Victor Lodato
“Stella stellina,
La notte si avvicina,
La fiamma traballa,
La mucca é nella stalla.”
Victor Lodato, Edgar and Lucy

Fredrik Backman
“Bitterness can be corrosive. It can rewrite your memories as if it were scrubbing a crime scene clean, until in the end you only remember what suits you of its causes.”
Fredrik Backman, Beartown

Timothy Snyder
“The president is a nationalist, which is not at all the same thing as a patriot. A nationalist encourages us to be our worst, and then tells us that we are the best. A nationalist, 'although endlessly brooding on power, victory, defeat, revenge,' wrote Orwell, tends to be 'uninterested in what happens in the real world.' Nationalism is relativist, since the only truth is the resentment we feel when we contemplate others. As the novelist Danilo Kiš put it, nationalism 'has no universal values, aesthetic or ethical.' A patriot, by contrast, wants the nation to live up to its ideals, which means asking us to be our best selves. A patriot must be concerned with the real world, which is the only place where his country can be loved and sustained. A patriot has universal values, standards by which he judges his nation, always wishing it well—and wishing that it would do better.”
Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century

Bailey Cates
Change is inevitable, they say. Struggle is optional. our life's path deviates from what you intend. Whether you like it or not. Whether you fight it or not. Whether your heart breaks or not.”
Bailey Cates, Brownies and Broomsticks

“A strong mind is greater than a strong fist.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
