Thomas Bernhard
“Everyone, he went on, speaks a language he does not understand, but which now and then is understood by others. That is enough to permit one to exist and at least to be misunderstood.”
Thomas Bernhard, Gargoyles

Thomas Bernhard
“It would be wrong to refuse to face the fact that everything is fundamentally sick and sad.”
Thomas Bernhard, Gargoyles

Thomas Bernhard
“We must allow ourselves to think, we must dare to think, even though we fail. It is in the nature of things that we always fail, because we suddenly find it impossible to order our thoughts, because the process of thinking requires us to consider every thought there is, every possible thought. Fundamentally we have always failed, like all the others, whoever they were, even the greatest minds. At some point, they suddenly failed and their system collapsed, as is proved by their writings, which we admire because they venture farthest into failure. To think is to fail, I thought.”
Thomas Bernhard, Extinction

Yukio Mishima
“We live in an age in which there is no heroic death.”
Yukio Mishima

Alasdair Gray
“Metaforen är ett av tankens väsentligaste verktyg. Den belyser vad som annars skulle ligga helt i mörker. Men denna belysning blir ibland så klar att den bländar istället för avslöjar.”
Alasdair Gray, Lanark
