Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
If you’re bored with life – you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals.
I just hope I don’t become so blissful I become boring. I think I’ll always be neurotic enough to do something weird.
I am convinced that boredom is one of the greatest tortures. If I were to imagine Hell, it would be the place where you were continually bored.
Boredom is not an end-product, is comparatively rather an early stage in life and art. You’ve got to go by or past or through boredom, as through a filter, before the clear product emerges.
All the evil in life, it seems to me, comes from idleness, boredom, and spiritual emptiness, and all this is inevitable when one is accustomed to living at other people’s expense.[В жизни всё зло, мне кажется, от праздности, от скуки, от душевной пустоты, а всё это неизбежно, когда привыкаешь жить на счет других.]
