Jane Bowles
“Even then she wore the look of certain fanatics who think of themselves as leaders without once having gained the respect of a single human being.”
Jane Bowles, Two Serious Ladies

Michel Foucault
“From the idea that the self is not given to us, I think there is only one practical consequence: we have to create ourselves as a work of art.”
Michel Foucault

Tatyana Tolstaya
“...a book is a delicate friend, a white bird, an exquisite being, afraid of water.

Some people touch books without washing their hands!

Some underline things in ink!

Some even tear pages out! ”
Tatyana Tolstaya, The Slynx

Samuel Beckett
“The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new.”
Samuel Beckett, Murphy
