“stanchion, n.

I don't want to be the strong one, but I don't want to be the weak one either. Why does it feel like it's always one or the other? When we embrace, one of us is always holding the other a little tighter.”
David Levithan, The Lover's Dictionary

Julian Barnes
“What you end up remembering isn't always the same as what you have witnessed.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

“This was another of our fears: that Life wouldn't turn out to be like Literature.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

Julian Barnes
“We live in time - it holds us and molds us - but I never felt I understood it very well. And I'm not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist elsewhere in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tock, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time's malleability. Some emotions speed it up, others slow it down; occasionally, it seems to go missing - until the eventual point when it really does go missing, never to return.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending
