"Having read a bunch of China Mieville recently, and then this, I think I've pinpointed where I stop liking fantasy books. It's the fight scenes. Total yawn. And the straight-up explanations of how the fantasy world works. Be oblique! I like inferr..." Read more of this review »

“A human being is primarily a bag for putting food into; the other functions and faculties may be more godlike, but in point of time they come afterwards. A man dies and is buried, and all his words and actions are forgotten, but the food he has eaten lives after him in the sound or rotten bones of his children. I think it could be plausibly argued that changes of diet are more important than changes of dynasty or even of religion....Yet it is curious how seldom the all-importance of food is recognized. You see statues everywhere to politicians, poets, bishops, but none to cooks or bacon-curers or market gardeners.”
George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier

“All progressions from a higher to a lower order are marked by ruins and mystery and a residue of nameless rage.”
Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

“In the so-called age of ignorance before Islam, our ancestors used to form their gods from dates and eat them when in need. Who is more ignorant then, dear sir, I or those who ate their gods?
You might say: “It is better for people to eat their gods than for the gods to eat them.”
But I’d respond: “Yes, but their gods were made of dates.”
--The Secret Life of Saeed, the Pessoptimist”
Emile Habiby, إميل حبيبي

“They can print statistics and count the populations in hundreds of thousands, but to each man a city consists of no more than a few streets, a few houses, a few people. Remove those few and a city exists no longer except as a pain in the memory, like a pain of an amputated leg no longer there.”
Graham Greene, Our Man in Havana

“Forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”
