Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.

Just remember that sometimes, the way you think about a person isn’t the way they actually are.

—John Green

For, after all, what is man in nature ? A nothing compared to the infinite, a whole compared to the nothing, a middle point between all and nothing.

Equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the infinity in which he is engulfed.

—Pascal
