Quotes From Howards End, by E.M. Forster:
"Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer. Only connect, and the beast and the monk, robbed of the isolation that is life to either, will die."
"I am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars."
"Death destroys a man: the idea of Death saves him."
I remember reading A Passage to India in high school, and finding it transformative. Now I'm reading Howard's End, and loving every page.
