William H. Gass
“The arts of conversation which his circle cultivated were, in great part, the gossipacious arts: that of making much out of little, of displaying your wit and inventive facility, your ability to amuse, without boring your listeners with too many ideas, or unpleasantly stretching their minds on the rack of an “issue.” It was a world which took an intense but mainly anecdotal interest in people, and which was therefore also on its guard against just the same exposure of itself which it so assiduously sought to gain against others.”
William H. Gass, Fiction and the Figures of Life

Henry James
“Live as you like best, and your character will take care of itself. Most things are good for you; the exceptions are very rare.”
Henry James
