Experience is a dim lamp, which only lights the one who bears it. Louis-Ferdinand Celine
Louis-Ferdinand Céline ([selin] ( listen)) was the pen name of Dr. Louis Ferdinand Auguste Destouches ( 27 May 1894 – 1 July 1961), a French novelist,pamphleteer and physician. The name Céline was the first name of his grandmother. He developed a new style of writing that modernized French literature. However, Céline’s vocal support for the Axis powers during the Second World War and his authorship of some explicitly anti-Jewish pamphlets, has meant that his legacy as a cultural icon is not without controversy.
Looks like a nice guy but a raging bigot.
