G.K. Chesterton
“But as St. Francis did not love humanity but men, so he did not love Christianity but Christ.”
G.K. Chesterton, St. Francis of Assisi

Amor Towles
“if a man does not master his circumstances then he is bound to be mastered by them.”
Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow

Amor Towles
“The principle here is that a new generation owes a measure of thanks to every member of the previous generation. Our elders planted fields and fought in wars; they advanced the arts and sciences, and generally made sacrifices on our behalf. So by their efforts, however humble, they have earned a measure of our gratitude and respect.”
Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow

Amor Towles
“For as it turns out, one can revisit the past quite pleasantly, as long as one does so expecting nearly every aspect of it to have changed.”
Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“-That's a pretty strong opinion.
-I don't know how to have any other kind.”
