    جوامع ِ در حال ِ مرگ می‌خندند... *** هجونویس می‌گوید خنده نشان سلامتی‌ست – درست به عکس، خنده ما را مسموم کرده است. *** ردّ و طرد ِ خنده به معنای ِ آن نیست که حالتی نزار و فلاکت‌بار به خود بگیریم. تراژدی نزار و فلاکت‌بار نیست. *** آن‌ها به خود جرأت می‌دهند ــ منظورم کسانی ست که ما را می‌خندانند ــ که بگویند بدون ِ وجود ِ آن‌ها، ما افسرده و مأیوس می‌شویم. تراژدی یأس‌آور نیست؛ و از آن رو که تراژدی در جهان ِ مرگ جای دارد، ناگزیر به این نتیجه می رسیم که مرگ یأس آور نیست... *** آنچه بوده، هست و برای ِ همیشه جوامع ِ در حال ِ مرگ می‌خندند... *** هجونویس می‌گوید خنده نشان سلامتی‌ست – درست به عکس، خنده ما را مسموم کرده است. *** ردّ و طرد ِ خنده به معنای ِ آن نیست که حالتی نزار و فلاکت‌بار به خود بگیریم. تراژدی نزار و فلاکت‌بار نیست. *** آن‌ها به خود جرأت می‌دهند ــ منظورم کسانی ست که ما را می‌خندانند ــ که بگویند بدون ِ وجود ِ آن‌ها، ما افسرده و مأیوس می‌شویم. تراژدی یأس‌آور نیست؛ و از آن رو که تراژدی در جهان ِ مرگ جای دارد، ناگزیر به این نتیجه می رسیم که مرگ یأس آور نیست... *** آنچه بوده، هست و برای ِ همیشه خواهد بود، نمی‌تواند یأس‌آور باشد. یأس نشان ِ شکست و استیصال ِ روح است. چه کسانی بیش از همه مأیوس‌اند؟ بازیگران ِ کمدی. هراس قلمرو آن‌هاست. تراژدی از هیچ چیزی "هراس" ندارد. تراژدی وارد ِ قلمرو ِ مرگ می‌شود و ورود ِ به این قلمرو را همچون جبری وجدانگیز [در خود] حس می کند.

    this is a collection of connected aphorisms that challenges your approach to life--if you let it under your skin, it will unsettle you out of a complacency you didn't even know you had settled into. this is a collection of connected aphorisms that challenges your approach to life--if you let it under your skin, it will unsettle you out of a complacency you didn't even know you had settled into.

    Never before has a book said nothing at all while arranging words to say very little.
