Nathaniel Hawthorne, The House of the Seven Gables

Marcel Proust
“Thanks to art, instead of seeing one world only, our own, we see that world multiply itself and we have at our disposal as many worlds as there are original artists, worlds more different one from the other than those which revolve in infinite space, worlds which, centuries after the extinction of the fire from which their light first emanated, whether it is called Rembrandt or Vermeer, send us still each one its special radiance.”
Marcel Proust

George Orwell
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
