Stephen King is definitely the king of suspense. I was drawn to this novel by watching the Kubrik film version. Many years have elapsed since then, but some of Kubrik's images still haunt me. King's novel I found equally compelling, but in a differen ...more

T.S. Eliot
“This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.”
T.S. Eliot

Victor Hugo
“Yes, the brutalities of progress are called revolutions. When they are over, this is recognised: that the human race has been harshly treated, but that it has advanced.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter - to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther ... And one fine morning ---”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Slavoj Žižek
“Liberal attitudes towards the other are characterized both by respect for otherness, openness to it, and an obsessive fear of harassment. In short, the other is welcomed insofar as its presence is not intrusive, insofar as it is not really the other. Tolerance thus coincides with its opposite. My duty to be tolerant towards the other effectively means that I should not get too close to him or her, not intrude into his space—in short, that I should respect his intolerance towards my over-proximity. This is increasingly emerging as the central human right of advanced capitalist society: the right not to be ‘harassed’, that is, to be kept at a safe distance from others.”
Slavoj Žižek, Against Human Rights

John Steinbeck
“The quality of owning freezes you forever in "I," and cuts you off forever from the "we.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
