Roberto Bolaño
“I'll tell you, my friends: it's all in the nerves. The nerves that tense and relax as you approach the edges of companionship and love. The razor-sharp edges of companionship and love.”
Roberto Bolaño, Amulet

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“...I believe that you are sincere and good at heart. If you do not attain happiness, always remember that you are on the right road, and try not to leave it. Above all, avoid falsehood, every kind of falsehood, especially falseness to yourself. Watch over your own deceitfulness and look into it every hour, every minute. Avoid being scornful, both to others and to yourself. What seems to you bad within you will grow purer from the very fact of your observing it in yourself. Avoid fear, too, though fear is only the consequence of every sort of falsehood. Never be frightened at your own faint-heartedness in attaining love.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Roberto Bolaño
“For a moment the two of them looked at each other, wordless, as if they were asleep and their dreams had converged on common ground, a place where sound was alien.”
Roberto Bolaño, 2666

Clarice Lispector
“Things were somehow so good that they were in danger of becoming very bad because what is fully mature is very close to rotting”
Clarice Lispector, A Hora Da Estrela

Anton Chekhov
“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov
