P. Auster – The New York Trilogy

‘You see, the world is in fragmentns, sir. Not only have we lost our sense of purpose, we have lost the language whereby we can speak of it.’

Here’s one of the highlights of the novel, a sentence that sums up our present condition just so perfectly.  Yet let me indulge a different train of thought here. What I mean is that there are so many of them! All of these quotes that say everything with a tiny number of words. Hundreds of them scattered around, each and every a complete world in its own. How can they co-exist so peacefully? How can there be so many different ways to describe everything ultimately? I suppose it’s not a digression after all. The very reason is the fragmentation of the world, indeed.
