Russian writer
There's a scientific hypothesis that every person's name is a primary suggestive command that contains the entire script of their life in highly concentrated form. . . . According to this point of view, there is only a limited number of names, because society only needs a limited number of human types. Just a few models of worker and warrior ants, if I could put it like that. And everybody's psyche is preprogrammed at a basic level by the associative semantic fields that their first name and surname activate.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reading is human contact, and the range of our human contacts is what makes us what we are. Just imagine you live the life of a long-distance truck driver. The books that you read are like the travelers you take into your cab. If you give lifts to people who are cultured and profound, you'll learn a lot from them. If you pick up fools, you'll turn into a fool yourself.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Ludwig Wittgenstein once said that names are the only things that exist in the world. Maybe that's true, but the problem is that as time passes by, names do not remain the same - even if they don't change.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In order for him to believe sincerely in eternity, others had to share in this belief, because a belief that no one else shares is called schizophrenia.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
