"Throughout the entire history of philosophy, philosophers have sought to discover what man is- or what human nature is. But Sartre believed that man had no such eternal 'nature' to fall back on. Is is therefore useless to search for the meaning of life in general" Gaarder 451

"One of the Baroque period's favorite sayings was the Latin expression 'carpe diem'- 'seize the day.' Another Latin expression that was widely quoted was 'memento mori which means 'remember that you must die.'" Gaarder 224
