Famous quotes containing the word gordimer:

    The country of the tourist pamphlet always is another country, an embarrassing abstraction of the desirable that, thank God, does not exist on this planet, where there are always ants and bad smells and empty Coca-Cola bottles to keep the grubby finger- print of reality upon the beautiful.
    —Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)

    If you live in Europe ... things change ... but continuity never seems to break. You don’t have to throw the past away.
    —Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)

    The gap between the committed and the indifferent is a Sahara whose faint trails, followed by the mind’s eye only, fade out in sand.
    —Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)
