Dramatist José Echegaray was the first Spaniard to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature (shared with Mistral in 1904) “in recognition of the numerous and brilliant compositions which, in an individual and original manner, have revived the great traditions of the Spanish drama.” Echegaray was also a civil engineer, mathematician, and statesman.


Umberto Eco
Umberto Eco

Umberto Eco
b. 1-5-1932; Alessandria, Piedmont, Italy

Novelist, medievalist, semiotician, philosopher, professor, and literary critic Umberto Eco is the author of several bestselling novels, essays, academic texts and children's books.

Umberto Eco quotes ~
• “Semiotics is in principle the discipline studying everything which can be used in order to lie. If something cannot be used to tell a lie, conversely it cannot be used to tell the truth: it cannot in fact be used "to tell" at all. ”
• “A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection — not an invitation for hypnosis.”
• “To read fiction means to play a game by which we give sense to the immensity of things that happened, are happening, or will happen in the actual world. By reading narrative, we escape the anxiety that attacks us when we try to say something true about the world. This is the consoling function of narrative — the reason people tell stories, and have told stories from the beginning of time.”

Maria Edgworth quotes ~
• “Surely it is much more generous to forgive and remember, than to forgive and forget.”
• “An orator is the worse person to tell a plain fact . . .”
• “The law, in our case, seems to make the right; and the very reverse ought to be done - the right should make the law.”

Loren Eiseley
b. 9-3-1907; Lincoln, NE
b. 7-9-1977; Philadelphia

Loren Eiseley, an anthropologist, educator, philosopher, and natural science writer, was referred to as “the modern Thoreau”.

Loren Eiseley quotes ~
• “It is frequently the tragedy of the great artist, as it is of the great scientist, that he frightens the ordinary man.”
• “It was the failures who had always won, but by the time they won they had come to be called successes. This is the final paradox, which men call evolution.”
• “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”
• “If it should turn out that we have mishandled our own lives as several civilizations before us have done, it seems a pity that we should involve the violet and the tree frog in our departure.”
• “The creative element in the mind of man . . . emerges in as mysterious a fashion as those elementary particles which leap into momentary existence in great cyclotrons, only to vanish again like infinitesimal ghosts.”
• “Like the herd animals we are, we sniff warily at the strange one among us.”
