“The insomnia I am talking about results from a mild state of possession, harmless to those around you, who sometimes even fail to notice it. It usually comes when you are completely engrossed in your work and overtakes you so completely that every aspect of your daily life becomes mechanical and provides only a colorless backdrop to action occurring only in your mind. It matters not whether at this time you are asleep or awake. The secret life pulses within you, and when you wake in the middle of the night you realize there is no way to stem its flow.”
Lyudmila Ulitskaya

“There is no escaping life. It takes what is it's due.”
Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Daniel Stein, Translator

“Собака в доме, как дефективный ребенок. Она постоянно в тебе нуждается. В тебе, твоем внимании, твоей заботе... Собаку, простите, даже на улицу надо вывести, потому что воспитанная собака скорее умрет, чем в доме нагадит... - Он посмотрел на Веселую, она грустно кивнула. - Кто, кто, кроме человека, идет на смерть за идею? Только собака!”
Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Казус Кукоцкого
