“В разговоре с женщиной есть один болезненный момент. Ты приводишь
факты, доводы, аргументы. Ты взываешь к логике и здравому смыслу. И
неожиданно обнаруживаешь, что ей противен сам звук твоего голоса...”
Dovlatov S.

“There's a reason every book, even one that isn't very serious, is shaped like a suitcase”

“Our life is but a grain of sand in the indifferent ocean of infinity.”
