Cormac McCarthy
“Peering down into the water where the morning sun fashioned wheels of light, coronets fanwise in which lay trapped each twig, each grain of sediment, long flakes and blades of light in the dusty water sliding away like optic strobes where motes sifted and spun.”
Cormac McCarthy, Suttree

Thomas Pynchon
“Who claims Truth, Truth abandons. History is hir'd, or coerc'd, only in Interests that must ever prove base. She is too innocent, to be left within the reach of anyone in Power,- who need but touch her, and all her Credit is in the instant vanish'd, as if it had never been. She needs rather to be tended lovingly and honorably by fabulists and counterfeiters, Ballad-Mongers and Cranks of ev'ry Radius, Masters of Disguise to provide her the Costume, Toilette, and Bearing, and Speech nimble enough to keep her beyond the Desires, or even the Curiosity, of Government.”
Thomas Pynchon, Mason & Dixon

Gilles Deleuze
“Philosophy, art, and science are not the mental objects of an objectified brain but the three aspects under which the brain becomes subject.”
Gilles Deleuze

Italo Calvino
“A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.”
Italo Calvino, The Uses of Literature

Zaman Ali
“Books have the power to create, destroy or change civilizations.”
Zaman Ali, HUMANITY Understanding Reality and Inquiring Good
