Text Quotes
The knight departing for new adventures offends his lady, yet she has nothing but contempt for him if he remains at her feet  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) Hegel held that the two sexes were of necessity different, the one being active and the other passive, and of course the female would be the passive one  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) Old age is better for women than for men. First of all, they have less far to fall, since their lives are more mediocre than those of most men  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) Sex pleasure in woman is a kind of magic spell; it demands complete abandon; if words or movements oppose the magic of caresses, the spell is broken  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) My life was hurrying, racing tragically toward its end. And yet at the same time it was dripping so slowly, so very slowly now, hour by hour, minute by minute. One always has to wait until the sugar melts, the memory dies, the wound scars over, the sun sets, the unhappiness lifts and fades away  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) My worst mistake has been not grasping that time goes by. It was going by and there I was, set in the attitude of the ideal wife of an ideal husband. Instead of bringing our sexual relationship to life again I brooded happily over memories of our former nights together  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) There is not a single line in this diary that does not call for a correction or a denial... Yes: throughout these pages I meant what I was writing and I meant the opposite; reading them again I feel completely lost... I was lying to myself. How I lied to myself!  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) A freedom which is interested only in denying freedom must be denied. And it is not true that the recognition of the freedom of others limits my own freedom: to be free is not to have the power to do anything you like; it is to be able to surpass the given toward an open future; the existence of others as a freedom defines my situation and is even the condition of my own freedom. I am oppressed if I am thrown into prison, but not if I am kept from throwing my neighbor into prison  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) The day had been spent in the expectation of these hours, and now they were crumbling away, becoming, in their turn, another period of expectancy... It was a journey without end, leading to an indefinite future, eternally shifting just as she was reaching the present  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) I’ve always been keenly aware of the passing of time. I’ve always thought that I was old. Even when I was twelve, I thought it was awful to be thirty. I felt that something was lost. At the same time, I was aware of what I could gain, and certain periods of my life have taught me a great deal. But, in spite of everything, I’ve always been haunted by the passing of time and by the fact that death keeps closing in on us  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) There is no such thing as a natural death: nothing that happens to a man is ever natural, since his presence calls the world into question. All men must die: but for every man his death is an accident and, even if he knows it and consents to it, an unjustifiable violation  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) Science condemns itself to failure when, yielding to the infatuation of the serious, it aspires to attain being, to contain it, and to possess it; but it finds its truth if it considers itself as a free engagement of thought in the given, aiming, at each discovery, not at fusion with the thing, but at the possibility of new discoveries; what the mind then projects is the concrete accomplishment of its freedom  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) The individual is defined only by his relationship to the world and to other individuals; he exists only by transcending himself, and his freedom can be achieved only through the freedom of others. He justifies his existence by a movement which, like freedom, springs from his heart but which leads outside of himself  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) The notion of ambiguity must not be confused with that of absurdity. To declare that existence is absurd is to deny that it can ever be given a meaning; to say that it is ambiguous is to assert that its meaning is never fixed, that it must be constantly won. Absurdity challenges every ethics; but also the finished rationalization of the real would leave no room for ethics; it is because man’s condition is ambiguous that he seeks, through failure and outrageousness, to save his existence  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) I willingly trust myself to chance. I let my thoughts wander, I digress, not only sitting at my work, but all day long, all night even. It often happens that a sentence suddenly runs through my head before I go to bed, or when I am unable to sleep, and I get up again and write it down  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes) Existentialism does not offer to the reader the consolations of an abstract evasion: existentialism proposes no evasion. On the contrary, its ethics is experienced in the truth of life, and it then appears as the only proposition of salvation which one can address to men  (Simone De Beauvoir Quotes)
