“It's amazing how people can sound like retards when they're talking to their girlfriend, especially if they really love her a lot. Because when you're just fucking someone you make a point of keeping your cool, but when you're really in love - it can sound pretty repulsive.”
Etgar Keret, The Nimrod Flipout
tags: love

“Translators are like ninjas. If you notice them, they’re no good.”
Etgar Keret

“There are two kinds of people, those who like to sleep next to the wall, and those who like to sleep next to the people who push them off the bed.”
Etgar Keret, The Bus Driver Who Wanted to be God and Other Stories
