Marek Hlasko — Polish Writer born on January 14, 1934, died on June 14, 1969

Marek Hłasko was a Polish writer... (wikipedia)

I've lost Poland. Without Poland, I go down. I've been thrown out; yet I love my country.
I can't dream about immortal fireflies, but I can fight for human freedom.
At first, one believes in love. Then one crosses a border, a border of time. Then that belief, too, is lost.
A writer without his country is nothing.
The road that led me to literature was very different from the one followed by my fellow writers in Poland.
