The truth is always an abyss. One must — as in a swimming pool — dare to dive from the quivering springboard of trivial everyday experience and sink into the depths, in order to later rise again — laughing and fighting for breath — to the now doubly illuminated surface of things.
— Franz Kafka (via darksilenceinsuburbia)
The problems are solved not by giving new information but by arranging what we have always known. Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.
— Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations (via man-of-prose)
We live in a world where there is more and more information, and less and less meaning.
— Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation (via mythologyofblue)
