Alfred Bester
“The acid of fury ran through him, eating away the brute patience and sluggishness that had made a cipher of Gully Foyle, precipitating a chain of reactions that would make an infernal machine of Gully Foyle. He was dedicated.”
Alfred Bester, The Stars My Destination

Rae Carson
“I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it. Because it is the most painful kind of hope there is.”
Rae Carson, The Bitter Kingdom

Ziad K. Abdelnour
“If someone is going out of his way to ignore you, he is not ignoring you, he is obsessed by you.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour, Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics
