Quote Of The Day

From the novel The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

28th March 2005 · Last updated: 5th October 2016


"Television, my dear Daniel, is the Antichrist, and I can assure you that after only three or four generations, people will no longer even know how to fart on their own. Humans will return to living in caves, to medieval savagery, and to the general state of imbecility that slugs overcame back in the Pleistocene era. Our world will not die as a result of the bomb, as the papers say ― it will die of laughter, of banality, of making a joke of everything, and a lousy joke at that."
