Samuel R. Delany
“The concept of a writer writing a vivid and accurate scene in a language transparent and devoid of decoration so that we see through to the object without writerly distraction suffers the same contradiction as the concept of a painter painting a vivid and accurate scene with pigments transparent and devoid of color, including white and black—so that the paint will not get between us and the picture.”
Samuel R. Delany, The Jewel-Hinged Jaw: Notes on the Language of Science Fiction

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
“Wenn ein Buch und ein Kopf zusammenstoßen und es klingt hohl, ist das allemal im Buch?”
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Martin Gardner
“Wouldn’t the sentence ‘I want to put a hyphen between the words Fish and And and And and Chips in my Fish-And-Chips sign’ have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Fish, and between Fish and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and Chips, as well as after Chips?”
Martin Gardner, Aha! Insight

Lemony Snicket
“It is likely I will die next to a pile of things I was meaning to read.”
Lemony Snicket

Peter Handke
“Zeichen eines großen Schriftstellers (Doderer): man nimmt von ihm auch praktische Ratschläge für den Alltag an”
Peter Handke, The Weight of the World
