Literary Birthday - 2 September
Happy Birthday, Joseph Roth, born 2 September 1894, died 27 May 1939
- A lot of truths about the living world are recorded in bad books; they are just badly written.
- The world to come will be like this triangular railroad junction, raised to some unknown power. The earth has lived through several evolutionary stages - but following always natural laws. It is presently experiencing a new one, which follows constructive, conscious, and no less elemental laws. Regret for the passing of the old forms is like the grief of some antediluvian creature for the disappearance of a prehistoric habitat.
- Only the small things in life are important.
Roth was an Austrian-Jewish journalist and novelist, best known for his family saga Radetzky March, Job, and his essay, The Wandering Jews.
