“With languages, you can move from one social situation to another. With languages, you are at home anywhere.”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss

“How objects are handed on is all about story-telling. I am giving you this because I love you. Or because it was given to me. Because I bought it somewhere special. Because you will care for it. Because it will complicate your life. Because it will make someone else envious. There is no easy story in legacy. What is remembered and what is forgotten?”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss

“Yangi, a philosopher, art historian and poet, had evolved a theory of why some objects - pots, baskets, cloth made by unknown craftsmen - were so beautiful. In his view, they expressed unconscious beauty because they had been made in such numbers that the craftsman had been liberated from his ego.”
