    Thomas Mann
  • Nothing is more curious and awkward than the relationship of two people who only know each other with their eyes — who meet and observe each other daily, even hourly and who keep up the impression of disinterest either because of morals or because of a mental abnormality.

Because man loves and honors man as long as he is not able to judge him, and desire is a product of lacking knowledge

    Thomas Mann
  • Laughter is a sunbeam of the soul

    Thomas Mann
