Seán O'Casey
“Laughter is wine for the soul - laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness - the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.”
Sean O'Casey

“In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.”

Anton Chekhov
“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov

Harriet Beecher Stowe
