Czesław Miłosz was born 30 June 1911, and died 14 August 2004In a room where
people unanimously maintain
a conspiracy of silence,
one word of truth
sounds like a pistol shot.
- Language is the only homeland.
- The voice of passion is better than the voice of reason. The passionless cannot change history.
- The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them.
- Learning. To believe you are magnificent. And gradually to discover that you are not magnificent. Enough labour for one human life.
- When a writer is born into a family, the family is finished.
Milosz was a Polish poet, prose writer and translator. He defected to the West in 1951. The Captive Mind is a classic of anti-Stalinism. Milosz became an American citizen and was awarded the 1980 Nobel Prize in Literature.
