„Moby-Dick Zitat der Woche“ No.16 *

stamp-02Stephen King. Novelist.

Setting: P.S. 6 playground.

King: Symbols shmimbols. Sure they’re important but…
Well look at Ahab’s whale. Now there’s a great symbol.
Some say it stands for god, meaning, and purpose.
Some say it stands for purposelessness and the void.
But what we sometimes forget is that Ahab’s whale was
also just a whale.

Mark Z. Danielewski: House of Leaves
