„Whoever tries to imagine perfection simply reveals his own emptiness.“

—  George Orwell English author and journalist 1903 - 1950
Context: Nearly all creators of Utopia have resembled the man who has toothache, and therefore thinks happiness consists in not having toothache. They wanted to produce a perfect society by an endless continuation of something that had only been valuable because it was temporary. The wider course would be to say that there are certain lines along which humanity must move, the grand strategy is mapped out, but detailed prophecy is not our business. Whoever tries to imagine perfection simply reveals his own emptiness. "Why Socialists Don't Believe in Fun" http://www.k-1.com/Orwell/site/work/essays/fun.html, Tribune (20 December 1943)

„When the imagination sleeps, words are emptied of their meaning: a deaf population absent-mindedly registers the condemnation of a man.“

—  Albert Camus French author and journalist 1913 - 1960
Context: When the imagination sleeps, words are emptied of their meaning: a deaf population absent-mindedly registers the condemnation of a man. … there is no other solution but to speak out and show the obscenity hidden under the verbal cloak.
