Literary Scenery V

Follow-up to Literary Scenery IV from Lahari's

From Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ 100 years of solitude:

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.”

The elusive lotus

Follow-up to Literary Scenery III from Lahari's

From Daniel Mason's The Piano Tuner:

"My men went on and presently met the Lotus-Eaters, nor did these Lotus-Eaters have any thoughts of destroying  our companions, but they only gave them lotus to taste of.  But any of them who ate the honey-sweet fruit of lotus was unwilling to take any message back, or to go away, but they wanted to stay there with the lotus-eating people, feeding on lotus, and forget the way home."

Writing about web page /laharidealwis/entry/literary_scenery/

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

From Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist:

Camels are traitorous: they walk thousands of paces and never seem to tire. Then suddenly, they kneel and die. But horses tire bit by bit. You always know how much you can ask of them, and when it is that they are about to die.
