Milorad Pavić

I could see the bird soaring away. And then I realised there was no more shutting of your eyes to the truth,no salvation in being blindfolded, no dream and reality,no being awake or asleep. Everything is one and the same continuing eternal day and world, coiling around you like a snake. This is when I saw vast, remote happiness as being small but close. ― Milorad Pavić, Dictionary of the Khazars: A Lexicon Novel in 100,000 Words. (Vintage; 1st Vintage international ed., Male ed edition, October 23, 1989)
