James Joyce
“To learn one must be humble. But life is the great teacher.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

“Our goal isn't outrageous. We simply want to live in dignity on our own land, see a just solution for the refugees, and closure to 55 years of injustice and denial of our own existence.”
Hanan Ashrawi

Émile Zola
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
Émile Zola

Alice Munro
“The thing is to be happy,” he said. “No matter what. Just try that. You can. It gets to be easier and easier. It’s nothing to do with circumstances. You wouldn’t believe how good it is. Accept everything and then tragedy disappears.”
Alice Munro, Dear Life

Haruki Murakami
“The sense of tragedy - according to Aristotle - comes, ironically enough, not from the protagonist's weak points but from his good qualities. Do you know what I'm getting at? People are drawn deeper into tragedy not by their defects but by their virtues. Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex being a great example. Oedipus is drawn into tragedy not because of laziness or stupidity, but because of his courage and honesty. So an inevitable irony results.
[But] we accept irony through a device called metaphor. And through that we grow and become deeper human beings.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
