“It’s been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home — only the millions of last moments … nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.” Thomas Pynchon – Gravity’s Rainbow
“Grace before Glutton. For what we are, gifs a gross if we are, about to believe.” James Joyce- Finnegans Wake
