Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Stronger than lover's love is lover's hate. Incurable, in each, the wounds they make.”
Euripides, Medea

John von Neumann
“If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.”
John von Neumann

Michael Ondaatje
“We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves.

I wish for all this to be marked on by body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

Adolfo Bioy Casares
“Sublime, close at hand but mysterious
With the living silence of the rose.”
Adolfo Bioy Casares, The Invention of Morel
