Thornton Wilder
“But soon we shall die and all memory of those five will have left the earth, and we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.”
Thornton Wilder

Marcel Proust
“We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.”
Marcel Proust

Desmond Tutu
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
Desmond Tutu

Alasdair Gray
“Work as if you live in the early days of a better nation.”
Alasdair Gray

Luigi Pirandello
“The capacity for deluding ourselves that today's reality is the only true one, on the one hand, sustains us, but on the other, it plunges us into an endless void, because today's reality is destined to prove delusion for us tomorrow; and life doesn't conclude. It can't conclude. Tomorrow if it concludes, it's finished.”
Luigi Pirandello, One, No One and One Hundred Thousand
