Andre Neher on hope

April 21, 2009

A very interesting Jewish philosophical take on silence especially. I stumbled on to Neher recently. Loving him so far. I sort of read him as a French answer/companion to Aharon Appelfeld, who is awesome in his own right. However, everything’s better in the original French.

L’espoir n’est pas dans le rire et dans la plénitude.
L’espoir est dans les larmes, dans le risque et dans leur silence
— André Neher, L’Exil de la parole

In other news, I got me some Zola from The Strand. Also, in keeping with the French theme, here’s a song I love. You should too.
