Great Writers[]

Faulkner's More Great Works
Name Great Work Quote
Anthony Burgess Greatwork A Clockwork Orange "Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses to be bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?"
Aristotle Greatwork The Politics "He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god."
Arthur Miller Greatwork Death of a Salesman "Never fight fair with a stranger, boy. You'll never get out of the jungle that way."
Astrid Lindgren Greatwork Pippi Longstocking "The children came to a perfume shop. In the show window was a large jar of freckle salve, and beside the jar was a sign, which read: DO YOU SUFFER FROM FRECKLES?"
Ayn Rand Greatwork Atlas Shrugged "Live and act within the limit of your knowledge and keep expanding it to the limit of your life."
Boris Pasternak Greatwork Dr. Zhivago "What for centuries raised man above the beast is not the cudgel but the irresistible power of unarmed truth."
C. S. Lewis Greatwork The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe "Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before."
Carson McCullers Greatwork The Heart is a Lonely Hunter "And why did everyone persist in thinking the mute was exactly as they wanted him to be--when most likely it was all a very queer mistake?... In the battling tumult of voices he alone was silent."
Charles Bukowski Greatwork Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame "They feel no terror at not loving or at not being loved; So many many many of my fellow creatures."
e. e. cummings Greatwork 1 x 1 "pity this busy monster, manunkind, not."
Emily Brontë Greatwork Wuthering Heights "Treachory and violence are spears pointed at both ends - they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies."
Franz Kafka Greatwork The Trial "The right understanding of any matter and a misunderstanding of the same matter do not wholly exclude each other."
Friedrich Nietzche Greatwork Beyond Good and Evil "He who fights with monsters should look that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you."
H. P. Lovecraft Greatwork The Call of Cthulhu "That is not dead which can eternal lie,

And with strange aeons even death may die."

Hans Christian Andersen Greatwork The Emperor's New Clothes ""But he has nothing on at all," cried at last the whole people. That made a deep impression upon the emperor, for it seemed to him that they were right; but he thought to himself, "Now I must bear up to the end." And the chamberlains walked with still greater dignity, as if they carried the train which did not exist."
Harper Lee Greatwork To Kill a Mockingbird "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it."
Henry Miller Greatwork Tropic of Cancer "Not one of us is intact, and yet we have in us all the continents and the seas between the continents and the birds of the air. We are going to put it down -- the evolution of this world which has died but which has not been buried."
Herodotus Greatwork The Histories "In peace sons bury fathers, but in war fathers bury sons."
Hunter S. Thompson Greatwork The Rum Diary "The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but to those who see it coming and jump aside."
Isaac Asimov Greatwork Foundation "Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right."
J. D. Salinger Greatwork The Catcher in the Rye "I am always saying "Glad to've met you" to somebody I'm not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though."
J. K. Rowling Greatwork Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows "Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?"
J. R. R. Tolkien Greatwork The Lord of the Rings "All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost."

Jack Kerouac Greatwork Big Sur "The fog says 'We are fog and we fly by dissolving like ephemera,' and the leaves say 'We are leaves and we jiggle in the wind, that's all, we come and go, grow and fall' - Even the paper bags in my garbage pit say 'We are mantransformed paper bags made out of wood pulp, we are kinda proud of being paper bags as long as that will be possible, but we'll be mush again with our sisters the leaves come rainy season'."
James Joyce Greatwork Ulysses "A man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery."
Johann Wolfgang von Geothe Greatwork Faust "Man errs, 'til he has ceased to strive."
John Milton Greatwork Paradise Lost "Who overcomes by force, hath overcome but half his foe."
John Steinbeck Greatwork The Grapes of Wrath "For anybody else it was a mistake, but if you think it was a sin—then it's a sin. A fella builds his own sins right up from the groun'."
Jonathan Swift Greatwork Gulliver's Travels "Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old."
Joseph Conrad Greatwork Heart of Darkness "The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much."
Joseph Heller Greatwork Catch-22 "He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt."
Loren Ellis[MGW-W 1] Greatwork Crack the Blade "You can only tell, and tell as true as you can. The telling is all you have, for only you have seen the things you have seen. Some will not believe, and they cannot be helped. They must not be blamed, though, for who could believe in such things? But, some may. They are the ones who matter. When we have told all those who will believe, then our work will be done."
Malcolm Lowry Greatwork Under the Volcano "What is man but a little soul holding up a corpse?"
Noam Chomsky Greatwork Manufacturing Consent "If you're in favor of freedom of speech, that means you're in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise."
Orson Scott Card Greatwork Ender's Game "In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him."
Percy Bysshe Shelley Greatwork Ozymandias "'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!' Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Ray Bradbury Greatwork Fahrenheit 451 "If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you'll never learn."
Robert Frost Greatwork The Road Not Taken "Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood and I- I took the one less traveled by."

Sir Thomas Malory Greatwork Le Morte d'Arthur "The joy of love is too short, and the sorrow thereof, and what cometh thereof, dureth over long."
Stephen King Greatwork The Stand "Show me a man or a woman alone and I'll show you a saint. Give me two and they'll fall in love. Give me three and they'll invent the charming thing we call 'society'. Give me four and they'll build a pyramid. Give me five and they'll make one an outcast. Give me six and they'll reinvent prejudice."
T. S. Eliot Greatwork The Waste Land "I will show you fear in a handful of dust."
Thomas Hobbes Greatwork Leviathan "In the first place, I put for a general inclination of all mankind, a perpetual and restless desire of power after power, that ceaseth only in death."
Virginia Woolf Greatwork To the Lighthouse "A light here required a shadow there."
Vladimin Nabokov Greatwork Lolita "All I want to stress is that my discovery of her was a fatal consequence of that 'princedom by the sea' in my tortured past. Everything between the two events was but a series of gropings and blunders, and false rudiments of joy."
William Blake Greatwork The Tiger "Tiger! Tiger! burning bright

n the forest of the night What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"

William Faulkner Greatwork The Sound and the Fury "I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire."
William Golding Greatwork Lord of the Flies "Maybe there is a beast... maybe it's only us."
William S. Burroughs Greatwork Naked Lunch "Be just and if you can't be just, be arbitrary."
William Strunk, Jr. Greatwork The Elements of Style "Nauseous. Nauseated. The first means "sickening to contemplate"; the second means "sick at the stomach." Do not, therefore, say "I feel nauseous," unless you are sure you have that effect on others."
Note: Despite listing [Ovid's Greatwork Metamorphoses] and [Gustave Flaubert's Greatwork Madame Bovary] as part of the mod, no code for those Authors, nor their Great Works can be found in the mod.
  1. Additionally, the mod contains Greatwork 'Crack the Blade' by a Loren Ellis, despite not being mentioned. Upon inspection, this is probably the mod author.
Sas's Ukrainian Great People
Ivan Bahrianyi Greatwork Hulyai-Pole "He holds his heart with his hand.

He touches three skulls with his foot - a black one, a yellow one, and a white one: ...There was a great-great-grandfather, a great-grandfather... And a son..."

Ivan Franko= Greatwork Kameniari "And in this way we go forward, as a congregation united

By this holy thought, with mallets in hand. We who are cursed, and forgotten by the world! We break down the cliffs, level out the true roads, And fortune will walk to all o'er our dear bones."

Lesya Ukrainka Greatwork The Forest Song "Do you not hear the nightingale singing the marriage song?"

"'Tis true... I hear that she no longer chirps or twitters as she always did. She sings 'Now kiss her! Kiss her! Kiss!' And her I'll kiss! Kiss her to death!"

Lina Kostenko Greatwork Wings "A human surely cannot fly, but we do have wings to soar up high."
Taras Shevchenko Greatwork Hymn Of Exile "On fields and woods the darkness falls

From heaven blue a bright star calls, The tears fall down. Oh, evening star! Hast thou appeared in Ukraine far? In that fair land do sweet eyes seek thee Dear eyes that once were wont to greet me? Have eyes forgotten their tryst to keep? Oh then, in slumber let them sleep No longer o'er my fate to weep."
