“Perhaps they assumed that he would have a hard time putting her first. Perhaps they had not understood that for a long time she had come first with him, that for many years she had been his heart's home and his mind's anchor and that fighting to keep her alive was essential to preserving his own soul.”
Rafael Yglesias, A Happy Marriage

“There’s nothing that makes an artist more beloved than the audience pitying him because his work comes at a price they would never pay.”
Rafael Yglesias, The Wisdom of Perversity

“And into its bland merciless face what did he have to show as his proof that he deserved to live?

Rafael Yglesias, Fearless
