Jeanette Winterson

Benjamin Franklin
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Benjamin Franklin

Yevgeny Zamyatin
“You are afraid of it because it is stronger than you; you hate it because you are afraid of it; you love it because you cannot subdue it to your will. Only the unsubduable can be loved.”

Immanuel Kant
“Enlightenment is man's release from his self-incurred tutelage. Tutelage is man's inability to make use of his understanding without direction from another.

'Have courage to use your own reason!'- that is the motto of enlightenment.”
Immanuel Kant, An Answer to the Question: What Is Enlightenment?
