"It is not enough for us to prostrate ourselves under the tree which is Creation, and to contemplate its tremendous branches filled with stars. We have a duty to perform, to work upon the human soul, to defend the mystery against the miracle, to worship the incomprehensible while rejecting the absurd; to accept, in the inexplicable, only what is necessary; to dispel the superstitions that surround religion --to rid God of His Maggots."
"Don't give your opinions about Art and the Purpose of Life. They are of little interest and, anyway, you can't express them. Don't analyze yourself. Give the relevant facts and let your readers make their own judgments. Stick to your story. It is not the most important subject in history but it is one about which you are uniquely qualified to speak."
Orlando Esperanto's quote collection
I'm male and made my book on 3rd July 2007.
So the most restless vagabond finally longs to return to his native land and finds in his little cottage, at the breast of his wife, in the circle of his children, in the labor of supporting them, the bliss he sought in vain in the great world. - Goethe, The Sufferings of Young Werther (tr. Harry Steinhauer)
