Logic and sermons never convince.

WALT WHITMAN, Leaves of Grass

Logic ignores the Almost, just as the sun ignores the candle.

VICTOR HUGO, Les Misérables

Logic may indeed be unshakeable, but it cannot withstand a man who is determined to live.


If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.

What frightened me was the logic of the world; in it lay the foretaste of something incalculably powerful. Its mechanism was incomprehensible, and I could not possibly remain closeted in that windowless, bone-chilling room. Though outside lay the sea of irrationality, it was far more agreeable to swim in its waters until presently I drowned.
