Quotes Pratibha Liked

Geraldine Brooks
“A man's thoughts and the ability to express them come from God, and if my words find favor, may it be to his honor.”
Geraldine Brooks, People of the Book

Geraldine Brooks
“Well, from what you’ve told me, the book has survived the same human disaster over and over again. Think about it. You’ve got a society where people tolerate difference, like Spain in the Convivencia, and everything’s humming along: creative, prosperous. Then somehow this fear, this hate, this need to demonize ‘the other’—it just sort of rears up and smashes the whole society. Inquisition, Nazis, extremist Serb nationalists…same old, same old. It seems to me the book, at this point, bears witness to all that.”
Geraldine Brooks, People of the Book
