Sadness is also a kind of defence.More Ivo Andric quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be a man, to have been born without knowing it or wanting it, to be thrown into the ocean of existence, to be obliged to swim, to exist; to have an identity; to resist the pressure and shocks from the outside and the unforeseen and unforeseeable acts - one's own and those of others - which so often exceed one's capacities? And what is more, to endure one's own thoughts about all this: in a word, to be human.More Ivo Andric quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If people would know how little brain is ruling the world, they would die of fear.More Ivo Andric quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Of everything that man erects and builds in his urge for living nothing is in my eyes better and more valuable than bridges. They are more important than houses, more sacred than shrines. Belonging to everyone and being equal to everyone, useful, always built with a sense, on the spot where most human needs are crossing, they are more durable than other buildings and they do not serve for anything secret or bad.More Ivo Andric quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What does your sorrow do while you're sleeping? It is awaken and waiting. And, when it loses patience, it wakes me up.More Ivo Andric quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
