Coming from a logician and a solipsist, her surprise surprised me."

11. "Intimitatea mea cu celalalt corp al meu este permanenta, când dorm stiu si în vis ca e lânga mine, dar în orele de dragoste fizica ea devine totala. Atunci nu mai disting privirea de atingere, tandretea de violenta, fericirea de suferinta. Numai pe ea o vreau pentru ca numai pe ea o cunosc. Ii privesc, între coapse, «fluturele cu aripi lipite somnoros» si stiu ca e, cu adevarat, cel mai frumos lucru pe care l-as putea vedea si atinge vreodata. Ajungi cu adevarat la maturitate sexuala doar atunci când începi sa traiesti un ciudat solipsism în doi care te face sa spui: «în tot universul nu exista decât doua fiinte care fac cu adevarat dragoste: eu si iubita mea.»"
Author: Mircea Cărtărescu
12. "The first conversation began awkwardly, although Espinoza had been expecting Pelletier's call, as if both men found it difficult to say what sooner or later the would have to say. The first twenty minutes were tragic in tone, with the word fate used ten times and the word friendship twenty-four times. Liz Norton's name was spoken fifty times, nine of them in vain. The word Paris was said seven times, Madrid, eight. The word love was spoken twice, once by each man. The word horror was spoken six times and the word happiness once (by Espinoza). The word solution was said twelve times. The word solipsism seven times. The world euphemism ten times. The word category, in the singular and the plural, nine times. The word structuralism once (Pelletier). The term American literature three times. The words dinner or eating or breakfast or sandwich nineteen times. The words eyes or hands or hair fourteen times. The the conversation proceeded more smoothly."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
