Douglas Coupland
“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it's already happened.”
Douglas Coupland, Life After God

Douglas Coupland
“When you're young, you always feel that life hasn't yet begun—that "life" is always scheduled to begin next week, next month, next year, after the holidays—whenever. But then suddenly you're old and the scheduled life didn't arrive. You find yourself asking, 'Well then, exactly what was it I was having—that interlude—the scrambly madness—all that time I had before?”
Douglas Coupland, Life After God

J.G. Ballard
“The media landscape of the present day is a map in search of a territory. A huge volume of sensational and often toxic imagery inundates our minds, much of it fictional in content. How do we make sense of this ceaseless flow of advertising and publicity, news and entertainment, where presidential campaigns and moon voyages are presented in terms indistinguishable from the launch of a new candy bar or deodorant? What actually happens on the level of our unconscious minds when, within minutes on the same TV screen, a prime minister is assassinated, an actress makes love, an injured child is carried from a car crash? Faced with these charged events, prepackaged emotions already in place, we can only stitch together a set of emergency scenarios, just as our sleeping minds extemporize a narrative from the unrelated memories that veer through the cortical night. In the waking dream that now constitutes everyday reality, images of a blood-spattered widow, the chromium trim of a limousine windshield, the stylised glamour of a motorcade, fuse together to provide a secondary narrative with very different meanings.”
J.G. Ballard, The Atrocity Exhibition

Mikhail Bulgakov
“Margarita was never short of money. She could buy whatever she liked. Her husband had plenty of interesting friends. Margarita never had to cook. Margarita knew nothing of the horrors of living in a shared flat. In short... was she happy? Not for a moment.”
Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita

Ivo Siromahov
“В какъв грозен свят сме пратили това дете.
Цял живот ли ще отговаря на глупави въпроси?
Що за простотия е това: Колко обичаш някого?
Колко! Колко! Колко! Колко!
Мозъците ни до такава степен са промити от метри, секунди, килограми, литри, щото почваме да си мислим, че и любовта можем да измерим.
Затова и децата ни вдигат ръце от нас. Защото постоянно ги изправяме до стената и ги разстрелваме с тъпите си въпроси : Горе ръцете! Как се казваш? Кого обичаш? Колко?
из "Зимна ябълка”
Иво Сиромахов, Очила
