“One way of looking at speech is to say that it is a constant stratagem to cover nakedness.”
Harold Pinter, Various Voices: Prose, Poetry, Politics

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”

Jorge Luis Borges
“A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.”
Jorge Luis Borges, The Aleph and Other Stories

Graham Greene
“You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.”
Graham Greene, The Third Man
