Quotes bring Enlightenment

Have your say

FAMOUS quotes from some of Edinburgh’s best-known literary figures will be shone on to buildings in the New Town as part of a £100,000 project.

The Enlightenment initiative will see wise words from the likes of David Hume and Adam Smith beamed on to structures on Rose Street, George Street, Charlotte Square and St Andrew Square. Organisers said the scheme will raise awareness of how important a role the Capital played in educating the rest of the world.

Ali Bowden, director of the City of Literature Trust, said: “Enlighten will match the architectural brilliance of this historic city with our world-renowned literature.”
