Lord Foul's Bane | Stephen R. Donaldson

“As he stepped across the threshold, Covenant's nostrils were assaulted by a pungent reek, a smell like that of rotten flesh lying in a latrine. It defied mere carbolic acid and ointments to mask it. It came from a shrunken figure sitting grotesquely on the white bed. Slowly the patient raised his arms as if to embrace Covenant. His hands were swollen stumps, fingerless lumps of pink, sick meat marked by cracks and ulcerations...” #grotesque

rwmg A friend of mine fainted on a bus when he read that passage. Since I was the one who recommended the book to him, I did feel guilty (edited) 4w

Sometimes the poor are praised for being thrifty. But to recommend thrift to the poor is both #grotesque and insulting. It is like advising a man who is starving to eat less.
- Oscar Wilde

"Nature is busy creating absolutely unique individuals, whereas culture has invented a single mold to which all must conform. It is grotesque." - Jiddu Krishnamurti

“She tries to ask the Boy what he means, but the voices of the birds rise in a #grotesque wave, nearly symphonic, shrieking. It sounds like there are too many for the trees to hold. Like they make up the entire sky.” #QuotsyOct19 #AllHallowsRead
