Joan Didion
“We tell ourselves stories in order to live.”
Joan Didion, The White Album

Stephanie Danler
“There are so many things to be blasé about: your youth, your health, your employment. But real food—gifts from the ocean, no less—is not one of them. It’s one of the only things that can immerse you safely in pleasure in this degraded, miserable place.”
Stephanie Danler, Sweetbitter

Maggie Nelson
“Empirically speaking, we are made of star stuff. Why aren’t we talking more about that?”
Maggie Nelson, The Argonauts

Joan Didion
“I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.”
Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Lidia Yuknavitch
“If I could go back, I'd coach myself. I'd be the woman who taught me how to stand up, how to want things, how to ask for them. I'd be the woman who says, your mind, your imagination, they are everything. Look how beautiful. You deserve to sit at the table. The radiance falls on all of us.”
Lidia Yuknavitch, The Chronology of Water
