Dimitri I Pisarev Quotes

"Mi čitamo knjige zato da bismo čitanjem proširili granice svog ličnog iskustva. Ako nam knjiga u tom pogledu ne daje apsolutno ništa, nijednog novog fakta, nijednog samostalnog pogleda, nijene originalne ideje, ako ničim ne pokreće i ne podstiče našu misao, mi takvu knjigu nazivamo praznom i ništavnom, bez obzira na to da li je pisana u prozi ili stihu, i uvek smo spremni da autoru takve knjige sa iskrenom dobronamernošću posavetujemo da se lati pravljenja čizama ili pečenja bureka."

Quotes About Gauri

"Of the three women in Subhashs life—his mother, Gauri, Bela—there remained only one. His mothers mind was now a wilderness. There was no shape to it any longer, no clearing.

It had cleared a path for her. It had prepared her to walk away." - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri
