أحمد زكريا الشلق
“التحديث يعنى كسر القوالب الجامده والتقاليد التى تعوق المجتمع
الى الامام وما يقتضيه ذلك من نبذ الفكر الخرافى والاعتماد على العقل وتبنى مناهج البحث العلمى”
أحمد زكريا الشلق, الحداثة والامبريالية: الغزو الفرنسي وإشكالية نهضة مصر

Günter Grass
“I've also been told it makes a good impression to begin modestly by asserting that novels no longer have heroes because individuals have ceased to exist, that individualism is a thing of the past, that all human beings are lonely, all equally lonely, with no claim to individual loneliness, that they all form some nameless mass devoid of heroes.”
Günter Grass, The Tin Drum

Paul Auster
“Each time he took a walk, he felt as though he were leaving himself behind, and by giving himself up to the movement of the streets, by reducing himself to a seeing eye, he was able to escape the obligation to think, and this, more than anything else, brought him a measure of peace, a salutary emptiness within.”
Paul Auster, The New York Trilogy

J.M. Coetzee
“To the last we will have learned nothing. In all of us, deep down, there seems to be something granite and unteachable. No one truly believes, despite the hysteria in the streets, that the world of tranquil certainties we were born into is about to be extinguished. No one can accept that an imperial has been annihilated by men with bows and arrows and rusty old guns who live in tents and never wash and cannot read or write. And who am I to jeer at life-giving illusions? Is there any better way to pass these last days than in dreaming of a saviour with a sword who will scatter the enemy hosts and forgive us the errors that have been committed by others in our name and grant us a second chance to build our earthly paradise?”
J.M. Coetzee, Waiting for the Barbarians

J.M. Coetzee
“For I was not, as I liked to think, the indulgent pleasure-loving opposite of the cold rigid Colonel. I was the lie that Empire tells itself when times are easy, he the truth that Empire tells when harsh winds blow.”
J.M. Coetzee, Waiting for the Barbarians
