Anne Tyler
“dying, you don't get to see how it all turns out. Questions you have asked will go unanswered forever. Will this one of my children settle down? Will that one learn to be happier? Will I ever discover what was meant by such-and-such?”
Anne Tyler, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant

Italo Calvino
“1 )Classics are books which, the more we think we know them through hearsay, the more original, unexpected, and innovative we find them when we actually read them.
2)A classic is a work which constantly generates a pulviscular cloud of critical discourse around it, but which always shakes the particles off.”
Italo Calvino, Why Read the Classics?

“There are those who wish to read everything. Do not try to do this. Let it
> alone. The number of books is infinite, and you cannot follow
> infinity...For where there is no end, there can be no rest; where there is
> no rest, there can be no peace; and where there is no peace, God cannot
> dwell.”
Hugh of St. Victor

John Donne
“Doubt wisely; in strange way
To stand inquiring right, is not to stray;
To sleep, or run wrong, is.”
John Donne
