Famous quotes containing the words comic and/or book:
“What the Journal posits is not the tragic question, the Madmans question: Who am I?, but the comic question, the Bewildered Mans question: Am I? A comica comedian, thats what the Journal keeper is.”
—Roland Barthes (19151980)
Ay, thou poor ghost, whiles memory holds a seat
In this distracted globe. Remember thee?
Yea, from the table of my memory
Ill wipe away all trivial fond records,
All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past
That youth and observation copied there,
And thy commandment all alone shall live
Within the book and volume of my brain,”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
