“Please stop putting quotes from Nietzsche at the end of your emails. Five years ago you were laughing your guts out over American Pie 2. What — suddenly you’ve magically turned into Noam Chomsky?”
Douglas Coupland, JPod

Jorge Luis Borges
“We are as ignorant of the meaning of the dragon as we are of the meaning of the universe.”
Jorge Luis Borges, The Book of Imaginary Beings

Franz Kafka
“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.”
Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis

Jonathan Safran Foer

Love me, because love doesn't exist, and I have tried everything that does.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated
