“Every day, a piece of music, a short story, or a poem dies because its existence is no longer justified in our time. And things that were once considered immortal have become mortal again, no one knows them anymore. Even though they deserve to survive.”
Elfriede Jelinek, The Piano Teacher

“He lies like a book. And he reads a lot of books.”
Elfriede Jelinek, Wonderful, Wonderful Times

“Vice is basically the love of failure.”
Elfriede Jelinek, Pianolærerinnen
