„I think of myself, of all that I am. Myself, my home, my hours; the past, and the future, — it was going to be like the past!“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935
Context: I think of myself, of all that I am. Myself, my home, my hours; the past, and the future, — it was going to be like the past! And at that moment I feel, weeping within me and dragging itself from some little bygone trifle, a new and tragical sorrow in dying, a hunger to be warm once more in the rain and the cold: to enclose myself in myself in spite of space, to hold myself back, to live.

„I'm creating an imaginary — it's always imaginary — world in which I would like to live.“

—  William S. Burroughs American novelist, short story writer, essayist, painter, and spoken word performer 1914 - 1997
Context: You know, they ask me if I were on a desert island and I knew nobody would ever see what I wrote, would I go on writing. My answer is most emphatically yes. I would go on writing for company. Because I'm creating an imaginary — it's always imaginary — world in which I would like to live. Quoted in interview, The Paris Review (Fall 1965)
