„Nohow less. Nohow worse. Nohow naught. Nohow on.“

—  Samuel Beckett, livro Worstward Ho

Worstward Ho (1983)
Contexto: Enough. Sudden enough. Sudden all far. No move and sudden all far. All least. Three pins. One pinhole. In dimmost dim. Vasts apart. At bounds of boundless void. Whence no farther. Best worse no farther. Nohow less. Nohow worse. Nohow naught. Nohow on.

„The law is only one of several imperfect and more or less external ways of defending what is better in life against what is worse.“

—  Václav Havel, livro The Power of the Powerless

Living in Truth (1986), The Power of the Powerless
Contexto: The law is only one of several imperfect and more or less external ways of defending what is better in life against what is worse. By itself, the law can never create anything better... Establishing respect for the law does not automatically ensure a better life for that, after all, is a job for people and not for laws and institutions.

Contexto: For action has been taken within the three-way framework of the Constitution of the United States. The coordinate branches of the Government continue freely to function. The Bill of Rights remains inviolate. The freedom of elections is wholly maintained. Prophets of the downfall of American democracy have seen their dire predictions come to naught.
