„The country [ Brittany ] is very beautiful and painterly one see stimulating color tones; but the more abstract one works, the more one transforms the sketch into combinations.“

—  Jacoba van Heemskerck Dutch painter 1876 - 1923

(translation from German, Fons Heijnsbroek, 2018, original version, written by Jacoba in German:) Das land [Bretagne]] is sehr schön und farbig gibt es reizige Töne; je mehr abstract man aber arbeitet, je mehr man die Skizze zu Combinationen umarbeitet.

„It had people from all over the country and the world. The great thing about Bombay as a city was it was a magnet for anybody with talent, or ambition or hunger, or beauty, or intelligence.“

—  Jeet Thayil Indian writer 1959

On the variety of characters portrayed in his Narcopolis.
Kontext: It had people from all over the country and the world. The great thing about Bombay as a city was it was a magnet for anybody with talent, or ambition or hunger, or beauty, or intelligence. If you had any of these things and you wanted to make something of yourself, you went to Bombay and the city would reward you. I think all of that changed in 1992, when the last big riots happened in Bombay between Hindus and Muslims. Now when I go back to the city and I look at it, I can see the kind of profound impact that those riots had, and how it's changed the character of the city, and in such a profound way that I don't think it will ever change back to what it was before '92.

„I care not for these ladies,
That must be wooed and prayed;
Give me kind Amaryllis,
The wanton country maid.
Nature art disdaineth;
Her beauty is her own.“

—  Thomas Campion English composer, poet and physician 1567 - 1620

I Care Not for These Ladies (1601), reported in Arthur Henry Bullen, More lyrics from the song-books of the Elizabethan Age (1888), p. 48.
