(nor)Sigrid Undset's sitat: "Menneskenes hjerter forandres aldeles intet i alle dager. Det er bare de ytre forholdende, vanene og miljø som har forandret seg, ikke følelsene, kjærligheten, skylden og ansvaret".

Short biography
Admittedly short biographical note: while in the midst of writing her two most famous works (the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy and the quatrology Master of Hestviken), for which she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1928, she was raising five children, one of whom was severely mentally handicapped, as a single woman. Albeit with a live-in nanny, this is still an extraordinary achievement!
