Michael Ondaatje
“And it would be a spare life he would be certain to lead as a schoolteacher in some urban location. But he had a serenity that came with the choice of the life he wanted to live. And this serenity and certainty I have seen only among those who have the armour of books close by.”
Michael Ondaatje, The Cat's Table

“My grandfather always said that living is like licking honey off a thorn.”
Louis Adamic

Viktor E. Frankl
“The meaning of life is to give life meaning.”
Viktor E. Frankl

U.G. Krishnamurti
“Society has put before you the ideal of a 'perfect man'. No matter in which culture you were born, you have scriptural doctrines and traditions handed down to you to tell you how to behave. You are told that through due practice you can even eventually come into the state attained by the sages, saints and saviors of mankind. And so you try to control your behavior, to control your thoughts, to be something unnatural.”
U.G. Krishnamurti

Walter Mosley
“A peasant that reads is a prince in waiting.”
Walter Mosley, The Long Fall
