Cyrano de Bergerac
b. 3-6-1619; Paris, France

Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac, a dramatist and soldier, is best remembered for his “witty, passionate and full of vitality” character in works of fiction which have been inspired by his life story. His image is also characterized by the exagerated size of his nose which was popularized by Edmond Rostand's play.

Cyrano de Bergerac quote ~
“A kiss is a rosy dot over the 'i' of loving.”

Henri Bergson was a major philosophical influence in the first half of the 20th century. Bergson served as a philosophy professor and was awarded the 1927 Nobel Prize in Literature “in recognition of his rich and vitalizing ideas and the brilliant skill with which they have been presented”.

Henri Bergson quotes:
“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”
“There is no greater joy than that of feeling oneself a creator. The triumph of life is expressed by creation.”

née John Allyn Smith, Jr.
b. 10-25-1914; McAlester, OK
d. 1-7-1972; Minnesota

John Berryman was a major figure of the “confessional” school of poetry which “emphasizes the intimate, and sometimes unflattering, information about details of the poet's personal life, such as in poems about illness, sexuality, and despondence”.

John Berryman quotes ~
• “I didn't want to be like Yeats; I wanted to be Yeats.”
• “The artist is extremely lucky who is presented with the worst possible ordeal which will not actually kill him. At that point, he's in business.”
• “We must travel in the direction of our fear.”

b. 10-1-1847; London, England
d. 9-20-1933; India

Annie Besant was a political and women's rights activist, writer, and Theosophist, or one who holds that each religion holds a portion of truth to help humanity evolve to greater perfection.

Annie Besant quotes ~
• “Better remain silent, better not even think, if you are not prepared to act.”
• “Refusal to believe until proof is given is a rational position; denial of all outside of our own limited experience is absurd.”
• “Liberty is a great celestial Goddess, strong, beneficent, and austere, and she can never descend upon a nation by the shouting of crowds, nor by arguments of unbridled passion, nor by the hatred of class against class.”
