Insurgent by Veronica Roth
“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.”
Veronica Roth

Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre
“I looked anxiously around me: the present, nothing but the present. Furniture light and solid, rooted in its present, a table, a bed, a closet with a mirror-and me. the true nature of the present revealed itself: it was what exists, and all that was not present did not exist. The past did not exist. Not at all. Not in things, not even in my thoughts. It is true that I had realized a long time ago that mine had escaped me. But until then I had believed that it had simply gone out of my range. For me the past was only a pensioning off: it was another way of existing, a state of vacation and inaction; each event, when it had played its part, put itself politely into a box and became an honorary event: we have so much difficulty imagining nothingness. Now I knew: things are entirely what they appear to be-and behind them... there is nothing.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

scratched, ripped off his own flesh,
his layers
Bloody, raw, completely blunt, pure,

All is clear in the violent red
In the blood, in the teeth, in the aggression, in the c..." Read more of this review »

“I do not in the least underestimate bisexuality. . . I expect it to provide all further enlightenment.”
Sigmund Freud

Jean-Paul Sartre
“It's quite an undertaking to start loving somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment right at the start where you have to jump across an abyss: if you think about it you don't do it.”
Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea

Veronica Roth
“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.”
Veronica Roth, Insurgent

Kurt Vonnegut
“There is no peace, I'm sorry to say. We find it. We lose it. We find it again. We lose it again.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slapstick or Lonesome No More!

Leo Tolstoy
“And not only the pride of intellect, but the stupidity of intellect. And, above all, the dishonesty, yes, the dishonesty of intellect. Yes, indeed, the dishonesty and trickery of intellect.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
