A thorough, comprehensive biography of my favorite russian XX century writer/poet/visionary. Helped me put all his work into perspective. Strange to think that he's generally considered "funny" or, at best, "absurdist", when really it's all very trag ...more

Jonathan Safran Foer
“Humans are the only animal that blushes, laughs, has religion, wages war, and kisses with lips. So in a way, the more you kiss with lips, the more human you are. And the more you wage war.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Jonathan Safran Foer
“She wants to know if I love her, that's all anyone wants from anyone else, not love itself but the knowledge that love is there, like new batteries in the flashlight in the emergency kit in the hall closet.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Oscar Wilde
“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde

Anthony Bourdain
“Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter-faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn.

To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.

Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It's healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I've worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold.

Oh, I'll accomodate them, I'll rummage around for something to feed them, for a 'vegetarian plate', if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine.”
Anthony Bourdain

David Mitchell
“We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love.”
David Mitchell, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet
