Barry Unsworth
“I knew little of the world, as the Justice had seen, but I knew that we can lose ourlseves in the parts we play and if this continues too long we will not find our way back again.”
Barry Unsworth, Morality Play

“We have no means of understanding a fraction of the thought and science and philosophy and law that have gone to make that outside world. We simply accept it. We have grown up paying tribute to it, and that is all the most of us can do. We feel of the great world that it is simply there, something for the lucky ones to explore, and then only at the edges. It never occurs to us that we might make some contribution to it ourselves. And that is why we miss everything.”
vs nailpaul

“it appears that my bourgeois education inculcated hopelessly false notions of taste and morality, and along with them the pressing need to disseminate them by leadership. By the time I was mature enough to ofer them, society had developed and no longer felt in need of my mildewed fruits.”
Elizabeth Mavor, The Green Equinox

George Mackay Brown
“We never find what we set out hearts on. We ought to be glad of that.”
George Mackay Brown, Beside The Ocean Of Time

“There is a subtle yet profound difference between giving up and letting go' Just let go. Look at me, Moe seems to say. I can't speak, I can't move, but by my soul I know what this life is for.”
Michael Ignatieff, Scar Tissue
