NEW BOOKS

  • Anyone who has experienced real love, will have personally tasted death.
  • I cannot consider anything lost if I didn’t give it up of my own free will. 
  • Why does the bad need enemies, when the good always has enemies?
  • It is better to prosper as a slave, than to die seeking freedom. 
  • What avails me the knowledge of the philosophizing of the philosophers! Therefore are we taught that we may be united with choir of the heavenly hosts.
  • The earth is a big book, lit up by the sun and the moon, inhabited by countless living tales.
  • For every heart to be able to open up to meet others’ hearts, utterly, wholly, cosmically, a fragmented god must probably be made whole.
  • If the headwaters are muddy, it is pointless to look for clear water downstream.
  • Even if you kill a swallow, spring will still come.
  • Men cannot talk about their own failures, but they will immediately talk of others.
  • Non-existence begins when you forget or lose the sound of your mother’s voice, or else when when your mother’s voice is, by her own wish and desire, withdrawn from you. 
  • The lion’s whelps are equal, be they male of female.
  • In this world nobody withers earlier than a writer if he isn’t listened to. I want to be the sort of writer that won’t wither, if only for one person in Georgia.
  • The life of certain men is like a novel written by a mediocre writer… when you get to the end you say, ‘I wish I hadn’t read it.’
