Thoughts by other professors:

That’s what poems are for, so you don’t understand a thing.

~ Tatyana Tolstaya, The Slynx


Literature was not born the day when a boy crying “wolf, wolf” came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels; literature was born on the day when a boy came crying “wolf, wolf” and there was no wolf behind him.

~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lectures on Literature


Only entropy comes easy.

~ Anton Chekhov
