“The physical domain of the country had its counterpart in me. The trails I made led outward into the hills and swamps, but they led inward also. And from the study of things underfoot, and from reading and thinking, came a kind of exploration, myself and the land. In time the two became one in my mind. With the gathering force of an essential thing realizing itself out of early ground, I faced in myself a passionate and tenacious longing—to put away all thought forever, and all the trouble it brings, all but the nearest desire, direct and searching. To take the trail and not look back. Whether on foot, on snowshoes or by sled, into the summer hills and their late freezing shadows—a high blaze, a runner track in the snow would show where I had gone. Let the rest of mankind find me if it could.”
John Haines

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
John Milton, Paradise Lost

Pola Oloixarac
“All war is based in deception (cfr. Sun Tzu, “The Art of War”).

Definition of deception: “The practice of deliberately making somebody believe things that are not true. An act, a trick or device entended to deceive somebody”.

Thus, all war is based in metaphor.

All war necessarily perfects itself in poetry.

Poetry (since indefinable) is the sense of seduction.

Therefore, all war is the storytelling of seduction, and seduction is the nature of war.”
Pola Oloixarac, Las teorías salvajes

Leonardo Padura
“Τα υπόλοιπα δεν είχαν σημασία, γιατί ήξερε πως όσο πιο μακριά πηγαίνει κανείς όταν γράφει τόσο πιο μόνος μένει. Και στο τέλος μαθαίνει ότι είναι καλύτερα έτσι και ότι οφείλει να υπερασπίσει αυτή τη μοναξιά: το να μιλάει κανείς για λογοτεχνία είναι χάσιμο χρόνου και αν είναι μόνος είναι πολύ καλύτερα, γιατί έτσι πρέπει να δουλεύει και γιατί ο χρόνος για να δουλέψει είνα κάθε στιγμή και λιγότερος και αν κανείς τον χαραμίζει νιώθει πως διαπράττει ένα αμάρτημα για το οποίο δεν υπάρχει συγχώρεση.”
Leonardo Padura, Αντιός, Χέμινγουεϊ
