The Almost Nearly Perfect People by Michael Booth
“Inequality breeds depression, addiction, resignation, and physical symptoms including premature aging, that affect the entire population. In other words, the well-being of individuals, rich or poor, is mutually dependent.”
Michael Booth
Melo ekonomika by Aušra Maldeikienė
"Didžioji dalis knygos buvo įdomi, informatyvi. Tačiau paskutiniai du skyriai nuvylė, nes ateitis siejama pagrinde su švietimo sektoriaus pertvarkomis, kurių pokyčiai ir realūs rezultatai mano supratimu net jeigu ir įvyks, tai bus tik po 15 - 20 me..." Read more of this review »
Tėvas Gorijo by Honoré de Balzac
"Romantic french ingenuity! Where high feelings were above human nature. I absolutely adore long paragraphs of, like it seems, free flow of conciousness."
Septynių vasarų giesmės by Sigitas Geda

21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari
" Baigia išsikvėpti autorius? "

“Don't look back until you've written an entire draft, just begin each day from the last sentence you wrote the preceding day. This prevents those cringing feelings, and means that you have a substantial body of work before you get down to the real work which is all in ... the edit."

[Ten rules for writing fiction (part two), The Guardian, 20 February 2010]”
Will Self

Gilles Deleuze
“It is already hard enough to understand what someone is saying. Discussion is just an exercise in narcissism where everyone takes turns showing off. Very quickly, you no longer have any idea what is being discussed.”
Gilles Deleuze, Two Regimes of Madness: Texts and Interviews 1975-1995

Yuval Noah Harari
“Morality doesn’t mean ‘following divine commands’. It means ‘reducing suffering’. Hence in order to act morally, you don’t need to believe in any myth or story. You just need to develop a deep appreciation of suffering.”
Yuval Noah Harari, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century

Esther Vilar
“If a young man gets married, starts a family, and spends the rest of his
life working at a soul-destroying job, he is held up as an example of virtue
and responsibility. The other type of man, living only for himself, working
only for himself, doing first one thing and then another simply because he
enjoys it and because he has to keep only himself, sleeping where and when
he wants, and facing woman when he meets her, on equal terms and not as
one of a million slaves, is rejected by society. The free, unshackled man has
no place in its midst.”
Esther Vilar, The Manipulated Man

“Inequality breeds depression, addiction, resignation, and physical symptoms including premature aging, that affect the entire population. In other words, the well-being of individuals, rich or poor, is mutually dependent.”
Michael Booth, The Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia
