Text Quotes
Imagination is always the fabric of social life and the dynamic of history. The influence of real needs and compulsions, of real interests and materials, is indirect because the crowd is never conscious of it  (Simone Weil Quotes) A self-respecting nation is ready for anything, including war, except for a renunciation of its option to make war  (Simone Weil Quotes) A test of what is real is that it is hard and rough. Joys are found in it, not pleasure. What is pleasant belongs to dreams  (Simone Weil Quotes) An atheist may be simply one whose faith and love are concentrated on the impersonal aspects of God  (Simone Weil Quotes) As soon as men know that they can kill without fear of punishment or blame, they kill; or at least they encourage killers with approving smiles  (Simone Weil Quotes) Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached  (Simone Weil Quotes) Equality is the public recognition, effectively expressed in institutions and manners, of the principle that an equal degree of attention is due to the needs of all human beings  (Simone Weil Quotes) Humanism was not wrong in thinking that truth, beauty, liberty, and equality are of infinite value, but in thinking that man can get them for himself without grace  (Simone Weil Quotes) In the intellectual order, the virtue of humility is nothing more nor less than the power of attention  (Simone Weil Quotes) More than in any other performing arts the lack of respect for acting seems to spring from the fact that every layman considers himself a valid critic  (Simone Weil Quotes) Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication  (Simone Weil Quotes) The contemporary form of true greatness lies in a civilization founded on the spirituality of work  (Simone Weil Quotes) The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell  (Simone Weil Quotes) The mysteries of faith are degraded if they are made into an object of affirmation and negation, when in reality they should be an object of contemplation  (Simone Weil Quotes) The only way into truth is through one's own annihilation; through dwelling a long time in a state of extreme and total humiliation  (Simone Weil Quotes) The role of the intelligence - that part of us which affirms and denies and formulates opinions is merely to submit  (Simone Weil Quotes) There is one, and only one, thing in modern society more hideous than crime namely, repressive justice  (Simone Weil Quotes) To want friendship is a great fault. Friendship ought to be a gratuitous joy, like the joys afforded by art or life  (Simone Weil Quotes) To write the lives of the great in separating them from their works necessarily ends by above all stressing their pettiness, because it is in their work that they have put the best of themselves  (Simone Weil Quotes) What a country calls its vital. Interests are not things that help its people live, but things that help it make war  (Simone Weil Quotes) Evil, when we are in it's power, is not felt as evil, but as a necessity, even a duty  (Simone Weil Quotes) Bourgeois society is infected by monomania: the monomania of accounting. For it, the only thing that has value is what can be counted in francs and centimes. It never hesitates to sacrifice human life to figures which look well on paper, such as national budgets or industrial balance sheets  (Simone Weil Quotes) Justice, truth, and beauty are sisters and comrades. With three such beautiful words we have no need to look for any others  (Simone Weil Quotes) The development of the faculty of attention forms the real object and almost the sole interest of studies  (Simone Weil Quotes) There is nothing that comes closer to true humility than the intelligence. It is impossible to feel pride in one’s intelligence at the moment when one really and truly exercises it  (Simone Weil Quotes) It is only by entering the transcendental, the supernatural, the authentically spiritual order that man rises above the social. Until then, whatever he may do, the social is transcendent in relation to him  (Simone Weil Quotes) All the tragedies which we can imagine return in the end to the one and only tragedy: the passage of time  (Simone Weil Quotes) Art is the symbol of the two noblest human efforts: to construct and to refrain from destruction  (Simone Weil Quotes) It is precisely those artists and writers who are most inclined to think of their art as the manifestation of their personality who are in fact the most in bondage to public taste  (Simone Weil Quotes) The capacity to give one’s attention to a sufferer is a very rare and difficult thing; it is almost a miracle; it is a miracle. Nearly all those who think they have the capacity do not possess it  (Simone Weil Quotes)
