Quotes

    Migalahas quoted8 months ago
    Camus wrote like a man who had just finished a large dinner of steak and french fries, salad, and had topped it with a bottle of good French wine. Humanity may have been suffering but not him. A wise man, perhaps, but Henry preferred somebody who screamed when they burned
    Arturo Castañedahas quotedlast year
    What is your advice to young writers?”
    “Drink, fuck and smoke plenty of cigarettes.”
    “What is your advice to older writers?”
    Hayrettin Turanhas quoted3 years ago
    He dropped the book to the floor and tried to sleep. Sleep was always difficult. If he could sleep three hours in 24 he was satisfied. Well, he thought, the walls are still here, give a man four walls and he had a chance. Out on the streets, nothing could be done.
    The doorbell rang. “Hank!” somebody screamed. “Hey, Hank!”
    What the shit? he thought. Now what?
    “Yeah?” he asked, lying there in his shorts.
    “Hey! What are you doing?”
    “Wait a minute…”
    He got up, picked up his shirt and pants and walked into the front room.
    “What are you doing?”
    “Getting dressed…”
    “Getting dressed?”
    “Yeah.”
