"Switched from physical book to kindle bc book is too cumbersome but will go back after a certain portion of it read to reduce screen time. I dont read nonfiction like this a lot and keep rereading sentences to absorb it. but eh reading this now, things are making sense." Sep 19, 2019 07:05AM

Gabby Bess
“If originality is a “sense of novelty and freshness” then, in the act of constructing ourselves, originality is not the goal. We construct a self-portrait, relying on existing objects – books, quotes from authors and artists, images, art – that we are more than happy to show off to others for them to use as masturbation material or for the material by which they align themselves. This is the new action painting – the curational archive. The referential self portrait. The portrait of any other artist could be readily used to explain yourself, just reblog it and caption it with “same.” The past consistently becomes the present, not through linear time, but through the constant reconstruction and relabeling of it.”
Gabby Bess

Mo Yan
“Finally, she mused that human existence is as brief as the life of autumn grass, so what was there to fear from taking chances with your life?”
Mo Yan, Red Sorghum

Osamu Dazai
“People talk of “social outcasts.” The words apparently denote the miserable losers of the world, the vicious ones, but I feel as though I have been a “social outcast” from the moment I was born. If ever I meet someone society has designated as an outcast, I invariably feel affection for him, an emotion which carries me away in melting tenderness.”
Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human

Gunnar Ardelius
“How do you know when it's over?"
"Maybe when you feel more in love with your memories than with the person standing in front of you.”
Gunnar Ardelius, I Need You More Than I Love You and I Love You to Bits

Assata Shakur
“Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.”
Assata Shakur, Assata: An Autobiography
