"'Truth is strange," you know, "stranger than fiction' - besides being more to the point" - Edgar Allan Poe

One of the last

Finally I find a book that makes me feel good.

We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come.

Einmal ist keinmal, says Tomas to himself. What happens but once, says the German adage, might as well not have happened at all. If we have only one life to live,we might as well not have lived at all.

If a love is to be unforgettable, fortuities must immediately start fluttering down to it like birds to Francis of Assisi's shoulders.

(Kundera, Milan - The Unbearable Lightness Of Being)


And this one's for Ammani -

He tossed the paper aside. 'Taxation, gentlemen, is very much like dairy farming. The task is to extract the maximum amount of milk with the minimum of moo. And I am afraid to say that these days all I get is moo.'

(Terry Pratchett - Jingo)


And yeah, this blog shuts down this weekend. That’s right, the end.
