Zbigniew Herbert

Study the world's skin before you set out to look for its heart.More Zbigniew Herbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I turn to history not for lessons but to confront my experience with the experience of others and to win for myself a sense of responsibility for the state of the human conscience.More Zbigniew Herbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Inanimate objects are always correct and cannot, unfortunately, be reproached with anything. I have never observed a chair shift from one foot to another, or a bed rear on its hind legs. And tables, even when they are tired, will not dare to bend their knees. I suspect that objects do this from pedagogical considerations, to reprove us constantly for our instability.More Zbigniew Herbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And if the City falls and one survives
he shall carry the City within on the roads of exile
he shall be the CityMore Zbigniew Herbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
