Miguel de Unamuno
We never know, believe me, when we have succeeded best.
We need God, not in order to understand the why, but in order to feel and sustain the ultimate wherefore, to give a meaning to the universe.
Faith which does not doubt is dead faith.
If a person never contradicts himself, it must be that he says nothing.
That which the Fascists hate above all else, is intelligence.
Your neighbor’s vision is as true for him as your own vision is true for you.
True science teaches, above all, to doubt and to be ignorant.
What we believe to be the motives of our conduct are usually but the pretexts for it.
To fall into a habit is to begin to cease to be.
To love with the spirit is to pity, and he who pities most loves most.
Anyone who in discussion relies upon authority uses, not his understanding, but rather his memory.
The only way to give finality to the world is to give it consciousness.
Life is doubt, and faith without doubt is nothing but death.
Cure yourself of the affliction of caring how you appear to others. Concern yourself only with how you appear before God, concern yourself only with the idea that God may have of you.
Suffering is the substance of life and the root of personality, for it is only suffering that makes us persons.
