Quotes Keith Liked

J.D. Salinger
“If I were God, I certainly wouldn't want people to love me sentimentally. It's too unreliable.”
J.D. Salinger, Nine Stories

J.D. Salinger
“I mean they don't seem able to love us just the way we are. They don't seem able to love us unless they can keep changing us a little bit. They love their reasons for loving us almost as much as they love us, and most of the time more.”
J.D. Salinger, Nine Stories

“I mean it's very hard to meditate and live a spiritual life in America. People think you're a freak if you try to.”

J.D. Salinger
“I prayed for the city to be cleared of people, for the gift of being alone—a-l-o-n-e: which is the one New York prayer that rarely gets lost or delayed in channels, and in no time at all everything I touched turned to solid loneliness.”
J.D. Salinger, Nine Stories

J.D. Salinger
“You asked me how to get out of the finite dimensions when I feel like it. I certainly don't use logic when I do it. Logic's the first thing you have to get rid of.”
J.D. Salinger, Nine Stories
