" As he watched her, he felt sure that her lips must taste of blood and salt and that there must be a delicious weakness in her legs. His impulse wasn't to aid her to get free, but to throw her down in the soft, warm mud and to keep her there.
He expressed some of his desire by a grunt. If he only had the courage to throw himself on her. Nothing less violent than rape would do. The sensation he felt was like that he got when holding an egg in his hand. Not that she was fragile or even seemed fragile. It wasn't that. It was her completeness, her egglike self-sufficiency, that made him want to crush her."

Holy the Firm - Annie Dillard
Feb 1st

“I seem to be on a road, walking, greeting the hedgerows, the rose-hips, the apples and thorn. I seem to be on a road, walking, familiar with neighbors, high-handed with cattle, smelling the sea, and alone. Already, I know the names of things. I can kick a stone.”

Couldn't finish it, just terrible.Not because of any racial language or description of bullfighting but because I found it very boring.

The Prince - Niccolo Machiavelli
July 29th


Men ought either to be well treated or crushed.

In the beginning of the malady it is easy to cure but difficult to detect, but in the course of time...it becomes easy to detect but difficult to cure.

Hunger - Knut Hamsun
Aug 2nd

"Conscience, did you say? No rubbish, if you please. You are too poor to support a conscience."

"I had read my eyes out of their sockets, had starved the brains out of my head, and what the devil had I gained by it? Even a street hussy prayed God to deliver her from the sight of me."

"..she began to stand around the gate and expect things. What things? She didn't know exactly. Her breath was gusty and short. She knew things that nobody ever told her. For instance, the words of the trees and the wind. .. She knew the world was a stallion rolling in the blue pasture of ether. She knew that God tore down the old world every evening and built a new one by sun-up. It was wonderful to see it take form with the sun and emerge from the gray dust of its making. ”

Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison
“I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: That I am nobody but myself.”

A Farewell to Arms - Ernest Hemingway
"I’m not brave any more darling. I’m all broken. They’ve broken me.”

“God knows I had not wanted to fall in love with her. I had not wanted to fall in love with any one. But God knows I had and I lay on the bed in the room of the hospital in Milan and all sorts of things went through my head but I felt wonderful...”

“Oh, darling, you will be good to me, won’t you? Because we’re going to have a strange life.”

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”

Yesterday I wrote her a bitter emotional letter,  
express mailed in the vacuum of my past life. 
My boy it was filled up with caustic adous 
stained with inky jealousy and a packaged fetter 
“I will no longer be your slaved puppet of wood 
no light can escape from a tub of refuse.”
So the letter ended. “I have waited a week…”
so my new letter began. 
-Roman
