Albert Camus
“If absolute truth belongs to anyone in this world, it certainly does not belong to the man or party that claims to possess it.”
Albert Camus

Edith Wharton
“I don't know if I should care for a man who made life easy; I should want someone who made it interesting.”
Edith Wharton

William Maxwell
“What we, or at any rate what I, refer to confidently as memory--meaning a moment, a scene, a fact that has been subjected to a fixative and thereby rescued from oblivion--is really a form of storytelling that goes on continually in the mind and often changes with the telling. Too many conflicting emotional interests are involved for life ever to be wholly acceptable, and possibly it is the work of the storyteller to rearrange things so that they conform to this end. In any case, in talking about the past we lie with every breath we draw.”
William Maxwell, So Long, See You Tomorrow
