Citáty Scarlett Thomas


„Života, stejně jako snů.“ The End of Mr. Y

„Real life is physical. Give me books instead. Give me the invisibility of the contents of books, the thoughts, the ideas, the images. Let me become part of a book.... an intertextual being: a book cyborg, or, considering that books aren't cybernetic, perhaps a bibliorg.“ The End of Mr. Y


„Routine kills creative thought.“ PopCo

„I wonder if the reason I tend to say yes to everything is because I deeply believe that I can survive anything.“ The End of Mr. Y

„If something wants to be a story, it will be.“ The End of Mr. Y

„Some writers, notably Anton Chekov, argue that all characters must be admirable, because once we've looked at anyone deeply enough and understood their motivation we must identify with them rather than judge them.“ Monkeys with Typewriters: How to Write Fiction and Unlock the Secret Power of Stories

„In real life nothing means anything. Stuff happens and there just is no structure.“ Going Out

„I pray for meaning. I pray for the limits of reality to become clear. For a world – and a type of being – that makes sense. I pray for a life after death that is not like this life. I pray for the end of mystery. What would a life be like with all the mysteries solved? If there were no questions, there’d be no stories. If there were no stories, there’d be no language. If there was no language there’d be no... What?“ The End of Mr. Y


„Over to my left is the big grey wall in front of the church.

Are we the Thoughts of God? a poster asks.

No, I realise. It's the reverse.“
The End of Mr. Y

„So if we're all quarks and electrons..." he begins.

What?"

We could make love and it would be nothing more than quarks and electrons rubbing together."

Better than that," I say. "Nothing really 'rubs together' in the microscopic world. Matter never really touches other matter, so we could make love without any of our atoms touching at all. Remember that electrons sit on the outside of atoms, repelling other electrons. So we could make love and actually repel each other at the same time.“
The End of Mr. Y

„One of the paradoxes of writing is that when you write non-fiction everyone tries to prove that it's wrong, and when you publish fiction, everyone tries to see the truth in it.“ Our Tragic Universe

„I think about stories and their logic and wonder if there can be any such thing as simply "there is a book.“ The End of Mr. Y


„Oh fuck. It’s like period pain in my head. It’s toothache of the brain.“ The End of Mr. Y

„I erased the thought from my mind, but I couldn't undo the fact that I'd had the thought in the first place.“ Our Tragic Universe

„Most people would look at an animal in a cage and instinctively feel that it should be set free.... It's a dangerous world out there, filled with predators.... What would you prefer? A comfortable, safe, warm, cosy life in a cage, or an uncertain life of freedom.“ Going Out

„Sometimes I wake up with such an immense sense of disappointment that I can hardly breathe.“ The End of Mr. Y
