Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre ( 21 June 1905 – 15 April 1980 ), normally known simply as Jean-Paul Sartre , was a French existentialist philosopher, dramatist and screenwriter, novelist, and critic. He had an enduring personal relationship with fellow philosopher Simone de Beauvoir .

For man holds his ground only by surpassing himself, in the same sense in which it is said that one ceases to love if one does not love increasingly everyday.

He wanted to assume his entire condition, to carry the world on his shoulders and to become, in defiance of all, what all have made of him.
