6. "For more than half a century I have tried to confront greatness directly, hardly a fashionable stance, but I see no other justification for literary criticism in the shadows of our Evening Land.

Author: Harold Bloom

His work modifies our conception of the past, as it will modify the future."-- Essay: "Kafka and his Precursors"
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
10. "An intense anticipation itself transforms possibility into reality; our desires being often but precursors of the things which we are capable of performing."
