Дени́ де Ружмо́н — швейцарский писатель, философ и общественный деятель.


„Речь идет не о том, чтобы предвидеть будущее, а о том, чтобы творить его.“

„Если бы мы могли осмыслить смерть во всей её полноте, то сами бы умерли в тот же миг.“


„Love ceases to be a demon only when he ceases to be a god.“

„Romance only comes into existence where love is fatal, frowned upon and doomed by life itself.“ Love in the Western World

„To love in the sense of passion-love is the contrary of to live. It is an impoverishment of one's being, an askesis without sequel, an inability to enjoy the present without imagining it as absent, a never-ending flight from possession.“ Love in the Western World

„What stirs lyrical poets to their finest flights is neither the delight of the senses nor the fruitful contentment of the settled couple; not the satisfaction of love, but its passion. And passion means suffering.“ Love in the Western World

„[... ] passion is by no means the fuller life which it seems to be in the dreams of adolescence, but is on the contrary a kind of naked and denuding intensity, verily, a bitter destitution, the impoverishment of a mind being emptied of all diversity, an obsession of the imagination by a single image.“ Love in the Western World

„the knowledge of true danger may cure us of false fears“


„This peculiar connexion between a certain view of woman and the European conception of war has had profound consequences for morality, education, and politics.“ Love in the Western World

„So soon as passion goes beyond instinct and becomes truly itself, it tends to self self-description, either in order to justify or intensify its being, or else simply in order to keep going.“ Love in the Western World

„The more a man is given to sentiment, the more likely is he to be wordy and to speak well.“ Love in the Western World
