„For if everybody else is also not what Jesus said he was, what good is what he said?“

Sons Come and Go, Mothers Hang in Forever (1976)
Kontext: Jesus never said anything about absurdity, and he never indicated for one flash of time that he was aware of the preposterousness of his theory about himself. And he didn't even try to make the theory understandable in terms of the reality and experience of the rest of us. For if everybody else is also not what Jesus said he was, what good is what he said?

„He himself had said near enough exactly what was in the play.“

—  Imre Kertész Hungarian writer 1929 - 2016

Liquidation (2003)
Kontext: He himself had said near enough exactly what was in the play. The only snag was that by the time that scene was played out in reality, almost word for word, the person who had written the play, and that scene in it, was no longer alive.
He had committed suicide.
