Vicky liked a quote
Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier
“Sometimes I go to the beach and stand facing the wind, which I wish were icy, colder than we know it in these parts. I wish it would blow all the hackneyed words, all the insipid habits of language out of me so that I could come back with a cleansed mind, cleansed of the banalities of the same talk.”
Pascal Mercier

Pascal Mercier
“One who would really like to know himself would have to be a restless, fanatical collector of disappointments, and seeking disappointing experiences must be like an addiction, the all-determining addiction of his life, for it would stand so clearly before his eyes that disappointment is not a hot, destroying poison, but rather a cool calming balm that opens our eyes to the real contours of ourselves.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“You can never have for yourself someone who isn't on good terms with himself.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

Pascal Mercier
“I often feel an aversion, even disgust at the same words written and spoken over and over – at the same expressions, phrases, and metaphors repeated. And the worst is, when I listen to myself I have to admit that I too endlessly repeat the same things. They’re so horribly frayed and threadbare, these words, worn out by constant overuse. Do they still have any meaning?”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“And for a moment I thought there were no more ghosts there than those of absence and loss, and that the light that smiled on me was borrowed light, only real as long as I could hold it in my eyes, second by second.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón
