Joseph O'Neill
“Perhaps the relevant truth is that we all find ourselves in temporal currents and that unless you're paying attention you'll discover, often too late, that an undertow of weeks or of years has pulled you deep into trouble.”
Joseph O'Neill, Netherland

Frederick Seidel
“Too much is almost enough”
Frederick Seidel, Ooga-Booga: Poems

Leonard Michaels
“Something Evil

I said, "Ikstein stands outside the door for a long time before he knocks. Did you suspect that? Did you suspect that he stands there listening to what we say before he knocks?" She said, "Did you know you're crazy?" I said, "I'm not crazy. The expression on his face, when I open the door, is giddy and squirmy. As if he'd been doing something evil, like listening outside our door before he knocked." She said, "That's Ikstein's expression. Why do you invite him here? Leave the door open. He won't be able to listen to us. You won't make yourself crazy imagining it." I said, "Brilliant, but he isn't due for an hour and I won't sit here with the door open." She said, "I hate to listen to you talk this way. I won't be involved in your lunatic friendships." She opened the door. Ikstein stood there, giddy and squirmy.”
Leonard Michaels, I Would Have Saved Them If I Could

Philip Roth
“You cannot observe people through an ideology. Your ideology observes for you.”
Philip Roth

Saul Bellow
“There is no limit to the amount of intelligence invested in ignorance when the need for illusion runs deep.”
Saul Bellow
