Ernest Gaines quotes ~
• “I have no more to say except this: We must live with our own conscience.”
• “Nietzsche said without music, life would be a mistake. To me, without books, life would be a mistake.”
• “I tried to decide just how I should respond to them. Whether I should act like the teacher that I was, or like the nigger that I was supposed to be.”
• “Sometimes you got to hurt something to help something. Sometimes you have to plow under one thing in order for something else to grow.”
• “Anytime a child is born, the old people look in his face and ask him if he's the One.”
• “Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?”
• “I hope when I die, they won't put on my tombstone, ‘He wrote Miss Jane Pittman.’ Put anything else, but don't put just that.”
• “Everything's been said, but it needs saying again.”

b. 8-14-1867; Kingston upon Thames, England
d. 1-31-1933

Novelist and playwright John Galsworthy won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932 for “for his distinguished art of narration which takes its highest form in The Forsyte Saga.”

John Galsworthy quotes ~
• “Religion was nearly dead because there was no longer real belief in future life; but something was struggling to take its place - service - social service - the ants creed, the bees creed.”
• “There is one rule for politicians all over the world: Don't say in Power what you say in opposition; if you do, you only have to carry out what the other fellows have found impossible.”
• “The beginnings and endings of all human undertakings are untidy.”
• “Idealism increases in direct proportion to one's distance from the problem.”

Federico García Lorca
b. 6-5-1898; Granada, Spain
d. 8-19-1936; Near Alfacar, Granada

Federico García Lorca was a poet, dramatist and theatre director who is thought to be one of the many thousands who were ‘disappeared’ and executed at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War by Nationalists.

Federico Garcia Lorca quotes ~
• “As I have not worried to be born, I do not worry to die.”
• “Not for a moment, beautiful aged Walt Whitman, have I failed to see your beard full of butterflies.”
• “I was lucky enough to see with my own eyes the recent stock-market crash, where they lost several million dollars, a rabble of dead money that went sliding off into the sea. Never as then, amid suicides, hysteria, and groups of fainting people, have I felt the sensation of real death, death without hope, death that is nothing but rottenness, for the spectacle was terrifying but devoid of greatness... I felt something like a divine urge to bombard that whole canyon of shadow, where ambulances collected suicides whose hands were full of rings.”
• “New York is a meeting place for every race in the world, but the Chinese, Armenians, Russians, and Germans remain foreigners. So does everyone except the blacks. There is no doubt but that the blacks exercise great influence in North America, and, no matter what anyone says, they are the most delicate, spiritual element in that world.”
