Kurt Vonnegut
“The boat is tied to shore. There aren't any oars in place. She isn't going anywhere. She wears a summer dress and a garden hat. Somebody has persuaded her to pose in the boat, with water around her and dappled with shade. She is laughing. She has just been married, or is about to be married. She will never be happier. She will never be more beautiful.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Deadeye Dick

Sam Weller
“We use certain authors at certain times of our lives, and we may never go back to them again.”
Sam Weller, Listen to the Echoes: The Ray Bradbury Interviews

H.G. Wells
“I suppose a suicide who holds a pistol to his skull feels much the same wonder at what will come next as I felt then.”
H.G. Wells

George Orwell
“As soon as I knew that the bullet had gone clean through my neck I took it for granted that I was done for. I had never heard of a man or an animal getting a bullet through the middle of the neck and surviving it. The blood was dribbling out of the corner of my mouth. 'The artery's gone,' I thought. I wondered how long you last when your carotid artery is cut; not many minutes, presumably. Everything was very blurry. There must have been about two minutes during which I assumed that I was killed. And that too was interesting - I mean it is interesting to know what your thoughts would be at such a time. My first thought, conventionally enough, was for my wife. My second was a violent resentment at having to leave this world which, when all is said and done, suits me so well. I had time to feel very vividly. The stupid mischance infuriated me. The meaninglessness of it!”
George Orwell, Homage to Catalonia
