Howard Koch
“We'll always have Paris.”
Howard Koch

Richard Hughes
“Do your bit to save humanity from lapsing back into barbarity by reading all the novels you can.”
Richard Hughes

Jorge Luis Borges
“Siempre imaginé que el Paraíso sería algún tipo de biblioteca.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Julian Barnes
“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. Books make sense of life. The only problem is that the lives they make sense of are other people's lives, never your own.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

Marguerite Yourcenar
“Accepter que tel ou tel être, que nous aimions, soit mort. Accepter que tel et tel, vivants, aient eu leurs faiblesses, leurs bassesses, leurs erreurs, que nous essayons vainement de recourvrir de pieux mensonges, un peu par respect et par pitié pour eux, beaucoup par pitié pour nous-mêmes, et pour la vaine gloire d’avoir aimé seulement la perfection, l’intelligence ou la beauté. Accepter qu’ils soient morts avant leur temps, parce qu’il n’y a pas de temps. Accepter de les oublier, puisque l’oubli fait partie de l’ordre des choses. Accepter de s’en souvenir, puisqu’en secret la mémoire se câche au fond de l’oubli. Accepter même, mais en se promettant de faire mieux la prochaine fois, et à la prochaine rencontre, de les avoir maladroitement ou médiocrement aimés.”
Marguerite Yourcenar, Pellegrina e straniera
