But if one says: I cannot come because that is my hour to be alone,one is considered rude, egotistical or strange. What a commentary on our civilization, when beingalone is considered suspect; when one has to apologize for it, make excuses, hide the fact that onepractices it—like a secret vice!"

He lasted about one act, then turned to me in horror: 'This is how you spend your days? Thinking about things like this?' I was ashamed. I could have been learning about string theory or how flowers pollinate themselves. I think his remark was the beginning of my crisis of faith. Like so many of my generation in graduate school, I had turned to literature as a kind of substitute for formal religion, which no longer fed my soul, or for therapy, which I could not afford.... I became interested in exploring the theory of nonfiction and in writing memoir, a genre that gives us access to that lost Middlemarch of reflection and social commentary."
Author: Mary Rose O'Reilley

10. "To me, the best zombie movies aren't the splatter fests of gore and violence with goofy characters and tongue in cheek antics. Good zombie movies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society… and our society's station in the world. They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too… but there's always an undercurrent of social commentary and thoughtfulness."
Author: Robert Kirkman

Today's Quote

Os israelenses discutem, eu discuto. E ainda assim sou eu quem me levanto toda manhã, faço uma pequena caminhada no deserto, faço uma xícara de café, sento em minha escrivaninha e começo a perguntar-me: ‘Como me sentiria se fosse ela? Como seria estar na pele dele?' – o que é o que se tem a fazer se se quer escrever até o mais simples dos diálogos: é preciso dividir não apenas sua lealdade, mas até seus sentimentos viscerais entre os diversos personagens. Creio que estou parafraseando D. H. Lawrence, que disse certa vez que, para escrever um romance, você tem que ser capas de referendar meia dúzia de sentimentos e opiniões diferentes, conflituosos e contraditórios, com o mesmo grau de convicção, veemência e empatia. Então, talvez eu seja um pouco mais bem equipado do que outras pessoas para entender, do meu ponto de vista judaico-israelense, como é o sentimento de ser um palestino deslocado, um árabe palestino cuja terra natal foi tomada por ‘alienígenas de outro planeta'. p. 94"
Author: Amos Oz
