Winston S. Churchill
“Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”
Winston S. Churchill

Lewis Carroll
“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”
Lewis Carroll

Nikos Kazantzakis
“I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.”
Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Herman Melville
“Know ye now, Bulkington? Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

But as in landlessness alone resides highest truth, shoreless, indefinite as God- so better is it to perish in that howling infinite, than be ingloriously dashed upon the lee, even if that were safety! For worm-like, then, oh! who would craven crawl to land! Terrors of the terrible! is all this agony so vain? Take heart, take heart, O Bulkington! Bear thee grimly, demigod! Up from the spray of thy ocean-perishing- straight up, leaps thy apotheosis!”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale

Vladimir Nabokov
“A wave would arrive, all out of breath, but, as it had nothing to report, it would disperse in apologetic salaams.”
Vladimir Nabokov, The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov
