Da Vinci Housmans BookshopThinkers

"The tragedy of human existence manifests itself in the perpetual vacillation of man leading towards a life devoid of commitment. Man's inability to demolish the bulwark of lukewarmness in himself ushers a predicament of insufferable meaninglessness that continues to haunt him until the day he bids an existential adieu. The viable jewels of life remain untouched when man forgets his vocation of searching for the truth of his existence."

 Sartrean Collective Authenticity: A Final Word
 Jean Paul Sartre (1905 - 1980)

(July 29, 1929 – March 6, 2007)

Walter Bendix Schönflies Benjamin

(15 July 1892 – 27 September 1940)

“Work on good prose has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an architectonic one when it is built, and a textile one when it is woven.”

“Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, as the ground is the medium in which dead cities lie interred.”

Walter Benjamin Housmans Bookshop
