Memorable Quotations:
Danish Writers


"I do not know if you remember the tale of the girl
who saves the ship under mutiny
by sitting on the powder barrel with her lighted torch
and all the time knowing that it is empty?
This has seemed to me a charming image of the women of my time.
There they were, keeping the world in order
by sitting on the mystery of life,
and knowing themselves that there was no mystery."
--Isak Dinesen
