“Neither can I do anything to please critics belonging to the good old school of projected biography, who examine an authors work, which they do not understand, through the prism of his life, which they do not know.”

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he neer so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition.
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispins day.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“What a country calls its vital economic interests are not the things which enable its citizens to live, but the things which enable it to make war. Petrol is more likely than wheat to be a cause of international conflict.”
—Simone Weil (19091943)
