Garrison Keillor
“You get old and you realize there are no answers, just stories.”
Garrison Keillor, Pontoon: A Novel of Lake Wobegon

Garrison Keillor
“IMPORTANT Book reading is a solitary and sedentary pursuit, and those who do are cautioned that a book should be used as an integral part of a well-rounded life, including a daily regimen of rigorous physical exercise, rewarding personal relationships, and sensible low-fat diet. A book should not be used a as a substitute or an excuse.”
Garrison Keillor, The Book of Guys

Scott McClanahan
“I couldn't believe it.

Something wasn't right.

I thought, "Batman smokes cigarettes."

I couldn't believe it. "Batman smokes fucking cigarettes."

I walked away and saw that Batman was just this stupid guy dressed up in a rubber suit, just as afraid as I was, and that I lived in a lost place inside my own heart, where even Batman couldn't help me.”
Scott McClanahan, Hill William

Garrison Keillor
“God writes a lot of comedy... the trouble is, he's stuck with so many bad actors who don't know how to play funny.”
Garrison Keillor, Happy to Be Here

Terry Pratchett
“A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores.”
Terry Pratchett, The Fifth Elephant
