Chinua Achebe
“I do not see that it is necessary for any people to prove to another that they build cathedrals or pyramids before they can be entitled to peace and safety.”
Chinua Achebe, The Education of a British-Protected Child: Essays

Hannah Arendt
“Not only does the actual meaning of every event always transcend any number of past "causes" which we may assign to it, this past itself comes into being only with the event itself.”
Hannah Arendt

Terry Eagleton
“Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs.”
Terry Eagleton, Why Marx Was Right

Italo Calvino
“All that can be done is for each one of us to invent our own ideal library of our classics; and I would say that one half of it should consist of books we have read and that have meant something for us, and the other half of books which we intend to read and which we suppose might mean something to us. We should also leave a section of empty spaces for surprises and chance discoveries.”
Italo Calvino

Richard Flanagan
“And this sense, this feeling of communion, would at moments overwhelm him. At such times he had the sensation that there was only one book in the universe, and that all books were simply portals into this greater ongoing work—an inexhaustible, beautiful world that was not imaginary but the world as it truly was, a book without beginning or end.”
Richard Flanagan, The Narrow Road to the Deep North
