Strindberg, retratos & citações

August Strindberg - Quotes

I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves.

Antipathy, dissimilarity of views, hate, contempt, can accompany true love.

Why is it so painful to watch a person sink? Because there is something unnatural in it, for nature demands personal progress, evolution, and every backward step means wasted energy.

Happiness consumes itself like a flame. It cannot burn for ever, it must go out, and the presentiment of its end destroys it at its very peak.

I hated her now with a hatred more fatal than indifference because it was the other side of love.

That is the thankless position of the father in the family-the provider for all, and the enemy of all.

I dream, therefore I exist.

Oh, I loved him too much to feel no hate for him.

I love her and she loves me, and we hate each other with a wild hatred born of love.

I find my joy of living in the fierce and ruthless battles of life.

There comes a moment... When imagination gives out and Reality leaps forth. It is frightful!

Some people seem to be born to suffer.

I'm everywhere now, in the sea which is my blood, in the hills which are my bones, in the trees, in the flowers. My head reaches as high as the heavens and I look out over the whole universe, which is all me, and I feel all the strength and power of the creator in me, for he and I are one. I want to take it all into my hands and knead it into something more nearly perfect, more enduring, more beautiful. I want to see it all created anew and every created being happy

born without pain, living without sorrow, dying in silent contentment.
