J.D. Salinger
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

John Steinbeck
“It would be absurd if we did not understand both angels and devils, since we invented them.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Lori Osterman
“You are stronger than you know.”
Lori Osterman

Aisha Tyler
“Get up, go out into the world, and do awesome shit.”
Aisha Tyler, Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation
