“for he had acquired, as time went on, the firm conviction that any thought, even the most audacious, that any fiction, even the most insane, can one day materialize and see its fulfillment in space and time.”
Stefan Grabiński

“Ludwik Szatera was a passionate lover of nostalgia. He could never come to terms with the eternal passage of men, objects and events. Each moment inexorably turning into the past was to him precious, invaluable, and he witnessed its passing with a sense of inexpressible regret.”
Stefan Grabiński, In Sarah's House

“Der Mensch denkt nicht vergeblich. Kein Gedanke, auch nicht der wunderlichste, vergeht fruchtlos.”
Stefan Grabiński, Das Abstellgleis und andere Erzählungen
