„Jsme národ od základu demoralizovaný a zkrachovalý. Cizinci, který by něco takového tvrdil, bych vyrazil zuby, ale mezi námi řečeno – tak tomu je (…)“

„I might have been your happiness, and became your misfortune.“

—  Henryk Sienkiewicz, kniha Without Dogma
Without Dogma (1891), Context: I might have been your happiness, and became your misfortune. I am the cause of your death, for if I had been a different man, if I had not been wanting in all principles, all foundations of life, there would not have come upon you the shocks that killed you. Rome, 5 December

„Whoso loves beauty is unable for that very reason to love deformity.“

—  Henryk Sienkiewicz, kniha Quo Vadis
Quo Vadis (1895), Context: Whoso loves beauty is unable for that very reason to love deformity. One may not believe in our gods, but it is possible to love them... Petronius, Ch. 72

„Our world knew, before thou wert born, that when the last cup was drained, it was time to go, — time to rest, — and it knows yet how to do that with calmness. Plato declares that virtue is music, that the life of a sage is harmony. If that be true, I shall die as I have lived, — virtuously.“

—  Henryk Sienkiewicz, kniha Quo Vadis
Quo Vadis (1895), Context: No God has promised me immortality; hence no surprise meets me. At the same time thou art mistaken, Vinicius, in asserting that only thy God teaches man to die calmly. No. Our world knew, before thou wert born, that when the last cup was drained, it was time to go, — time to rest, — and it knows yet how to do that with calmness. Plato declares that virtue is music, that the life of a sage is harmony. If that be true, I shall die as I have lived, — virtuously. Petronius, Ch. 72

„It is not merely a question of sorrow after the death of a beloved being, but of the reproaches she will apply to herself, thinking that if she had loved him more he might have clung more to his life.“

—  Henryk Sienkiewicz, kniha Without Dogma
Without Dogma (1891), Context: It is not merely a question of sorrow after the death of a beloved being, but of the reproaches she will apply to herself, thinking that if she had loved him more he might have clung more to his life. Empty, trivial, and unjust reproaches, for she did everything that force of will could command, — she spurned my love and remained pure and faithful to him. But one must know that soul full of scruples as I know it, to gauge the depth of misery into which the news would plunge her, and how she would suspect herself, — asking whether his death did not correspond to some deeply hidden desire on her part for freedom and happiness; whether it did not gratify those wishes she had scarcely dared to form. 13 November
