Quotes Gaurav Liked

José Saramago
“Every novel is like this, desperation, a frustrated attempt to save something of the past. Except that it still has not been established whether it is the novel that prevents man from forgetting himself or the impossibility of forgetfulness that makes him write novels.”
José Saramago, The History of the Siege of Lisbon
