— Umberto Eco

Art is on the side of the oppressed. Think before you shudder at the simplistic dictum and its heretical definition of the freedom of art. For if art is freedom of the spirit, how can it exist within the oppressors?
— Nadine Gordimer

Stern is the on-look of necessity,Not without shudder may a human handGrasp the mysterious urn of destiny.
— shudder quotation by Friedrich von Schiller
