Simon’s Recent Updates

“But to her, libraries were like hotels: secret villages inhabited by passing strangers from a thousand different worlds brought together just for a few hours.”
Simon Montefiore

“The greatest privilege of childhood is to live totally in the present.”
Simon Sebag Montefiore, One Night in Winter

“Power is always personal: any study of a Western democratic leader today reveals that, even in a transparent system with its short periods in office, personalities shape administrations. Democratic leaders often rule through trusted retainers instead of official ministers. In any court, power is as fluid as human personality.”
Simon Sebag Montefiore, The Romanovs: 1613-1918
