Quotes from the book
"The beauty does not belong to the woman and is not its own property — simply during a certain time of life her face reflects beauty, as a windowpane — the sun, invisible behind roofs of houses. Therefore it is impossible to tell that the female beauty withers over time — simply the sun leaves further, and windows of other houses start reflecting it. But the sun, as we know, at all not in glasses at which we look. It in us."
"When I pretend to be, at me everything always turns out naturally. Therefore I pretend to be always — so leaves much more plausibly than if I suddenly start behaving sincerely. After all that means to behave sincerely? It means directly to express the essence in behavior. And if my essence in pretending to be, so the only way to original sincerity for me lies through pretense. I do not want to tell that never I behave directly. On the contrary, I represent a spontaneity with all sincerity which is in my heart."
"The economy based on mediation generates the culture preferring to resell the images created by others instead of creating the new."
