Famous quotes containing the words literature and/or century:

    The struggle of literature is in fact a struggle to escape from the confines of language; it stretches out from the utmost limits of what can be said; what stirs literature is the call and attraction of what is not in the dictionary.
    Italo Calvino (1923–1985)

    The learned are said to have seeing eyes;
    The unlearned have only two sores on their faces.
    Tiruvalluvar (c. 5th century A.D.)
