Harry Truman
“When even one American - who has done nothing wrong - is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth, then all Americans are in peril.”
Harry Truman

Louise Erdrich
“I did not choose solitude. Who would? It came on me like a kind of vocation, demanding an effort that married women can’t picture. Sometimes, even now, I look on the married girls the way a wild dog might look through the window at tame ones, envying the regularity of their lives but also despising the low pleasure they get from the master’s touch.”
Louise Erdrich

James Baldwin
“We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to exist.”
James Baldwin

Cesare Pavese
“You will be loved the day when you will be able to show your weakness without the other person using it to assert his strength.”
Cesare Pavese, Il mestiere di vivere: Diario 1935-1950

Germaine de Staël-Holstein
“Who understands much, forgives much.”
Madame De Stael
