Henry Miller – “Nexus”

Jinduiam sa venerez si sa ador. Si aveam nevoie de tovarasi care sa simta ceea ce simteam si eu. Dar nu exista nimic de venerat sau adorat, nu existau tovarasi sau spirite asemenatoare. Nu exista decat o pustietate de fier sau de otel, de stocuri de actiuni si titluri de renta, de recolte si de produse, de fabrici, uzine si depozite de cherestea, o pustietate de plictiseala, de utilitati inutile, de iubire fara iubire.

John Lanchester – “Capital”

Middle-class mediocricity.

Suburban mediocricity.

A culture that openly worships the average.

A society that allows the idea of the elite to exist only in relation to sport.

A culture of fat people who aren’t interested in anything except celebrity, people who wat in the street, people who betray their ordinariness every time they open their mouths.
