“The book looked doomed, assailed on all sides by those who'd see it superseded by the synthetic-new and those who didn't give two shiny ones. With the recession forging ahead with renewed vigour, bookselling too was going the way of papyrus, taking with it what was left of Richard's self-esteem, his beer money and his comedic persona.”
Charlie Hill, Books

Caitlin Doughty
“No matter how many heavy-metal album covers you’ve seen, how many Hieronymus Bosch prints of the tortures of Hell, or even the scene in Indiana Jones where the Nazi’s face melts off, you cannot be prepared to view a body being cremated. Seeing a flaming human skull is intense beyond your wildest flights of imagination.”
Caitlin Doughty, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory

“Ari-Name-geändert fixierte mich und sagte, du hast behauptet, du wärst ein Angsthase, und jetzt bist du hier der einzig Furchtlose. Ich rief ihm zu, ich hätte nur Angst, bis was passiere, aber wenn es dann einträte, wäre sie weg.”
Yoram Kaniuk, תש"ח

“I suppose this was the first time I had ever felt an urge not to be. Never an urge to die, far less an urge to put an end to myself - simply an urge not to be. This disgusting, hostile and unlovely world was not made for me, nor I for it.”
Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot

“Der Fehler ist zu glauben, dass Menschen, die viel erzählen, alles erzählen: Das ist genauso wenig wahr wie die Annahme, dass Menschen, die wenig sagen, viel verschweigen.”
Christoph Poschenrieder, Das Sandkorn
