"The artist exists because the world is not perfect" – Andrei Tarkovsky

English, writer

In Memory: “If you’re brought up with books… it’s a very good start in life.”


“It was a happy childhood home. “I think the most precious thing you can give a child is your time,” Bond says. “And I think the next most precious thing you can give a child is an interest in books.

If you’re brought up with books being part of the furniture, with a story being read to you when you go to bed at night, it’s a very good start in life. I never went to bed without a story when I was small.”

— Michael Bond, 1926-2017, Goodbye in 2017, English, writer, creator of a refugee – Paddington Bear
