J.G. Ballard
“I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.”
J.G. Ballard

Howard Waldrop
“I can't die yet - I haven't seen The Jolson Story!”
Howard Waldrop

Franz Kafka
“All language is but a poor translation.”
Franz Kafka

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“We're always thinking of eternity as an idea that cannot be understood, something immense. But why must it be? What if, instead of all this, you suddenly find just a little room there, something like a village bath-house, grimy, and spiders in every corner, and that's all eternity is. Sometimes, you know, I can't help feeling that that's what it is.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment

Steve Aylett
“The optimist sees the future as a rabbit sees the oncoming truck - getting bigger, not closer.”
