Amara Lakhous
“So many people consider their work a daily punishment. Whereas I love my work as a translator. Translation is a journey over a sea from one shore to the other. Sometimes I think of myself as a smuggler: I cross the frontier of language with my booty of words, ideas, images, and metaphors.”
Amara Lakhous, Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio

Marguerite Duras
“Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.”
Marguerite Duras

Eudora Welty
“Indeed, learning to write may be part of learning to read. For all I know, writing comes out of a superior devotion to reading.”
Eudora Welty, On Writing

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Selected Poems

Simone de Beauvoir
“She was ready to deny the existence of space and time rather than admit that love might not be eternal.”
Simone de Beauvoir, The Mandarins
