38. "Uit hoeveel verdriet is ons leven opgebouwd?Uit hoeveel verdriet dat te vermijden is?Soms denk ik wel eens dat we wanneer we doodgaan niet, zoals je altijd hoort, ons hele leven weer voorbij zien komen, maar slechts een klein deel: de uitgebleven blijken van liefde, de niet-gegeven knuffels, het medeleven dat we een ander hebben onthouden, de te lang volgehouden, nutteloze boosheid, de alleen door zichzelf gevoede boosheid. In de laatste momenten van haar leven had mijn moeder, dat weet ik zeker, mijn vader wel een complete kennel willen schenken. Maar toen was het te laat. Te laat. Pas als we ouder worden realiseren we ons de ernst van sommige dingen die we hebben gezegd, en alles waarin we tekortgeschoten zijn - uit oppervlakkigheid, egoïsme, haast - begint dan op ons hart te drukken. Maar onze tijd is al vervlogen en we kunnen niet meer terug."
Author: Susanna Tamaro

In the second group we have the men who do not make the great discovery but who see the importance and bearing of it, and who preach the gospel to the heathen. Ostwald stands absolutely at the head of this group. The last group contains the rest of us, the men who have to have things explained to us."
Author: Wilder Dwight Bancroft

I have often noticed that nationalism is at its strongest at the periphery. Hitler was Austrian, Bonaparte Corsican. In postwar Greece and Turkey the two most prominent ultra-right nationalists had both been born in Cyprus. The most extreme Irish Republicans are in Belfast and Derry (and Boston and New York). Sun Yat Sen, father of Chinese nationalism, was from Hong Kong. The Serbian extremists Miloševic and Karadžic were from Montenegro and their most incendiary Croat counterparts in the Ustashe tended to hail from the frontier lands of Western Herzegovina."
