"Existence precedes essence."
-Jean Paul Sartre ...
(but maybe essence precedes existence?)

"It is inauthentic to refer to oneself through the eyes of others."

- Jean Paul Sartre

"One is not born a woman but becomes one."

- Simone de Beauvoir

"Man's greatness is his misery."

- Blaise Pascal

"One is never as happy nor as discontent as imagined."

- Fran├žois de La Rouchefoucauld 

"Those who live without madness are not as wise as they believe."

- Francois de La Rouchefoucauld

These come across a little more powerful in French...
But an idea is an idea!
