Bernhard Schlink QuotesBernhard Schlink is a German lawyer, Professor of the Philosophy of Law and writer. His novel The Reader, first published in 1995, became an international bestseller.
I’m not frightened. I’m not frightened of anything. The more I suffer, the more I love. Danger will only increase my love. It will sharpen it, forgive its vice. I will be the only angel you need. You will leave life even more beautiful than you entered it. Heaven will take you back and look at you and say: Only one thing can make a soul complete and that thing is love.
