More From Andre Gide
- "It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace."
- "To read a writer is for me not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him and travel in his company."
- "Old hands soil, it seems, whatever they caress, but they too have their beauty when they are joined in prayer. Young hands were made for caresses and the sheathing of love. It is a pity to make them join too soon."
