Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“El hombre desea mucho y necesita poco, vista la brevedad de su vida.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Hermann und Dorothea

Don Carpenter
“How do you wake up? It was one thing to know that you had been asleep all your life, but something else to wake up from it, to find out you were really alive and it wasn't anybody's fault but your own. Of course that was the problem.

All right. Everything is a dream. Nothing hangs together. You move from one dream to another and there is no reason for the change. Your eyes see things and your ears hear, but nothing has any reason behind it. It would be easier to believe in God. Then you could wake up and yawn and stretch and grin at a world that was put together on a plan of mercy and death, punishment for evil, joy for good, and if the game was crazy at least it had rules. But that didn't make sense. It had never made any sense. The trouble was, now that he was not asleep and not awake, what he saw and heard didn't make sense either.

Mishmash, he thought. You know enough to know how you feel is senseless, but you don't know enough to know why.”
Don Carpenter, Hard Rain Falling

Lucia Berlin
“I’m having a hard time writing about Sunday. Getting the long hollow feeling of Sundays. No mail and faraway lawn mowers, the hopelessness.”
Lucia Berlin, A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected Stories

Jens Peter Jacobsen
“Il suo amore non mi offende, signor Bigum, ma io la condanno. Lei ha fatto quello che fanno tanti altri. Si chiudono gli occhi davanti alla vita reale, non si vuole udire il no che grida contro ai nostri desideri, si vuol ignorare I'abisso che si spalanca fra la propria brama e l'oggetto bramato. Si vuol sognare fino in fondo il proprio sogno. Ma la vita non tiene conto dei sogni, non v'è un solo ostacolo che si possa allontanare dalla realtà con un sogno, e infine ci si trova gementi all'orlo dell'abisso, che non s'è mutato, ma è com'è sempre stato. Ma noi, sì, siamo mutati, perché coi sogni si sono accesi i pensieri ed eccitati i desideri fino alla massima tensione. L'abisso però non s'è ristretto, e tutto il nostro essere tende dolorosamente a valicarlo. Invece no, sempre no, null'altro che no; oh, si fosse badato a sé a tempo, ma ora è troppo tardi, ormai si è infelici!”
Jens Peter Jacobsen

Iris Murdoch
“Tal como nos conocemos, somos objetos falsos, imposturas, ramilletes de ilusiones”

“Los juicios sobre las personas no son jamás decisivos, surgen de resúmenes que inmediatamente hacen pensar en la necesidad de una reconsideración. Los arreglos humanos no son otra cosa que cabos sueltos y cálculos nebulosos, independientemente de cualquier cosa que para consolarnos pueda fingir el arte”
Iris Murdoch, The Sea, the Sea
