Great writers and their words.


Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
– Fyodor Dostoevsky from The Brothers Karamazov

Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it.
– Leo Tolstoy from A Confession

The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.
– David Foster Wallace from Infinite Jest

A confession and some truth. I hope the healing begins for all concerned.
