"And if I went on listening to that far whisper, silent long since and which
I still hear, I would learn still more, about this. But I will listen no
longer, for the time being, to that far whisper, for I do not like it, I
fear it. But it is not a sound like the other sounds, that you listen to,
when you choose, and can sometimes silence, by going away or stopping your
ears, no, but it is a sound which begins to rustle in your head, without
your knowing how, or why. It's with your head you hear it, not your ears,
you can't stop it, but it stops itself, when it chooses. It makes no
difference therefore whether I listen to it or not, I shall hear it always,
no thunder can deliver me, until it stops."

— Samuel Beckett, Molloy, p. 40

"It is in the tranquillity of decomposition that I remember the long
confused emotion which was my life, and that I judge it, as it is said that
God will judge me, and with no less impertinence. To decompose is to live
too, I know, I know, don't torment me, but one sometimes forgets."

— Samuel Beckett, Molloy, p. 25

"A writing that refers only to itself and a writing that refers indefinitely
to some other writing might appear noncontradictory: the reflecting screen
never captures anything but writing, indefinitely, stopping nowhere, and
each reference still confines us within the element of reflection. Of
course. But the difficulty arises in the relation between the medium of
writing and the determination of each textual unit. It is necessary that
while referring each time to another text, to another determinate system,
each organism only refer to itself as a determinate structure, a structure
that is oper and closed at the same time."

— Jacques Derrida, Dissemination, p. 202
