Favorite Irrigate Quotes

1. "I destroy because for me everything that proceeds from reason is untrustworthy. I believe only in the evidence of what stirs my marrow, not in the evidence of what addresses itself to my reason. I have found levels in the realm of the nerve. I now feel capable of evaluating the evidence. There is for me an evidence in the realm of pure flesh which has nothing to do with the evidence of reason. The eternal conflict between reason and the heart is decided in my very flesh, but in my flesh irrigated by nerves..."
Author: Antonin Artaud

Author: Bernardo Atxaga

And I am not surprised at the annoyance of the historians when by accident it finds itself among them."
Author: E.M. Forster

Thanks." Didn't even give me a dibble. By the time I got to Ur I wasn't surging with any of that terrible joy, oh no. My back was KILLING me."
Author: Jonathan Stroud

Author: Kim Stanley Robinson
