Rudyard Kipling
“There are few things sweeter in this world than the guileless, hotheaded,
intemperate, open admiration of a junior. Even a woman in
her blindest devotion does not fall into the gait of the man she
adores, tilt her bonnet to the angle at which he wears his hat, or
interlard her speech with his pet oaths.”
Rudyard Kipling, Indian Tales

James A. Michener
“For this is the journey that men make, to find themselves. If they fail in this, it doesn't matter much what else they find.”
James A. Michener

Jean-Paul Sartre
“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”

“Tahu kau mengapa aku sayangi kau lebih dari siapa pun? Karena kau menulis. Suaramu takkan padam ditelan angin, akan abadi, sampai jauh, jauh di kemudian hari. (Mama, 84)”
