Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
"I typically don't like books that verge on horror, but the Southern Reach series is the exception. Jeff shows how something can be beautiful and terrifying at the same time. He also perfectly captures that moment - when you realize how big the uni..." Read more of this review »

Woody Allen
“I took a test in Existentialism. I left all the answers blank and got 100.”
Woody Allen

Frank Zappa
“For the record, folks; I never took a shit on stage and the closest I ever came to eating shit anywhere was at a Holiday Inn buffet in Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 1973.”
Frank Zappa, The Real Frank Zappa Book

Woody Allen
“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”
Woody Allen

John Green
“What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

John Green
“I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska
