The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
“It was rainy, trees leafing out, spring deepening into summer; and the forlorn cry of horns on the street, the dank smell of the wet pavement had an electricity about it, a sense of crowds and static, lonely secretaries and fat guys with bags of carry-out, everywhere the ungainly sadness of creatures pushing and struggling to live.”

Moth Smoke by Mohsin Hamid
“There are two social classes in Pakistan," Professor Superb said to his unsuspecting audience, gripping the podium with both hands as he spoke. "The first group, large and sweaty, contains those referred to as the masses. The second group is much smaller, but its members exercise vastly greater control over their immediate environment and are collectively termed the elite. The distinction between members of these two groups is made on the basis of control of an important resource:air-conditioning. You see, the elite have managed to re-create for themselves the living standards of say, Sweden without leaving the dusty plains of the subcontinent. They're a mixed lot - Punjabi and Pathans, Sindhis and Baluchis, smugglers , mullahs, soldiers, industrialists - united by their residence in an artificially cooled world. They wake up in air-conditioned houses, drive air-conditioned cars to air-conditioned offices, grab lunch in air-conditioned restaurants (rights of admission reserved), and a ...more Mohsin Hamid
Heroes are my weakness by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
"Just like how Katy Perry felt after she kissed a girl, I have read a Romance novel and I liked it. This genre is like bubble baths and chocolate bars and what the hell is wrong with that? Can't a guy take a bubble bath and eat a chocolate bar or d..." Read more of this review »

“Luckily, just at the world’s outer limit, right where a wandering soul needs it most, is a bar where he can get a beer.”

“A human being is primarily a bag for putting food into; the other functions and faculties may be more godlike, but in point of time they come afterwards. A man dies and is buried, and all his words and actions are forgotten, but the food he has eaten lives after him in the sound or rotten bones of his children. I think it could be plausibly argued that changes of diet are more important than changes of dynasty or even of religion....Yet it is curious how seldom the all-importance of food is recognized. You see statues everywhere to politicians, poets, bishops, but none to cooks or bacon-curers or market gardeners.”
George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier

“All progressions from a higher to a lower order are marked by ruins and mystery and a residue of nameless rage.”
Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

“In the so-called age of ignorance before Islam, our ancestors used to form their gods from dates and eat them when in need. Who is more ignorant then, dear sir, I or those who ate their gods?
You might say: “It is better for people to eat their gods than for the gods to eat them.”
But I’d respond: “Yes, but their gods were made of dates.”
--The Secret Life of Saeed, the Pessoptimist”
Emile Habiby, إميل حبيبي

“They can print statistics and count the populations in hundreds of thousands, but to each man a city consists of no more than a few streets, a few houses, a few people. Remove those few and a city exists no longer except as a pain in the memory, like a pain of an amputated leg no longer there.”
Graham Greene, Our Man in Havana

“Forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”
Jalaluddin Rumi
