The Labyrinth of Solitude and Other Writings by Octavio Paz
"There was a common joke I used to hear a lot when I was a teenager, and that was "Call someone from Mexico a Mexican and they will get angry and tell you they are not Mexican." I found it funny at the time because it seemed to work every time. But..." Read more of this review »

"Is guy who streaks in front of Jason's Deli and drops HBWR in Bob Woodruff Park."
Misery Loves Comedy by Ivan Brunetti
"Yet another self-aggrandizing catalogue of grievances a cishet white male feels somehow compelled to air for the rest of us, fully believing that this is just TELLIN' IT LIKE IT IS. In reality, this has about as much to say on the human condition..." Read more of this review »

James Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin

Hermann Hesse
“To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do. ”
Hermann Hesse

James Baldwin
“Trust life, and it will teach you, in joy and sorrow, all you need to know.”
James Baldwin

Vladimir Nabokov
“Listen: I am ideally happy. My happiness is a kind of challenge. As I wander along the streets and the squares and the paths by the canal, absently sensing the lips of dampness through my worn soles, I carry proudly my ineffable happiness. The centuries will roll by, and schoolboys will yawn over the history of our upheavals; everything will pass, but my happiness , dear, my happiness will remain,in the moist reflection of a street lamp, in the cautious bend of stone steps that descend into the canal's black waters, in the smiles of a dancing couple, in everything with which God so generously surrounds human loneliness.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Selected Letters, 1940-1977

Henry Miller
“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such”
Henry Miller
