Quote of the Day (Simon Sebag Montefiore, on ‘Our Capacity to Create and Love’)

“The harshness of humanity has been constantly rescued by our capacity to create and love. Our limitless ability to destroy is matched only by our ingenious ability to recover.”—British historian Simon Sebag Montefiore, The World: A Family History of Humanity (2023)

The picture accompanying this post, showing Simon Sebag Montefiore at the literary festival "Oslo bokfestival 2011" presenting his book on Jerusalem, was taken Sept. 18, 2011, by Einarspetz.
