Яков Голосовкер
“И явился Зевс Асклепию таким, каким являлся титанам в битве: огромный, со страшилищем-эгидой на груди и перуном в руке, средь громов и молний. Притихло все живое в лесах и горах Пелиона, укрываясь от блеска и грохота громовых ударов.
А мальчик-бог сказал:
- Мне не страшно. Не сжег ты меня блеском своей славы. Ты только бог и не больше. А мир огромно-большой, и мысль Хирона больше тебя, владыки Олимпа.
Удивился Молниевержец, свергающий в тартар титанов, отваге мальчика-бога.”
Яков Голосовкер, Сказания о титанах

Ernest Hemingway
“I have never seen or heard of such a fish. But I must kill him. I am glad we do not have to try to kill the stars.” Imagine if each day a man must try to kill the moon, he thought. The moon runs away. . . . Then he was sorry for the great fish that had nothing to eat and his determination to kill him never relaxed in his sorrow for him. . . . There is no one worthy of eating him from the manner of his behavior and his great dignity. I do not understand these things, he thought. But it is good that we do not have to try to kill the sun or the moon or the stars. It is enough to live on the sea and kill our true brothers.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

Aleister Crowley
“Further, an excess of legislation defeats its own ends. It makes the whole population criminals, and turns them all into police and police spies. The moral health of such a people is ruined for ever; only revolution can save it.”
Aleister Crowley, Cocaine: Impressions & Opinions

Яков Голосовкер
“Сказал Феникс:
- Ты учил нас, Хирон, что, стоя над бездной, надо бесстрашно заглядывать в ее глубь и приветствовать жизнь, что жизнь - это радость подвига. Ты учил нас, что, когда ходишь над самой черной бездной по самому краю, надо смотреть в лазурь. Теперь и ты, Хирон, бессмертный, стоишь, как и мы, герои, на краю бездны. Куда же ты смотришь?
И ответил Хирон:
- Я бессмертен, но подвержен страданию смертных. Когда чаша страданий так переполнена, что перетекает через край и в ней тонет мысль, тогда отдают эту чашу обратно жизни. Всякому страданию дано переходить в радость. Одним страданием не живут.
Смутили слова Хирона его друзей, но никто еще не понял, что задумал мудрый кентавр. Ведь он был все-таки бессмертен.
- Скажи, что ты знаешь об этом, Геракл? - спросил Феникс полубога, сына Зевса.
Ответил Геракл:
- Я не умею знать - я делаю. Я не заглядываю в бездну - я спускаюсь в нее, чтобы вынести оттуда Ужас бездны на свет дня. Я не умею ни перед чем отступать и хожу по любому краю.
Сказал тихо Хирон:
- Ты найдешь свой край, Геракл. Но слова твои меня радуют.
Тогда спросил Феникс Киклопа:
- Почему ты молчишь, Телем? И ответил Телем:
- Кто потерял небо, для того и темная земная бездна становится небом. Уже нет для меня края и глубины бездны, и мне некуда заглядывать. Я сам в бездне. Не придешь ли ты и за мной, Геракл?
Ответил Геракл:
- Приду.”
Яков Голосовкер, Сказания о титанах

“From the managerial perspective, Sir Oliver Humperdink, a heinous sort for most of his career, said the release of pentup emotions might even have been healthy for mind and soul. "As heels, we were able to be as annoying and politically incorrect’ as possible.We were able to say and do what everyone probably wanted to say and do, but, for one reason or another, could never, ever get away with. And, by being able to do so, I generally found that my fellow heels were much more 'easygoing' than our babyface counterparts who had to 'toe the line.”
Greg Oliver, The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Heels

Standard Disposal Procedure (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 18, 2012 03:54AM
Description: 2009, Yerevan, Armenia found the style closer to that of Mary Shelley for "Standard Disposal Procedure".
The Cold (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 13, 2012 09:11AM
Description: 2009, Yerevan, Armenia finds the style of this story close to that of J. D. Salinger. Interesting, I think the "Good Day for Bananafish" influence would be obvious both in this story and in "Naichinge-Ryu", but that a computer algorithm could see it too?
The Legend of Cain (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 13, 2012 07:29AM
Description: A reinterpretation of the Scripture story of ultimate sacrifice. 2009, Yerevan, Armenia finds it close to James Joyce's style.
The Nightingale (Romance)
8 chapters   —   updated Aug 13, 2012 06:59AM
Description: The translation of my semi-autobiographical short story into English. "The Nightingale" took third prize at "Havaqatsu" writing contest on June 2, 2012. says the style of the short story is like L. Frank Baum; I believe that's because of my abuse of words "child" and "little one" in dialogues. I hope you'll enjoy it; this is my first work translated into English and the style won't be as smooth as I would like and you might even find adverbs in the text. 2012, Yerevan, Armenia
Swing Me (Literature & Fiction)
7 chapters   —   updated Aug 11, 2012 02:50AM
Description: A troubled young woman, a winter park, swings and seven days. 2009, Tsakhkadzor, Armenia The original story might be one of my best-known Armenian-language short stories, I had some positive feedback from several literature communities. says the style is that of Arthur C. Clarke. Why? I have no idea:) Strange to see how the mild erotic innuendo of the original story reads so open when written in English.
