„There was a time when only wise books were read
helping us to bear our pain and misery.“

—  Czeslaw Milosz Polish, poet, diplomat, prosaist, writer, and translator 1911 - 2004

Kontext: There was a time when only wise books were read
helping us to bear our pain and misery.

as leafing through a thousand works fresh from psychiatric clinics. And yet the world is different from what it seems to be
and we are other than how we see ourselves in our ravings.
