Virginia Woolf
“I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.”
Virginia Woolf, The Letters of Virginia Woolf: Volume Three, 1923-1928

Theodore Sturgeon
“Science fiction, outside of poetry, is the only literary field which has no limits, no parameters whatsoever.”
Theodore Sturgeon

Bruno Schulz
“The possibility suggests itself that no dreams, however absurd or senseless, are wasted in the universe. Embedded in the dream is a hunger for its own reification, a demand that imposes an obligation on reality and that grows imperceptibly into a bona fide claim, an IOU clamoring for payment.”
Bruno Schulz, The Street of Crocodiles
tags: dreams

David Wojnarowicz
“I want to throw up because we're supposed to quietly and politely make house in this killing machine called America and pay taxes to support our own slow murder and I'm amazed we're not running amok in the streets, and that we can still be capable of gestures of loving after lifetimes of all this.”
David Wojnarowicz, Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration

Arkady Strugatsky
“Strange department, this. Their motto was: "The comprehension of Infinity requires infinite time." I did not argue with that, but then they derived an unexpected conclusion from it: Therefore work or not, it´s all the same."
In the interests of not increasing the entropy of the universe, they did not work.”
Arkady Strugatsky, Понедельник начинается в субботу
