After the devastation of World War II, Jean-Paul Sartre inspired a movement of existential and intellectual philosophy. This is our collection of some of the best Jean-Paul Sartre quotes.
Jean-Paul Sartre was born in Paris just after the turn of the 20th century, in 1905. Sartre lost his father at an early age and grew up in Paris with his mother.
Sartre would grow to become a writer of critical acclaim and a leading voice in the world of existential philosophy. Sartre did not believe in marriage, but he did hold a life-long open relationship and partnership with fellow writer, philosopher, and feminist Simone de Beauvoir (check out our Simone de Beauvoir quotes here).
