“It is gone, the heart is gone, the head is gone, no one feels anything, asks anything, seeks anything, says anything, hears anything, there is only silence.”
Samuel Beckett
The Complete Short Prose, 1929-1989 by Samuel Beckett
“Real scratching is superior to masturbation, in my opinion.”
Samuel Beckett
The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches by Bashō Matsuo
"I want to be very clear about one thing: who the heck am I to be giving Basho two stars? I am nobody, and I am not giving Basho two stars, I am giving this book two stars. The Japanese literary tradition is so deep and aesthetically interesting, a..." Read more of this review »
The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills by Charles Bukowski

Boris Gregoric and 2 other people liked James's review of The Collected Poems:
The Collected Poems by A.E. Housman
"Forgive the format but I couldn't resist:

I read this collection
Whilst suffering the heat
Of another year's vacation
And found the writer neat.

While maudlin and morose,
Houseman's depiction of youthful love
As naive, beautiful and verbose

Boris Gregoric and 4 other people liked Mike (the Paladin)'s review of Pensees:
Pensees by Blaise Pascal
"I haven't finished this and I still feel almost ready to give it a 5, Be sure what you believe from the Bible. But read this for insight even should you disagree with it.

“Eventually, all that one has learnt will have to be forgotten.”

Samuel Beckett
“Real scratching is superior to masturbation, in my opinion.”
Samuel Beckett, The Complete Short Prose, 1929-1989

Patrick Kavanagh
“He was in his secret room in the heart now. Having entered he could be bold. A man hasn't to be on his best behavior in Heaven; he can kick the furniture around. He can stoop down and picks up lumps of mortality without being born again to die.”
Patrick Kavanagh, Tarry Flynn

Charles Bukowski
“the worst men have the best jobs the best men have the worst jobs or are unemployed or locked in madhouses.”
Charles Bukowski, The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills

Emil M. Cioran
“Akhmatova, like Gogol, wanted to possess nothing. She gave away the presents given to her, and a few days later they would be found in other people's houses. This characteristic recalls the behavior of nomads, compelled to the provisional by necessity and by choice...When eastern Europe furnishes such models of detachment, why seek them out in India or elsewhere? (from Anathemas and Admirations)”
Emil M. Cioran
