Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.”
Charles Dickens
Tawanda liked a quote
The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler
“Maybe I can quit drinking one of these days. They all say that, don't they?"
"It takes about three years."
"Three years?" He looked shocked. "Usually it does. It's a different world. You have to get used to a paler set of colors, a quieter lot of sounds. You have to allow for relapses. All the people you used to know well will get to be just a little strange. You won't even like most of them, and they won't like you too well.”
Raymond Chandler
Tawanda liked a quote
Pearls are a Nuisance by Raymond Chandler
“He snorted and hit me in the solar plexus. I bent over and took hold of the room with both hands and spun it. When I had it nicely spinning I gave it a full swing and hit myself on the back of the head with the floor.”
Raymond Chandler

Friedrich Nietzsche
“I hate you most because you attract, but are not strong enough to pull me to you.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Franz Kafka
“I’m tired, can’t think of anything and want only to lay my face in your lap, feel your hand on my head and remain like that through all eternity.”
Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena

Robert Graves
“This seems to me a philosophical question, and therefore irrelevant, question. A poet's destiny is to love.”
Robert Graves

Franz Kafka
“My condition is not unhappiness, but it is also not happiness, not indifference, not weakness, not fatigue, not another interest – so what is it then?”
Franz Kafka, Diaries of Franz Kafka

Marcel Proust
“They reminded me that it was my fate to pursue only phantoms, creatures whose reality existed to a great extent in my imagination; for there are people - and this had been my case since youth - for whom all the things that have a fixed value, assessable by others, fortune, success, high positions, do not count; what they must have is phantoms. They sacrifice all the rest, devote all their efforts, make everything else subservient to the pursuit of some phantom. But this soon fades away; then they run after another only to return later on to the first.”
Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time
