Greg and 1 other person liked Sarah's review of Brighton Rock:
Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
"'Appalling strangeness' indeed. Beneath the dated and pathetic gangster doings, there's a lot going on here and some satisfyingly complex characters. Pinkie as tragic hero, heavy religious symbolism (pricking his palm with the pin from a paper vio..." Read more of this review »

Edgar Allan Poe
“For eyes we have no models in the remotely antique.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Ligeia

Émile Zola
“The thing is, work has simply swamped my whole existence. Slowly but surely it's robbed me of my mother, my wife, and everything that meant anything to me. It's like a germ planted in the skull that devours the brain, spreads to the trunk and the limbs, and destroys the entire body in time. No sooner am I out of bed in the morning than work clamps down on me and pins me to my desk before I've even had a breath of fresh air. It follows me to lunch and I find myself chewing over sentences as I'm chewing my food. It goes with me when I go out, eats out of my plate at dinner and shares my pillow in bed at night. It's so extremely merciless that once the process of creation is started, it's impossible for me to stop it, and it goes on growing and working even when I'm asleep. ... Outside that, nothing, nobody exists.”
Émile Zola, The Masterpiece

H.V. Morton
“Advertisements at 1 a.m. are nauseating.”
H.V. Morton, In Search Of London

Hermann Hesse
“He read the veinings of a leaf, the pattern on a mushroom cap, and divined mysteries, relations, futures, possibilities: the magic of symbols, the foreshadowing of numbers and writing, the reduction of infinitudes and multiplicities to simplicity, to system, to concept. For all these ways of comprehending the world through the mind no doubt lay within him, nameless, unnamed, but not inconceivable, not beyond the bounds of presentiment, still in the germ, but essential to his nature, part of him, growing organically within him. And if we were to go still further back beyond this Rainmaker and his time which to us seems so early and primitive, if we were to go several thousand years further back into the past, wherever we found man we would still find - this is our firm belief - the mind of man, that mind which has no beginning and always has contained everything that it later produces.”
Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game

Eugène Delacroix
“When all is said and done scholars can do no more than find in nature what is already there.”
Eugène Delacroix, The Journal of Eugene Delacroix
