Martin Amis

British novelist and critic
America still is the center of the world, and what happens in the American economy matters everywhere.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Standing in the nordic nook of the kitchen, I can gaze down at the flimsy-limbed joggers heading south towards the Park. It's nearly as bad as New York. Some of these gasping fatsos, these too-little-too-late artists, they look as though they're running up rising ground, climbing ground. My generation, we started all this. Before, everyone was presumably content to feel like death the whole time. Now they want to feel terrific for ever.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of the unseen benefits of having children is that they deliver you from your own selfishness. There's no going back.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Let me assure you that the humourless as a bunch don't just not know what's funny, they don't know what's serious. They have no common sense, either, and shouldn't be trusted with anything.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The children of the nuclear age, I think, were weakened in their capacity to love. Hard to love, when you're bracing yourself for impact. Hard to love, when the loved one, and the lover, might at any instant become blood and flames, along with everybody else.More Martin Amis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
