Endgame/Fin de partie

The new year approaches and I come upon this perfect bit of dialogue from Samuel Beckett’s Endgame:

Clor: Do you believe in the life to come?
Hamm: Mine was always that.

I wonder about mine.
And yours?

    Spoken of living on a square centimeter : Beckett was the ultimate example. Staying in bed for how long???

    We read him first at 18 at school. Since then he has a special place in my heart. Not that i did understand everything with my mind – "but I felt that is was all in there." i use to say . And you don’t need to know the whole of the Greek tragedies or anything to understand him. The words are easy. Like Vermeer or Morandi it is so simple – just life…

    You know the trilogy Molloy – Malone dies – Nameless? You know the end of Nameless????
