Alasdair Gray
“People who care nothing for their country's stories and songs,' he said, 'are like people without a past- without a memory- they are half people”
Alasdair Gray, Poor Things

Andrei Platonov
“Inside every poor creature was a sense of some other happy destiny, a destiny that was necessary and inevitable -why, then, did they find their lives such a burden and why were they always waiting for something?”
Andrei Platonov, Soul

Katharine Hepburn
“Enemies are so stimulating.”
Katharine Hepburn

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.”
JRR Tolkein

Karel Čapek
“Everyone has the best of feelings towards mankind in general, but not towards the individual man. We'll kill men, but we want to save mankind. And that isn't right, your Reverence. The world will be an evil place as long as people don't believe in other people.”
Karel Čapek, The Absolute at Large
