Thomas Browne

17th Century English writer

Browne is a cracked archangel.

—Herman Melville

It smells in every word of the sepulchre.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

The iniquity of oblivion blindly scatters her poppyseed and when wretchedness falls upon us one summer’s day like snow, all we wish for is to be forgotten. These are the circles Browne’s thoughts describe.

—W. G. Sebald
