“Oh! I see my life well now … a passionate, boundless research.
No love will eclipse this. If I marry, my philosophy will have to be taken with me. This is essential, so much so that in order to possess it, I would almost accept not getting married. No, be-cause love is from life, and my philosophy must be from life.
Marvelous intoxication of thought, solitude of the mind. I will dominate the world. Literature, works, undertakings—what are all these next to my austere resolution.” — Simone de Beauvoir - Diary of a Philosophy Student, July, 1927.
