Slapstick in the Bookshop

The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley

"I write from life. But the reader, you know, imports the symbols, the associations. I can't keep them out. That's how poetry works." - Ian McEwan

 "Your talk," I said, "is surely the handiwork of wisdom because not one word of it do I understand." - Flann O'Brien

 "Learning to read is probably the most difficult and revolutionary thing that happens to the human brain and if you don't believe that, watch an illiterate adult try to do it." - John Steinbeck

 "There is no beginning, no middle, no end, no suspense, no moral, no causes, no effects. What we love in our books are the depths of many marvelous moments seen all at one time." - Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five
