The Devil and Miss Prym

There is still something very important missing--a companion with whom to share all this beauty.

Profoundest changes take place within a very reduced time frame.

Challenge will not wait.

You shouldn't believe in promises. The world is full of them.

About the lies he had been obliged to believe because he could not accept reality.

Men take the oddest satisfaction in feeling superior without knowing that most of the time they are being utterly predictable.

She was all too familiar with the silence of this remote place which signified not peace and tranquility but a total absence of new things to say.

It was a wretched place in which everything was predictable, organized and reliable.

Everyday was another day spent waiting. Every night was a night when she might meet someone who would recognize her true worth.

She realized that there were 2 things that prevent us from achieving our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possible by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune when you least expected it. For at that moment, all our fears suddenly surface: fear of life full of new challenges, the fear of losing everything that is familiar.

People want to change everything and at the same time want it all to remain the same.

Good and evil have the same face. It all depends when they cross the path of each individual human being.

Rich men never waste a penny, only poor people do that.

They only think they have everything under their control, when in fact, they control nothing.

Dangerous men and women never make threats.

There are two kinds of idiots--those who don't take action because they have received a threat, and those who think they are taking action because they have issued a threat.

The best way to weaken ones enemy was to get them to believe that you were on his side.

Of all the days in our life, which is the one that never comes? Tomorrow.

I can almost touch your fear.

Even God has a hell: his love for mankind.

I was always a man of action.

Cowards--they never lose or win.

The answer is simple: chance.

It isn't the desire to abide by the law that makes everyone behave as society requires but they fear of punishment. Each one of us carries gallows inside.

Your not trying to find the answer to a question, your simply trying to confirm something you desperately want to believe: that everyone is evil.

Life is a reign of terror in the shadow of the guillotine.

Mankind is only virtuous because terror exists.

They were losing nothing by waiting.

An authority derived from terror leaving fear and suffering for later.

Man needs what is worst in him in order to achieve what is best in him.

Forgive God.

We have committed the sin of pride in believing ourselves to be better than we are and that is why we are suffering.

Death often frees us from a lot of senseless suffering.

Silence doesn't always mean consent--usually all it meant was that people were incapable of coming up with an immediate response.

They seek suffering in the most joyous of places because they think they are unworthy of happiness.

It was all a matter of control or choice.

Life can seem either very long or very short, according to how you lived it.

To follow our dreams and master the fear that prevents us from living.
