Thornton Wilder

“Some say that we shall never know, and that to the gods we are like the flies that the boys kill on a summer's day, and some say, to the contrary, that the very sparrows do not lose a feather that has not been brushed away by the finger of God.”


Thornton Wilder, The Bridge of San Luis Rey
