Juger que la vie vaut ou ne vaut pas la peine d'être vécue, c'est répondre à la question fondamentale de la philosophie

Judging whether life is worth or isn't worth being lived, is answering a fundamental question of philosophy.

Mais rien n’y fait, cet homme refuse de quitter son subconscient et s’immisce dans ses rêves, nuit après nuit, décalage horaire ou pas.

But nothing will do, this man refuses to quit his subconscious and immerses himself into his dreams, night after night, jet lag or not. (I'm not actually sure what "décalage hoirare" means in this context :hmm: )

Jamais, comme aujourd’hui, je ne me suis aperçu à quel point notre métier est un sacerdoce.

It also is important to distinguish the Belarus system from the Belarus citizens.

Nothing was changing the routine they were considering essential for their own happiness

Thinking about all this and telling myself nice stories, I had forgotten my notebook.

The simple past sounds more natural for this sentence: Nothing changed the routine they considered

I tried to preserve the rhyme and also did a quick attempt at iambic pentameter:

Despite not being in the squash any more, I still can feel the ground move back and forth…

La Belle au bois dormant de Charles Perrault peut être également considéré comme un exemple de nécrophilie dans la littérature classique.

Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault can also be considered as an exemple of necrophilia in classic literature.

OK, I'll do it myself again:

The duck throws bread at passers-by and sings: "Piss off, wankers!"

(I rather do simple sentences I can create myself than just copy-and-pasting something from linguee or wherever. Am I making this game boring for you or something?)

On a forum, lack of activity is rarely all about you. People just haven't posted. Period.

On the sentences, there are no rules on where they should come from. Your method is perfectly legitimate.
