1. "One day in 1948 or 1949, the Brentwood County Mart, a shopping complex in an upscale neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, was the scene of a slight disturbance that carried overtones of the most spectacular upheaval in twientieth-century music. Marta Feuchtwanger, wife of émigré novelist Lion Feuchtwanger, was examining grapefruit in the produce section when she heard a voice shouting German from the far end of the aisle. She looked up to see Arnold Schoenberg, the pioneer of atonal music and the codifier of twelve-tone composition, bearing down on her, with his bald pate and burning eyes. Decades later, in conversation with the writer Lawrence Weschler, Feuchtwanger could recall every detail of the encounter, including the weight of the grapefruit in her hand. "Lies, Frau Marta, lies!" Schoenberg was yelling. "You have to know, I never had syphilis!"

The silence is so fathomless that prayers like plummets vanish into the sea. You beg. You whimper. You load God down with empty praise. You tell him sins that he already knows full well.

And sometimes, by God's grace, a prayer is heard."

18. "Bien sûr ces changements de comportement culturel et l'invention de mumltiples diversions font partie d'un système économique qui me dépase. J'envisage ce système comme un bain dans une piscine anémiée, stérile, bondée, puant le chlore, en comparaison d'une délicieuse baignade dans un lac au fond des bois, la berge du lac bordée de nénuphars en fleurs où sont perchées de petites tortues, un ou deux hérons dans les grands pins ou dans l'eau peu profonde, quelques serpents d'eau parmi les massifs d'ajoncs, et quand vous plongez vous voyez les poissons qui se reposent immobiles sous les bûches dressées.
