“I understood that the world was nothing:

a mechanical chaos of casual, brute enmity on which we stupidly impose ou hopes and fears. I understood that, finally and absolutely, I alone exist. All the rest, I saw, is merely what pushes me, or what I push against, blindly–as blindly as all that is not myself pushes back. I create the whole universe, blink by blink.–An ugly god pitifully dying in a tree!”

Grendel, John Gardner (pp. 21-22)
