More of John's books…
Jack Kerouac
“I realized these were all the snapshots which our children would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our actual night, the hell of it, the senseless emptiness.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Thomas Pynchon
“Don't forget the real business of war is buying and selling. The murdering and violence are self-policing, and can be entrusted to non-professionals. The mass nature of wartime death is useful in many ways. It serves as spectacle, as diversion from the real movements of the War. It provides raw material to be recorded into History, so that children may be taught History as sequences of violence, battle after battle, and be more prepared for the adult world. Best of all, mass death's a stimolous to just ordinary folks, little fellows, to try 'n' grab a piece of that Pie while they're still here to gobble it up. The true war is a celebration of markets.”
Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

Thomas Pynchon
“The object of life is to make sure you die a weird death. To make sure that, however it finds you, it finds you under very weird circumstances.”
Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

Thomas Pynchon
“If there is something comforting - religious, if you want - about paranoia, there is still also anti-paranoia, where nothing is connected to anything, a condition not many of us can bear for long.”
Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

Philip K. Dick
“If you think this Universe is bad, you should see some of the others.”
Philip K. Dick
