Quotes Evan Liked

Patrick Süskind
“He succeeded in being considered totally uninteresting. People left him alone. And that was all he wanted.”
Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Patrick Süskind
“For people could close their eyes to greatness, to horrors, to beauty, and their ears to melodies or deceiving words. But they couldn't escape scent. For scent was a brother of breath. Together with breath it entered human beings, who couldn't defend themselves against it, not if they wanted to live. And scent entered into their very core, went directly to their hearts, and decided for good and all between affection and contempt, disgust and lust, love and hate. He who ruled scent ruled the hearts of men.”
Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Patrick Süskind
“He realized that all his life he had been a nobody to everyone. What he now felt was the fear of his own oblivion. It was as though he did not exist.”
Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
