David Pratt


Quotations from This Continent Called Love:

"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference."
Elie Wiesel
Nobel Prize for Peace

"If I'd been a real philanderer, no one would have had anything to say against me. By marrying, I'm convicted of being a bad character."
Saul Bellow
Nobel Prize for Literature
