Pub Brawls, Rackety Roadworks, Mugged Tourists, The Badlands On A Saturday Night - They All Made Sense, They Were All Part Of The Huge, Dirty, Torn Social Fabric. There Was A War Raging Out There In The City And She Was Part Of The Fight, But The Countryside Unsettled Her Because She Didn't Know Who The Enemy Was.

"The awakening is the purpose. The awakening of the fact that in essence we are light, we are love. Each cell of our body, each cell and molecule of everything.

Quotes About Zensur

"Systematisches Lesen ist kaum von Nutzen. Offizielle Bücherlisten (der Klassiker, der Literaturgeschichte, der zensurierten oder empfohlenen Bücher, der Bibliothekskataloge) können per Zufall den einen oder anderen nützlichen Hinweis geben.

Quotes About Comfort Room

"A first-rate college library with a comfortable campus around it is a fine milieu for a writer. There is, of course, the problem of educating the young. I remember how once, between terms, not at Cornell, a student brought a transistor set with him into the reading room. He managed to state that one, he was playing "classical" music; that two, he was doing it "softly"; and that three, "there were not many readers around in summer." I was there, a one-man multitude." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov
