Jeg har i det siste lest meg opp på skrivekunsten og skrivehåndverket, og The Elements of Style er en bok man ofte blir henvist til om man trenger denslags lesestoff.

Denne lille boken har ord på seg både for å være veiledende og misvisende, så det

Det virker kanskje dumdristig å gå Stephen King på klingen og spille kritikus av hans «On writing», hvor han deler sine erfaringer og råd om skrivekunstens håndverk, erfaringer han har samlet opp i løpet av flere tiår med hardt arbeid, med tanke på ...more

Hesse på sparebluss. Det er snakk om en sytti siders reiseskildring som tar for seg besøk innom flere byer, noe som gjør fremstillingen noe overfladisk. Det er hei og hadet, liksom. Jeg hadde ventet å finne noen fine beskrivelser av steder og ...more

Andrei Tarkovsky
“Man is made up of opposing characteristics. History demonstrates vividly the fact that it always moves in the worst possible direction. Either man is not capable of directing history, or else he does direct it, but only by pushing it down the most terrible, wrong path there is.
There is not a single example to prove the opposite. People are not capable of governing others. They are only capable of destroying. And materialism—naked and cynical—is going to complete the destruction.
Despite the fact that God lives in every soul, that every soul has the capacity to accumulate what is eternal and good, as a mass people can do nothing but destroy. For they have come together not in the name of an ideal, but simply for the sake of a material notion.
Mankind has hurried to protect the body (perhaps on the strength of that natural and unconscious gesture which served as the beginning of what is called progress) and has given no thought to protecting the soul.
The church (as opposed to religion) has not been able to do so. In the course of the history of civilization, the spiritual half of man has been separated further and further from the animal, the material, and now in an infinite expanse of darkness we can just make out, like the lights of a departing train, the other half of our being as it rushes away, irrevocably and for ever.
Spirit and flesh, feeling and reason can never again be made one. It's too late. For the moment we are crippled by the appalling disease of spiritual deficiency; and the disease is fatal. Mankind has done everything possible to annihilate itself, starting with its own moral annihilation—physical death is merely the result.
Everyone can be saved only if each saves himself.”
Andrei Tarkovsky, Journal 1970-1986

“The contemporary sedentary is someone who feels at home everywhere, thanks to cellphones, and the nomad is someone who does not feel at home anywhere, someone who is excluded, ostracized.”
Paul Virilio, The Administration of Fear

“Ak, kjærligheten den gjør menneskehjærtet til en sophave, en frodig og uforskammet have hvori står hemmelighetsfuld og fræk sop.”
