Maybe your country is only a place you make up in your own mind. Something you dream about and sing about. Maybe it's not a place on the map at all, but just a story full of people you meet and places you visit, full of books and films you've been to. I'm not afraid of being homesick and having no language to live in. I don't have to be like anyone else. I'm walking on the wall and nobody can stop me.More Hugo Hamilton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Maybe you have to live under cover for a while before you can find your true character.More Hugo Hamilton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People say you're born innocent, but it's not true. You inherit all kinds of things that you can do nothing about. You inherit your identity, your history, like a birthmark that you can't wash off. ... We are born with our heads turned back, but my mother says we have to face into the future now. You have to earn your own innocence, she says. You have to grow up and become innocent.More Hugo Hamilton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
