Book cover for Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita, and the Battle of Manila
Japanese soldiers in the Philippines have written a page of history as terrible as any the foulest mind could conceive,” wrote the Hartford Courant. “It is a record so base that the whole human race should feel ashamed.”

Jean-Paul Sartre
“Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

Ian McDonald
“He's never fought with religion; what is the point of railing against such beauty, such intimate theatre, such chime of eternity? He can treasure it without believing in it.”
Ian McDonald, The Dervish House

Jun'ichirō Tanizaki
“There are those who say that when civilization progresses a bit further transportation facilities will move into the skies and under the ground, and that our streets will again be quiet, but I know perfectly well that when that day comes some new device for torturing the old will be invented.”
Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, In Praise of Shadows

Jun'ichirō Tanizaki
“There are those who hold that to quibble over matters of taste in the basic necessities of life is an extravagance”
Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, In Praise of Shadows

Ian McDonald
“Legends should stay legends otherwise they just become history, when the natural course of things is the other way around, from history to legend.”
Ian McDonald, The Dervish House
