No Exit

By Jean Paul Sartre QUOTATION: Don’t you feel the same way? When I cannot see myself, even though I touch myself, I wonder if I really exist.
ATTRIBUTION: Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980), French novelist, dramatist, philosopher, political activist. Estelle, in No Exit, act 1, sc. 5, Gallimard (1947).

QUOTATION: One always dies too soon—or too late. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than you life.
ATTRIBUTION: Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980), French novelist, dramatist, philosopher, political activist. Inès in No Exit, act 1, sc. 5, Gallimard (1947).

QUOTATION: I will take it all: tongs, molten lead, prongs, garrotes, all that burns, all that tears, I want to truly suffer. Better one hundred bites, better the whip, vitriol, than this suffering in the head, this ghost of suffering which grazes and caresses and never hurts enough.
ATTRIBUTION: Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980), French novelist, dramatist, philosopher, political activist. Garcin in No Exit, act 1, sc. 5, Gallimard (1947).

QUOTATION: Your crystal? That’s silly. Whom do you think you are fooling? Come on, everyone knows that I threw the baby out of the window. The crystal is shattered on earth, and I do not care. I am no longer anything but a skin, and my skin does not belong to you.
ATTRIBUTION: Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980), French novelist, dramatist, philosopher, political activist. Estelle in No Exit, act 1, sc. 5, Gallimard (1947).

QUOTATION: Ha! to forget. How childish! I feel you in my bones. Your silence screams in my ears. You may nail your mouth shut, you may cut out your tongue, can you keep yourself from existing? Will you stop your thoughts.
ATTRIBUTION: Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980), French novelist, dramatist, philosopher, political activist. Inès in No Exit, act 1., Sc. 5, Gallimard (1947).
