Favorite West Egg Quotes

1. "Well," the Marsh King pursed his beak politely, "at any rate, your manliness need only last for a relatively brief period. I have already discussed this in detail with some of the lower Stars—white dwarfs and the like. I shall bundle you up tight as a mitten in a human skin until," and here he cleared his long blue throat dramatically, "the Virgin is devoured, the sea turns to gold, and the saints migrate west on the wings of henless eggs." "In the Stars' name, what does that mean?" I gasped."I haven't the faintest idea! Isn't it marvelous? Oracles always have the best poetry! I only repeated what I was told—it is rather rude of you to expect magic, prophecy, and interpretation. That's asking quite a lot, even from a King."

2. "The monks' response was to climb into their curraghs and row off toward Greenland. They were drawn across the storm-racked ocean, drawn west past the edge of the known world, by nothing more than a hunger of the spirit, a yearning of such queer intensity that it beggars the modern imagination."

3. "Holy shit." This is the kind of sunset you hardly see any more, a 19th-century wilderness sunset, a few of which got set down, approximated, on canvas, landscapes of the American West by artists nobody ever heard of, when the land was still free and the eye innocent, and the presence of the Creator much more direct. Here it thunders now over the Mediterranean, high and lonely, this anachronism in primal red, in yellow purer that can be found anywhere today, a purity begging to be polluted…of course Empire took its way westward, what other way was there but into those virgin sunsets to penetrate and to foul?"
Author: Thomas Pynchon

Juz wiosna z cieplym powraca powiewem,Juz marcowego nieba i mórz gniewyWesoly Zefir koi pieszczotami.Wnet ziemie Frygii zostana za nami,Katullu, pola Nicei uprawne -Polecmy do miast azjatyckich slawnych!Juz do wlóczegi mysl zrywa sie lotem,Nogi sie preza z radosnej ochoty.A wiec zegnajcie, towarzysze mili!W podróz daleka wspólniesmy ruszyli,Róznymi szlaki wrócimy z powrotem."
Author: Catullus
