" Ms. Adler condensed her theme in “Speedboat” this way: “I think when you are truly stuck, when you have stood still in the same spot for too long, you throw a grenade in exactly the spot you were standing in, and jump, and pray. It is the momentum of last resort.” "

" Sono un uomo: non ritengo che mi sia estraneo nulla che sia umano. "

Terenzioc

I love terenzio for saying this. His brilliance is almost like an innocent kid. He has so much faith in humans because someone needs to. Acceptance of even the worst things that seem to have no purpose, he believes he can understand. Even the weird rollercoasters and terrible hurts and lapses in judgement. Positivity that rains down on Hell’s fury.

“But I’m not dead!” Tereza cried. “I can still feel!” “So can we,” the corpses laughed. They laughed the same laugh as the live women who used to tell her cheerfully it was perfectly normal that one day she would have bad teeth, faulty ovaries, and wrinkles, because they all had bad teeth, faulty ovaries, and wrinkles. Laughing the same laugh, they told her that she was dead and it was perfectly all right!” - Kundera

" We are so overwhelmed with quantities of books, that we hardly realize any more that a book can be valuable, valuable like a jewel, or a lovely picture, into which you can look deeper and deeper and get a more profound experience very time. It is far, far better to read one book six times, at intervals, than to read six several books. "
