David Mitchell
“My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

David Henry Hwang
“I'm happy. Which often looks like crazy.”
David Henry Hwang, M. Butterfly

Charles Bukowski
“Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.”
Charles Bukowski

Charles Bukowski
“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski

Iain Banks
“You need to read more science fiction. Nobody who reads science fiction comes out with this crap about the end of history”
Iain Banks
