Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“I am proud of my heart alone, it is the sole source of everything, all our strength, happiness and misery. All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, The Sorrows of Young Werther

Arkady Strugatsky
“Xenology is an unnatural mixture of science fiction and formal logic. At its core is a flawed assumption—that an alien race would be psychologically human.”
Arkady Strugatsky, Roadside Picnic

Charles Bukowski
“Yes?’ he asked, looking at me over the sheet.
‘I’m a writer temporarily down on my inspirations.’
‘Oh, a writer, eh?’
‘Are you sure?’
‘No, I’m not.’
‘What do you write?’
‘Short stories mostly. And I’m halfway through a novel.’
‘A novel, eh?’
‘What’s the name of it?’
‘”The Leaky Faucet of My Doom.”‘
‘Oh, I like that. What’s it about?’
‘Everything? You mean, for instance, it’s about cancer?’
‘How about my wife?’
‘She’s in there too.”
Charles Bukowski, Factotum

René Descartes
“I think; therefore I am.”
René Descartes

Tad Williams
“You show me what someone listens to, I’ll tell you everything you want to know about his soul. (For instance, a bunch of Nickelback albums would have indicated he never had a soul in the first place.)”
Tad Williams, The Dirty Streets of Heaven
