Thomas Pynchon
“Life's single lesson: that there is more accident to it than a man can ever admit to in a lifetime and stay sane.”
Thomas Pynchon, V.

Daniel Defoe
“Books are useful only to such whose genius are suitable to the subject of them”

Blaise Pascal
“The eternal silence of these infinite spaces terrifies me”
Blaise Pascal, Pensées

Bell Hooks
“Simply put, feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression. This was a definition of feminism I offered in Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center more than 10 years ago. It was my hope at the time that it would become a common definition everyone would use. I liked this definition because it did not imply that men were the enemy. By naming sexism as the problem it went directly to the heart of the matter. Practically, it is a definition which implies that all sexist thinking and action is the problem, whether those who perpetuate it are female or male, child or adult. It is also broad enough to include an understanding of systemic institutionalized sexism. As a definition it is open-ended. To understand feminism it implies one has to necessarily understand sexism.”
Bell Hooks, Feminism is for Everybody: Passionate Politics

Cormac McCarthy
“Wrap me in the weathers of the earth, I will be hard and hard. My face will turn rain like the stones.”
