Dez curtas citações de Alain de Botton

Dez curtas citações de Alain de Botton:

  1. People only get really interesting when they start to rattle the bars of their cages.
  2. When one is finally feeling lucid, clear-eyed and rational, people always ask if one's drunk.
  3. Weakness is only charming in the strong.
  4. Those who go on to be proper writers are those who can forgive themselves the horrors of the first draft.
  5. You can only determine people's levels of happiness by investigating their ambitions, not their achievements.
  6. Great conversations are like beautiful squares in foreign cities one finds at night and then don't know how to get back to in daytime.
  7. Work only starts when the fear of doing nothing finally exceeds the fear of doing something badly.
  8. Nagging: when we are too exhausted to be able to convince and charm others into recognising the legitimacy of our needs.
  9. The most attractive people are the desperate but stoic-comedic.
  10.  Success is a reduction in the number of people capable of torturing you with envy.
