André Gide (November 22, 1869 - February 19, 1951)
It is better to be hated for who you are, than to be loved for someone you are not.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity
Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself- and thus make yourself indispensable
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.
Ask thy purse what thou shouldst spend
He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
