André Gide (November 22, 1869 - February 19, 1951)
It is better to be hated for who you are, than to be loved for someone you are not.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity
Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself- and thus make yourself indispensable
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.
Fine clothes are good only as they supply the want of other means of procuring respect
(September 18, 1709 - December 13, 1784)
The fact is, this is like a public park. The whole spectrum of humanity comes to the library. And sometimes they stay five minutes or all day, and usually in the winter it's all day.
We've always had obstacles to overcome. But we're a family and we stick together.
