“Each jubilating hand hand the potential to vivisect, each hailing mouth had the power to condemn someone to death.”
Moses Isegawa, Abyssinian Chronicles

Haruki Murakami
“No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves”
Haruki Murakami, Birthday Stories

Daisaku Ikeda
“In other words, that works of history are mere collections of facts. It is fiction alone that can show us the true nature of human beings”
Daisaku Ikeda, On The Japanese Classics: Conversations And Appreciations

V.S. Naipaul
“Out of all its squalor and human decay, its eruptions of butchery, India produced so many people of grace and beauty, ruled by elaborate courtesy. Producing too much life, it denied the value of life; yet it permitted a unique human development to so many. Nowhere were people so heightened, rounded and individualistic; nowhere did they offer themselves so fully and with such assurance. To know Indians was to take a delight in people as people; every encounter was an adventure. I did not want India to sink; the mere thought was painful.”
V.S. Naipaul, An Area of Darkness

Yasushi Inoue
“I want to live so that everything around me remains clean. I want to think about other people more. Pushing people out of the way and trying to climb over their heads are no good. Chasing nothing but money – that's no good eiher, like knocking your brains out trying to be a little more famous, a little more powerful. To hear the birds song and to say "Ah, they're singing!" To see the flowers and to say "Ah they're blooming!" That,s the way to live.”
Yasushi Inoue
