Author Quotes

Death envies those asleep in her... extinguished softly in her womb.

Death is a child of stone.

Pain sends out long tentacles and sucks. When I have given up struggling he takes me into his arms.

The day is so long and white, a road all dust, smooth monotony; and the night at the end, a hill to be climbed, slowly, laboriously, while the stars prick our hands like thistles.

The moon... is a mad woman holding up her dress so that her white belly shines. Haughty, impregnable, ridiculous, silent and white as a debauched queen.

To have one's individuality completely ignored is like being pushed quite out of life--like being blown out as one blows out a light.

A belief which does not spring from a conviction in the emotions is no belief at all

To have one’s individuality completely ignored is being pushed quite out of life. Like being blown out as one blows out a candle.
