It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights.

It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.(writing about US President Warren G. Harding)"

Látjuk, hogy bizonytalanok valamiben, és ez fáj. Látjuk bennük a jó szándékot, hogy segíteni akarnak, és ki akarják venni a részüket valamibol, de nem tehetik, és ez is fáj. Fáj a derujük, az egyszeru kis tréfáik és az átlátszó hazugságaik, a csalódásaik és az illúzióik, a reményeik és az apró baklövéseik, az ártatlanságuk, az értetlenségük, a tiszta, logikus kérdéseik, sot még az esetleges rossz gondolataik is. Fáj, ha belegondolunk, mennyit kell még tanulniuk, hogy milyen hosszú út áll még elottük, amit senki nem taposhat ki helyettük, még ha évszázadok óta ezt tesszük is, mert értelmetlennek véljük, hogy mindenkinek a nulláról kelljen kezdenie.

Author: Javier Marías

You have to walk a mile to find a telephone booth, but when you find it, it is built as if the senseless dynamiting of pay phones had been a serious problem at some time in the past. And a British mailbox can presumably stop a German tank."
Author: Neal Stephenson

26. "He wondered if he would live to see the blossom on his apple trees and felt an answering pop inside himself. Ah, so it would not be long now. It began to snow lightly, the last flakes to fall before the spring. He put on his wedding finery, the clothes he had worn so long ago when he married his beloved Pamposh, and which he had kept all this time wrapped in tissue paper in a trunk. As a bridegroom he went outdoors and the snowflakes caressed his grizzled cheeks. His mind was alert, he was ambulatory and nobody was waiting for him with a club. He had his body and his mind and it seemed he was to be spared a brutal end. That at least was kind. He went into his apple orchard, seated himself cross-legged beneath a tree, closed his eyes, heard the verses of the Rig-Veda fill the world with beauty and ceased upon the midnight with no pain."
Author: Salman Rushdie

Sounds posh to me." The snow began to settle gently on the River Ankh. "Still…Happy New Year, Arnold." "Happy New Year, Duck Man. And your duck." "What duck?""Happy New Year, Henry." "Happy New Year, Ron." "Buggrem!" "And god bless us, every one," said Arnold Sideways. The curtain of snow hid them from view. "Which god?" "Dunno. What've you got?"

At the start they might be miles away from one another – I might be in Pamir picking alpine roses and clicking my camera, while this other man, my death, might be eight thousand miles away, fishing for ruff in a little stream after school. I might be getting ready to go to a concert and he might be at the railway station buying a ticket to go and visit his mother-in-law – and yet eventually we are bound to meet, we can't avoid it..."
Author: Vasily Grossman
32. "Corny trash, vulgar clichés, Philistinism in all its phases, imitations of imitations, bogus profundities, crude, moronic and dishonest pseudo-literature—these are obvious examples. Now, if we want to pin down poshlost in contemporary writing we must look for it in Freudian symbolism, moth-eaten mythologies, social comment, humanistic messages, political allegories, overconcern with class or race, and the journalistic generalities we all know."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
