Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow

  • You may never get to touch the Master, but you can tickle his creatures. (p.237)
  • The innocence of the creatures is in inverse proportion to the immorality of the Master. (p.241)
  • If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers. (p.251)
  • You hide, they seek. (p.262)
  • Paranoids are not paranoids because they’re paranoid, but because they keep putting themselves, fucking idiots, deliberately into paranoid situations. (p.292)
