ACHIEVING our dreams

“We can no more achieve purity by impure means than we can achieve peace by means of war, or happiness of mankind through terror, or reach God through the intellect alone.”

This is a quote from the novel “Incognito” by Petru Dumitriu.

Dumitriu (1924-2002) was a Romanian-born novelist who experienced the horrors of communist oppression and war. He also lived in Germany and France and was multilingual. “Incognito” is well worth reading, one of the most moving and influential books I have read.
