Paul Auster
“In other words: It seems to me that I will always be happy in the place where I am not. Or, more bluntly: Wherever I am not is the place where I am myself. Or else, taking the bull by the horns: Anywhere out of the world.”
Paul Auster, The New York Trilogy

Milan Kundera
“Kitsch is the inability to admit that shit exists”
Milan Kundera

Milan Kundera
“The senator had only one argument in his favour: his feeling. When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object. In the realm of kitsch, the dictatorship of the heart reigns supreme.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Franz Kafka
“May I kiss you then? On this miserable paper? I might as well open the window and kiss the night air.”
Franz Kafka

Milan Kundera
“Perhaps all the questions we ask of love, to measure, test, probe, and save it, have the additional effect of cutting it short. Perhaps the reason we are unable to love is that we yearn to be loved, that is, we demand something (love) from our partner instead of delivering ourselves up to him demand-free and asking for nothing but his company.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
