Quotes About Rabbit Loss

"Those rabbits stopped fighting the system, because it was easier to take the loss of freedom, to forget what it was like before the fence kept them in, than to be out there in the world struggling to find shelter and food. They had decided that the loss of some was worth the temporary comfort of many." - Author: Alexandra Bracken

Quotes About Nominations

"And shall we at last become the victims of our own abominable lust of gain? Forbid it, Heaven." Washington himself could be a hard driving businessman, yet he found the rapacity of many vendors unconscionable. As he told George Mason, he thought it the intent of the speculators, various tribes of money makers and stock jobbers of all denominations, to continue the war for their own private emolument, without considering that their avarice and thirst for gain must plunge everything in one common ruin." - Author: Ron Chernow

Quotes About Borges Argentina

"I am told that César Aira writes two books a year, at least, some of which are published by a little Argentinean company named Beatriz Viterbo, after the character in Borgess story "The Aleph." The books of his that I have been able to find were published by Mondadori and and Tusquets Argentina. Its frustrating, because once youve started reading Aira, you dont want to stop. His novels seem to put the theories of Gombrowicz into practice, except, and the difference is fundamental, that Gombrowicz was the abbot of a luxurious imaginary monastery, while Aira is a nun or novice among the Discalced Carmelites of the Word. Sometimes he is reminiscent of Roussel (Roussel on his knees in a bath red with blood), but the only living writer to whom he can be compared is Barcelonas Enrique Vila-Matas. Aira is an eccentric, but he is also one of the three or four best writers working in Spanish today." - Author: Roberto Bolaño
