• No, the secret is that there's no reward and we have to endure our characters and our natures as best we can, because no amount of experience or insight is going to rectify our deficiencies, our self-regard, or our cupidity. We have to learn that our desires do not find any real echo in the world. We have to accept that the people we love do not love us, or not in the way we hope. We have to accept betrayal and disloyalty, and, hardest of all, that someone is finer than we are in character or intelligence

    Sándor Márai
  • And yet, sometimes facts are no more than pitiful consequences, because guilt does not reside in our acts but in the intentions that give rise to our act. Everything turns on our intentions

    Sándor Márai
  • Whether life finds us guilty or not guilty, we ourselves know we are not innocent

    Sándor Márai
  • لا شئ أخطر من رجل لا يخضع للطاغية

    Sándor Márai
