Hjalmar Söderberg
“We know so little about one another. We embrace a shadow and love a dream.”
Hjalmar Söderberg, Doctor Glas

J.B. Priestley
“One of the delights beyond the grasp of youth is that of Not Going. Not to have an invitation for the dance, the party, the picnic, the excursion is to be diminished. To have an invitation and then not to be able to go -- oh cursed spite! Now I do not care the rottenest fig whether I receive an invitation or not. After years of illusion, I finally decided I was missing nothing by Not Going. I no longer care whether I am missing anything or not.”
J.B. Priestley, Delight

Edmund Gosse
“The man who satisfies a ceaseless intellectual curiousity probably squeezes more out of life in the long run than anyone else.”
Edmund Gosse

“All religions are founded on the fear of the many and the cleverness of the few.”

W. Somerset Maugham
“What do we any of us have but our illusions? And what do we ask of others but that we be allowed to keep them?”
W Somerset Maugham
