Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Mahatma Gandhi
“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Once you label me you negate me.”
Søren Kierkegaard

And profane words scrawled black across the sun.

--From the poem "Doom of the Exiles", written 16 April 1954”
Sylvia Plath, The Collected Poems
