Joseph Conrad
“Are not our lives too short for that full utterance which through all our stammerings is of course our only and abiding intention?”
Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim
tags: death, life

Edward O. Wilson
“Human existence may be simpler than we thought. There is no predestination, no unfathomed mystery of life. Demons and gods do not vie for our allegiance. Instead, we are self-made, independent, alone, and fragile, a biological species adapted to live in a biological world. What counts for long-term survival is intelligent self-understanding, based upon a greater independence of thought than that tolerated today even in our most advanced democratic societies.”
Edward O. Wilson, The Meaning of Human Existence

Gabriel García Márquez
“It's enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment.”
Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude

Gabriel García Márquez
“..the heart's memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good, and [that] thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past”
Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

John  Williams
“In his forty-third year William Stoner learned what others, much younger, had learned before him: that the person one loves at first is not the person one loves at last, and that love is not an end but a process through which one person attempts to know another.”
John Williams, Stoner
