Plato
“Even the best of writings are but a reminiscence of what we know...”
Plato, Phaedrus

Tamera Alexander
“Just as hundreds of brushstrokes comprised a finished canvas, people were made up of a lifetime of experiences, both good and bad. And without knowing what someone had endured, it was impossible to truly know them—and accept them—for who they were.”
Tamera Alexander, A Lasting Impression

Vasily Grossman
“we often make fun of intellectuals for their doubts, their split personalities, their Hamlet-like indecisiveness. When I was young I despised that side of myself. Now, though, I’ve changed my mind: humanity owes many great books and great discoveries to people who were indecisive and full of doubts; they have achieved at least as much as the simpletons who never hesitate. And when it comes to the crunch, they too are prepared to go to the stake; they stand just as firm under fire as the people who are always strong-willed and resolute.”
Vasily Grossman, Life and Fate

Elizabeth Bard
“I’m a perfectionist, which means I am often ungrateful.”
Elizabeth Bard, Picnic in Provence: A Memoir with Recipes

James Joyce
“But can those have been possible seeing that they never were? Or was that only possible which came to pass?”
James Joyce, Ulysses by James Joyce
