Wilkie Collins
“At the age when we are all of us most apt to take our colouring, in the form of a reflection from the colouring of other people, he had been sent abroad, and had been passed on from one nation to another, before there was time for any one colouring more than another to settle itself on him firmly. As a consequence of this, he had come back with so many different sides to his character, all more or less jarring with each other, that he seemed to pass his life in a state of perpetual contradiction with himself. He could be a busy man, and a lazy man; cloudy in the head, and clear in the head; a model of determination, and a spectacle of helplessness, all together. He had his French side, and his German side, and his Italian side--the original English foundation showing through, every now and then, as much as to say, "Here I am, sorely transmogrified, as you see, but there's something of me left at the bottom of him still.”
Wilkie Collins, The Moonstone

Ann Patchett
“Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. … It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see.”
Ann Patchett, Bel Canto

Ogden Nash
“The door of a bigoted mind opens outwards so that the only result of the pressure of facts upon it is to close it more snugly.”
Ogden Nash

Frances Mayes
“Five tender apricots in a blue bowl, a brief and exact promise of things to come.”
Frances Mayes, In Tuscany

Anita Diamant
“The painful things seemed like knots on a beautiful necklace, necessary for keeping the beads in place.”
Anita Diamant, The Red Tent
