Famous quotes containing the words century and/or literature:

    Drink your fill when the jar is first opened, and when it is nearly done, but be sparing when it is half-empty; it’s a poor saving when you come to the dregs.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    To me, literature is a calling, even a kind of salvation. It connects me with an enterprise that is over 2,000 years old. What do we have from the past? Art and thought. That’s what lasts. That’s what continues to feed people and given them an idea of something better. A better state of one’s feelings or simply the idea of a silence in one’s self that allows one to think or to feel. Which to me is the same.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
