Jonathan Safran Foer
“I hope that one day you will have the experience of doing something you do not understand for someone you love.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

George Orwell
“On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time.”
George Orwell, All Art is Propaganda: Critical Essays

Markus Zusak
“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Jonathan Safran Foer
“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

Milan Kundera

No, "sketch" is not quite a word, because a sketch is an outline of something, the groundwork for a picture, whereas the sketch that is our life is a sketch for nothing, an outline with no picture.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
