Paul Auster
“In the end, the art of hunger can be described as an existential art. It is a way of looking death in the face, and by death I mean death as we live it today: without God, without hope of salvation. Death as the abrupt and absurd end of life”
Paul Auster

Kurt Vonnegut
“If I should ever die, God forbid, I hope you will say, 'Kurt is up in heaven now.' That's my favorite joke.”
Kurt Vonnegut

Philip K. Dick
“Everybody knows that Aristotelian two-value logic is fucked.”
Philip K. Dick, VALIS

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols
