Dulce Maria Cardoso
“Não há nada por que nos rirmos mas se nos rirmos não estamos sozinhos. A maneira de a directora falar não dá vontade de rir, se não estivéssemos nesta situação não nos teríamos começado a rir. Tempos conturbados. Não conseguimos parar de nos rir, as gargalhadas pegam-se umas às outras, rimo-nos, alto, mais alto, não me lembro de termos rido tanto e tão alto. São tempos conturbados, se nos rirmos não estamos sozinhos e talvez consigamos adormecer.”
Dulce Maria Cardoso, O Retorno

E.H. Gombrich
“It's bad idea to try to prevent people from knowing their own history. If you want to do anything new you must first make sure you know what people have tried before.”
E.H. Gombrich, A Little History of the World

Yevgeny Zamyatin
“You're in a bad way! Apparently, you have developed a soul.”
Yevgeny Zamyatin, We

Comte de Lautréamont
“After some hours, the dogs, exhausted by running round, almost dead, their tongues hanging out, set upon one another and, not knowing what they are doing, tear one another into thousands of pieces with incredible rapidity. Yet they do not do this out of cruelty.

One day, a glazed look in her eyes, my mother said to me: ‘When you are in bed and you hear the barking of the dogs in the countryside, hide beneath your blanket, but do not deride what they do: they have an insatiable thirst for the infinite, as you, and I, and all other pale, long-faced human beings do.’

Since that time, I have respected the dead woman’s wish. Like those dogs I feel the need for the infinite. I cannot, cannot satisfy this need. I am the son of a man and a woman, from what I have been told.

This astonishes me…I believed I was something more.”
Comte de Lautréamont, Les Chants de Maldoror

Louis-Ferdinand Céline
“A God who counts minutes and pennies, a desperate sensual God, who grunts like a pig. A pig with golden wings, who falls and falls, always belly side up, ready for caresses, that’s him, our master. Come, kiss me.”
Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Journey to the End of the Night
