Flannery O'Connor
“He saw that there was something alive in it, and went near enough to read a sign that said, TWO DEADLY ENEMIES. HAVE A LOOK FREE. There was a black bear about four feet long and very thin, resting on the floor of the cage; his back was spotted with bird lime that had been shot down on him by a small chicken hawk sitting on a perch in the upper part of the same apartment. Mose of the hawk's tail was gone; the bear only had one eye.”
Flannery O'Connor, 3 by Flannery O'Connor: The Violent Bear It Away / Everything That Rises Must Converge / Wise Blood

Herman Melville
“Whatever my fate, I'll go to it laughing.”
Herman Melville

Arthur Rimbaud
“I is another.”
Arthur Rimbaud

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“I am a sick man...I am a spiteful man. I am an unattractive man. I think my liver is diseased. Then again, I don't know a thing about my illness; I'm not even sure what hurts.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Notes from Underground

Albert Camus
“Don't lies eventually lead to the truth? And don't all my stories, true or false, tend toward the same conclusion? Don't they all have the same meaning? So what does it matter whether they are true or false if, in both cases, they are significant of what I have been and what I am? Sometimes it is easier to see clearly into the liar than into the man who tells the truth. Truth, like light, blinds. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.”
Albert Camus, The Fall
