“Summers in New York City’s Barrio were unbearable. Even when there was a cool spell, it seemed a long time before the dry fresh air could find a way past the concrete an asphalt, into the crowded buildings whch had become blazing furnaces.” Nilda

née Jean-Baptiste Poquelin
b. 1-15-1622; Paris, France
d. 2-17-1673; Paris (pulmonary tuberculosis)

Molière was a playwright and actor considered one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. Molière's best-known drama today is probably the satirical Le Misanthrope (The Misanthrope), which portrayed the hypocrisies of aristocratic society and the flaws of all humans.

FYI - Molière used a stage name to spare his prosperous bourgeois father embarrasment for having son who chose acting as a career.

Molière quotes ~
• “A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him, and the best reply to unseemly behavior is patience and moderation.”
• “As the purpose of comedy is to correct the vices of men, I see no reason why anyone should be exempt.”
• “Don't appear so scholarly, pray. Humanize your talk, and speak to be understood.”
• “Every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows.”
• “It infuriates me to be wrong when I know I'm right.”
• “It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.”
• “Of all follies there is none greater than wanting to make the world a better place.”
• “Of all the noises known to man, opera is the most expensive.”

Theodor Mommsen
b. 11-30-1817; Schleswig (Germany)
d. 11-1-1903

Theodor Mommsen was awarded the second Nobel Prize in Literature in 1902 for “the greatest living master of the art of historical writing, with special reference to his monumental work, A History of Rome.” Mommsen, regarded as the greatest classist of the 19th century, was also influential in the spheres of law, politics, and archaeology.

Theodor Mommsen quotes ~
• “Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.”
• “The writer of history is perhaps closer to the artist than the scholar.”
• “History has a Nemesis for every sin.”
• “History is neither written nor made without love or hate.”
• “Honest lack of knowledge is less harmul than false knowledge.”

Michel Eyquem de Montaigne
b. 2-28-1533; Château de Montaigne, Aquitaine, France
d. 9-3-1592; Château de Montaigne (quinsy)

Montaigne is noted for bringing the essay into prominence during the French Renaissance period (late 15th to early 17th century).

Montaigne stated his goal was to describe humans, and especially himself, with utter frankness, being inspired by the work of Plutarch, Erasmus, Thomas More and Guillaume Budé.

His contribution of thought and style had great influence on French and English literature in the works of René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and perhaps William Shakespeare.

Montaigne quotes ~
• “What do I know?”
• “A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.”
• “Confidence in others' honesty is no light testimony of one's own integrity.”
• “Every man bears the whole stamp of the human condition.”
• “For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.”
• “I have never seen a greater monster or miracle than myself.”

Lucy Maud Montgomery

Lucy Maud Montgomery
b. 11-30-1874; Prince Edward Island, Canada
d. 4-24-1942

Author Lucy Maud Montgomery is best known for a series of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables that was first published in 1908. Anne became the basis of series of novels and made Montgomery an international figure.

Montogomery's real life loss of her mother to tuberculosis and the shuffling of her care among grandparents and then with a difficult step-mother seems to be the basis of the the Anne character. Mark Twain called Anne “the dearest and most moving and delightful child since the immortal Alice”.

L.M. Montgomery quotes ~
• “We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.”
• “I am simply a ‘book drunkard.’ Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.”
• “It's not what the world holds for you. It's what you bring to it.”
• “There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting.”
