Quote
In the train stations and the airports, he travels with his ghosts. He can throw away photographs, dispose of things, cast off old clothes – still his former lives are entwined with the present and he can hear his roots shriek, refusing to be sacrificed. They throb, connected, ripped from the fields of consciousness.
Virginie Despentes, Vernon Subutex 3

Quote
The avenue was ancient and was well-established in our city – over time its name had become synonymous with the city itself, and if someone were to say: I live just off the avenue, it would not be quite clear whether they meant that they lived in one of the city's nearby suburbs or in the very centre, just round the corner from the actual avenue, so confused had the terms become. But the avenue, notwithstanding its splendour and just reputation, was still only an avenue, and this meant that if indeed it began by the shoreline – it must also end somewhere, probably beyond the hills.
Rachel Shihor, The Tower of Babel

The world is at the edge of meditation, a world covered with exuberant peace no country that I have traveled has ever seen.

Urgently, more insistently than was called for, Frieda asked him to stay, as though all the consoling things he had said to her would be confirmed only if he stayed.

All this wasn't too painful, it was part of the series of life's endless little sufferings, it was nothing in comparison with what K. was striving for, he had not come here in order to lead a life in honor and peace.
