JOSE ORTEGA Y GASSET
Spanish philosopher and humanist
(1883 - 1955)

To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand.

Civilization is nothing more than the effort to reduce the use of force to the last resort.
  [Sp., La civilizacion no es otra cosa que el ensayo de reducir la fuerza a ultima ratio.]

I am I plus my surroundings, and if I do not preserve the latter I do not preserve myself.
