About the project

“The more I read, the more I felt connected across time to other lives and deeper sympathies. I felt less isolated. I wasn’t floating on my little raft in the present; there were bridges that led over to solid ground. Yes, the past is another country, but one that we can visit, and once there we can bring back the things we need.”  —Jeanette Winterson

“This is one moment,
But know that another
Shall pierce you with a sudden painful joy.”
—TS Eliot
