George Orwell
“Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?... Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?... The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking-not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”
George Orwell, 1984

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“So It Goes”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Arthur Schnitzler
“- Acho que devemos estar gratos ao destino por termos saído ilesos dessas aventuras - tanto as reais como as que sonhámos.
- Tens a certeza disso? - interregou ele.
- Sim, como também tenho a certeza que não é a realidade de uma única noite, nem a de toda uma vida que corresponde à verdade intrínseca de um ser humano.
- Nem sonho algum - suspirou ele calmamente - é inteiramente sonho.
Albertine segurou-lhe a cabeça com ambas as mãos e encostou-a ao seio.
- Agora estamos plenamente acordados - observou ela - por muito tempo.”
Arthur Schnitzler, Dream Story

José Saramago
“A cegueira também é isto, viver num mundo onde se tenha acabado a esperança.”
José Saramago

Philip Larkin
“They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.”
Philip Larkin, High Windows
