Among Family by Marie NDiaye
"It's taken me forever to read this novel... well, I quit at one point and read other things. It's slow-going: an early novel by NDiaye but ultimately, no less extraordinary. The theme of otherness within a family, race (though never explicit), the..." Read more of this review »
Randolph Carter
Randolph Carter added a status update: I watched the total eclipse from my driveway. It was actually pretty awe inspiring. It got gradually darker, of course, then in about 5 seconds it just went from dark sunglasses dark to pitch night. The stars suddenly appear and the brightest thing is the solar corona which is about as bright as a full moon. When the sun rim first appears again the stars disappear in about 20 seconds.

Woody Guthrie
“I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing. Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim or too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard travelling. I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood. I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work. And the songs that I sing are made up for the most part by all sorts of folks just about like you. I could hire out to the other side, the big money side, and get several dollars every week just to quit singing my own kind of songs and to sing the kind that knock you down still farther and the ones that poke fun at you even more and the ones that make you think that you've not got any sense at all. But I decided a long time ago that I'd starve to death before I'd sing any such songs as that. The radio waves and your movies and your jukeboxes and your songbooks are already loaded down and running over with such no good songs as that anyhow.”
Woody Guthrie

Lilian Jackson Braun
“Do you mind living alone?” she asked. “I’ve tried it both ways,” he replied, “and I know it can be a letdown to come home to an empty apartment, but now I have the Siamese to greet me at the door. They’re good companions; they need me; they’re always happy to see me come home. On the other hand, they’re always glad to see me go out—one of the things that cats do to keep a person from feeling too important.”
Lilian Jackson Braun, The Cat Who Moved a Mountain

“It’s arguable that Ayn Rand’s finest achievement was crashing the economy twenty-five years after her death.”
Jarett Kobek, I Hate the Internet

Fernando Pessoa
“Literature is the most agreeable way of ignoring life.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

Virginia Woolf
“Orlando naturally loved solitary places, vast views, and to feel himself for ever and ever and ever alone.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando
