Evelyn Waugh
“To understand all is to forgive all.”
Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

Frank Warren
“Every single person has at least one secret that would break your heart. If we could just remember this, I think there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world.”
