Happy Birthday, Pearl S Buck, born 26 June 1892, died 6 March 1973
10 Quotes
In a mood of faith and hope my work goes on. A ream of fresh paper lies on my desk waiting for the next book. I am a writer and I take up my pen to write.
To find joy in work is to discover the fountain of youth.
Love cannot be forced, love cannot be coaxed and teased. It comes out of heaven, unasked and unsought.
There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love, but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream — whatever that dream might be.
The basic discovery about any people is the discovery of the relationship between its men and its women.
The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
Hunger makes a thief of any man.
The truth is always exciting. Speak it, then. Life is dull without it.
I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.
One faces the future with one’s past.
Buck was an American writer and novelist who spent most of her life before 1934 in China. Her novel The Good Earth won the Pulitzer Prize in 1932. She won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1938.

God first threw humanity into Sin in order to create the opportunity for saving it through Christ’s sacrifice; the Absolute plays a game with itself - it first separates itself from itself, introduces a gap of self-misrecognition, in order to reconcile itself with itself again. This is why today’s desperate neoconservative attempts to reassert “old values”are also ultimately a failed perverse strategy of imposing prohibitions that can no longer be taken seriously.

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
