"It never occurs to anybody that what the world now needs, confused as it is by much knowing, is a Socrates. But that is perfectly natural, for if anybody had this notion, not to say if many were to have it, there would be less need of a Socrates. What a delusion most needs is the very thing it least thinks of–naturally, for otherwise it would not be a delusion."
"I remember my dilemma in a concentration camp when faced with a man and a woman who were close to suicide; both had told me that they expected nothing more from life.
"I asked both my fellow prisoners whether the question was really what we expected from life.
"Was it not, rather, what life was expecting from us?"
