I doubt, therefore I think; I think therefore I am)
Rene Descartes

Albert Camus

Oscar Wilde
In the wild struggle for existance, we want to have something that endures, and so we fill our minds with rubbish and facts, in the silly hope of keeping our place.
Oscar Wilde
No one would choose a friendless existence on condition of having all other things in the world

Thomas Hobbes
The very purpose of existence is to reconcile the glowing opinion we hold of ourselves with the appalling things that other people think about us.
Quentin Crisp
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
Buddha
We don't exist unless we are deeply and sensually in touch with that which can be touched but not known.
D.H. Lawrence
When one subtracts from life infancy (which is vegetation), sleep, eating and swilling, buttoning and unbuttoning - how much remains of downright existence? The summer of a dormouse.
Lord Byron
