The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

George Bernard Shaw
“The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.”
George Bernard Shaw

Haruki Murakami
“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Jack Kerouac
“I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another til I drop.”
Jack Kerouac

“Perhaps we know only by comparing, by drawing distinctions from and similarities to what we already know. But when we use our terms of comparison to shut off any understanding of our connections with one another as human beings, we risk becoming something less than human ourselves. (7)”
Martha Minow, Making All the Difference: Inclusion, Exclusion, and American Law

Azar Nafisi
“In all great works of fiction, regardless of the grim reality they present, there is an affirmation of life against the transience of that life, an essential defiance. This affirmation lies in the way the author takes control of reality by retelling it in his own way, thus creating a new world. Every great work of art, I would declare pompously, is a celebration, an act of insubordination against the betrayals, horrors and infidelities of life. The perfection and beauty of form rebels against the ugliness and shabbiness of the subject matter.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran
