Alright, another week and another good quote; this one by a French philosopher whose name I equated with sarcasm for years (and possibly good reason). Born in 1905, he died in 1980, but not before he left his mark on existentialism and phenomenology. He influenced marxism, sociology, and critical thinking, among other areas. Along the way, he also had some good quotes pertaining to mankind in general and politics specifically. He also is one of the few people to turn a Nobel prize down (even though he did try to collect the money later!) Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you, Jean-Paul Sartre:
“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.” – Jean-Paul Sartre.
As always, this is for Silver Threading at:
See you next week!
