Hermann Hesse: 2 July 1877 - 9 August 1962: ‘If we were not something more than unique human beings, if each one of us could really be done away with once and for all by a single bullet, storytelling would lose all purpose.’ Forewords to Demian by Hermann Hesse.
Julian Fellowes: 17 August 1949: As an actor, Julian Fellowes seemed doomed to be an actor of background, of someone who was almost never noticed in his various roles in more than three decades; but as a screen writer, he is destined to be great. From Gosford Park to Downton Abbey, his pen, observant, insightful, at times delightful, has given us a world of yesterday, elegant, exquisite, fragile, sutble, long gone but still so real.

Laurie Lee: 26 June 1914 - 13 May 1997
Luigi Barzini Jr.: 21 December 1908 - 30 March 1984

Ninon de lenclos: 10 November 1620 - 17 October 1705: She is called "une femme complete" (a complete woman), she has beauty and brain, she is free minded and full of vitality, she loves and she is loved, she writes and she writes beautifully. As a prolific letter, she has written many letters to Marquis de Sevigne, which was edited and translated into the book called Life, Letters, and Epicurean Philosophy of Ninon de L'Enclos, which alone is enough to establish her as an aclaimed writer.
