Archimedes
“Give me a place to stand and I will move the earth.”
Archimedes

Victor Hugo
“This barricade is made neither of paving stones, nor of timbers, nor of iron; it is made of two mounds, a mound of ideas and a mound of sorrows. Here misery encounters the ideal. Here the day embraces the night, and says: I will die with you and you will be born again with me.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Alan Bennett
“History is a commentary on the various and continuing incapabilities of men. What is history? History is women following behind with the bucket.”
Alan Bennett, The History Boys

Jonathan Safran Foer
“I am always sad, I think. Perhaps this signifies that I am not sad at all, because sadness is something lower than your normal disposition, and I am always the same thing. Perhaps I am the only person in the world, then, who never becomes sad. Perhaps I am lucky.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Jonathan Safran Foer
“When I was a girl, my life was music that was always getting louder.
Everything moved me. A dog following a stranger. That made me feel so much. A calendar that showed the wrong month. I could have cried over it. I did. Where the smoke from a chimney ended. How an overturned bottle rested at the edge of a table.
I spent my life learning to feel less.
Every day I felt less.
Is that growing old? Or is it something worse?
You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated
