Ralph Ellison
“What and how much had I lost by trying to do only what was expected of me instead of what I myself had wished to do?”
Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

Mark Twain
“Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.”
Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi

Carl Sagan
“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light‐years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. So are our emotions in the presence of great art or music or literature, or acts of exemplary selfless courage such as those of Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr. The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Oscar Wilde
“In old days books were written by men of letters and read by the public. Nowadays books are written by the public and read by nobody.”
Oscar Wilde

Italo Calvino
“A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.”
Italo Calvino, The Uses of Literature
