Project 51

51 de doamne ale literaturii internationale. 51 de carti (a naibii surorile Bronte, 3 in 1). 51 de momente inghetate in timp. Sunt intimidata si infricosata, nu cunosc nici jumate din numele de pe lista asta. Ce mici suntem in comparatie cu grandiosul care ne inconjoara si cum ne inchidem ochii in detrimentul cunoasterii si in favoarea stagnarii sau, mai rau, a regresului. Si ne mai si plangem de plictiseala.

Atatea de spus si atatea de facut, cand o sa am timp pentru toate intr-o singura viata de om?
