Literary Scenery IV

Follow-up to The elusive lotus from Lahari's

From David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas:

  • “The better the organized the state, the duller its humanity.”
  • ”... for though the humanity’s topsoil is fertile with talent, only one seed in ten thousand will ever flower – for want of discipline.”
  • “I said something about reading not being true knowledge, that true knowledge without xperience is food without sustenance.”

  1. Literary Scenery V

    From Gabriel Garcia Marquez' 100 years of solitude: "'The world must be all fucked up,' he said then, 'when men travel first class and literature goes as freight.' That was the last thing he was heard to say."
