Stran 154 - Art is a human activity consisting in this, that one man consciously by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through, and that others are infected by these feelings and also experience them.
Stran 49 - When I go to a theatre, I feel as though I were spending a few hours with my ancestors, who conceived life as something that was primitive, arid and brutal; but this conception of theirs scarcely even lingers in my memory, and surely it is not one that I can share. I am shown a deceived husband killing his wife, a woman poisoning her lover, a son avenging his father, a father slaughtering his children, children putting their father to death, murdered kings, ravished virgins, imprisoned citizens —...
Stran 154 - To evoke in oneself a feeling one has once experienced, and having evoked it in oneself, then, by means of movements, lines, colours, sounds, or forms expressed in words, so to transmit that feeling that others may experience the same feeling— this is the activity of art.
Stran 196 - Herz! Oh zerbrich, zerbrich, Herz, nach solchem Glücke, nach solchem Stiche! — Wie? Ward die Welt nicht eben vollkommen? Rund und reif? Oh des goldenen runden Reifs — wohin fliegt er wohl?

Stran 149 - I was not mad or in an unhealthy mental state ; on the contrary, I enjoyed a mental and physical strength which I have seldom found in men of my class and pursuits ; I could keep up with a peasant in mowing, and could continue mental labor for eight or ten hours at a stretch, without any evil consequences.
Stran 93 - Lust-Entzücken! Himmel-höchstes Welt-Entrücken! Mein Tristan! Mein Isolde! Tristan! Isolde! Mein und dein! Immer ein! Ewig, ewig ein! The second is from the same act: Nun banne das Verlangen, holder Tod, sehnend verlangter Liebes-Tod! In deinen Armen, dir geweiht, ur-heilig Erwärmen, von Erwachens Not befreit.
Stran 148 - My life had come to a sudden stop. I was able to breathe, to eat, to drink, to sleep. I could not, indeed, help doing so; but there was no real life in me.
Stran 149 - I had to come to, at a time when all the circumstances of my life were preeminently happy ones, and when I had not reached my fiftieth year. I had a good...
Stran 93 - Wie es fassen? Wie sie lassen. Diese Wonne fern der Sonne Fern der Tage Trennungsklage? Ohne Wähnen sanftes Sehnen, Ohne Bangen süß Verlangen; Ohne Wehen hehr Vergehen, Ohne Schmachten hold Umnachten; Ohne Scheiden ohne Meiden, Traut allein ewig heim.
