John Gardner, Grendel

"I understood that the world was nothing: a mechanical chaos of casual, brue enmity on which we stupidly impose our 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."
