Charles Dickens
“...And a cool four thousand, Pip!"
I never discovered from whom Joe derived the conventional temperature of the four thousand pounds, but it appeared to make the sum of money more to him, and he had a manifest relish in insisting on its being cool.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
tags: cool, humor

Charles Dickens
“I had cherished a profound conviction that her bringing me up by hand, gave her no right to bring me up by jerks.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Roland Barthes
“Don’t bleach language, savour it instead. Stroke it gently or even groom it, but don’t “purify” it.”
Roland Barthes, The Neutral: Lecture Course at the Collège de France, 1977-1978

Roland Barthes
“Where there is meaning, there is paradigm, and where there is paradigm (opposition), there is meaning . . . elliptically put: meaning rests on conflict (the choice of one term against another), and all conflict is generative of meaning: to choose one and refuse the other is always a sacrifice made to meaning, to produce meaning, to offer it to be consumed.”
Roland Barthes, The Neutral: Lecture Course at the Collège de France, 1977-1978

Roland Barthes
“As a general rule, desire is always marketable: we don’t do anything but sell, buy, exchange desires. . . . And I think of Bloy’s words: “there is nothing perfectly beautiful except what is invisible and above all unbuyable.”
Roland Barthes, The Neutral: Lecture Course at the Collège de France, 1977-1978
