“The content of lyric poetry, Hegel says, is the poet himself; he gives voice to his inner world so as to stir in his audience the feelings, the states of mind he experiences. And even if the poet treats `objective' themes, external to his own life, "the great lyric poet will very quickly move away from them and end up drawing the portrait of himself" ("stellt sich selber dar")”
“I have long seen youth as the lyrical age, that is, the age when the individual, focused almost exclusively on himself, is unable to see, to comprehend, to judge clearly the world around him. If we start with that hypothesis (necessarily schematic, but which, as a schema, I find accurate), then to pass from immaturity to maturity is to move beyond the lyrical attitude.If I imagine the genesis of a novelist in the form of an exemplary tale, a `myth', that genesis looks to me like a conversion story: Saul becoming Paul; the novelist being born from the ruins of his lyrical world.”

“koga gordosta ja pochituvash,taa kon tebe svirepa e i surova,a ako soberesh sila da ja prezresh,ke ja skrotish.”
“"It's only a problem if you rely on logic. That's my point. What you've got to do , Kid, is forget logic, admit its limitations, suspend your disbelief, and believe! It's the only way you'll be free to act. Otherwise you're stuck, frozen in disbelief. As good as dead.”
