Herman Melville
“Why did the old Persians hold the sea holy? Why did the Greeks give it a separate deity, and own brother Jove? Surely all this is not without meaning. And still deeper the meaning of that story of Narcissus, who because he could not grasp the tormenting mild image he saw in the fountain, plunged into it and was drowned. But that same image, we ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick or, the Whale

Lawrence Durrell
“I don’t believe one reads to escape reality. A person reads to confirm a reality he knows is there, but which he has not experienced.”
Lawrence Durrell

Mark Twain
“If voting made any difference they wouldn't let us do it.”
Mark Twain

“Announcing your plans is a good way to hear god laugh”

Henry Miller
“The only law which is really lived up to whole-heartedly and with a vengeance is the law of conformity.”
