“At first glance, it seems hard to believe these two men are even related, let alone brothers. Tom is content if there happens to be a game on and a soft place from which to watch it. Navidson works out everyday, devours volumes of esoteric criticism, and constantly butcher the world around him to one thing: photography. Tom gets by, Navidson succeeds. Tom just wants to be, Navidson must become. And yet despite such obvious differences, anyone who looks past Tom’s wide grin and considers his eyes will find surprisingly deep pools of sorrow. Which is how we know they are brothers, because like Tom, Navidson’s eyes share the same water.” - House of Leaves

“Zampano himself probably would of insisted on corrections, and edits, he was his own harshest critic, but i’ve come to believe in errors, especially written errors, are often the only markers left by a solitary life: to sacrifice them is to lose angles of personality, the riddle of the soul” - House of Leaves (imprint of the author in literature)
