Pramoedya Ananta Toer

“Such was the love of this grandson for his grandmother that two years after the death of his mother, when she herself fell gravely ill, he vowed to her that someday he would try to tell the world her life story.

'But why?' she asked humbly. 'I'm no one, just a girl from the coast'

'But you are everyone, Grandma,' the young Pramoedya told her. 'You are all the people who have ever had to fight to make this life their own.”
