Creative Quotations from . . .

Dec 11

F
Literature that is not the breath of contemporary society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society . . . loses the confidence of its own people, and its published works are used as wastepaper instead of being read.

R
The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart.
A
A man is happy so long as he chooses to be happy and nothing can stop him.
N
Everything you add to the truth subtracts from the truth.
K
You only have power over people so long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything he's no longer in your power -- he's free again.
