Ben Macintyre
“He preferred women to men, and horses to both.”
Ben Macintyre, A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal

Steve Toltz
“Then I started thinking about tears. What was evolution up to when it rendered the human body incapable of concealing sadness? Is it somehow crucial to the survival of the species that we can’t hide our melancholy? Why? What’s the evolutionary benefit of crying? To elicit sympathy? Does evolution have a Machiavellian streak?”
Steve Toltz, A Fraction of the Whole

“Law and order are never enough to keep a people dancing.”
Burton L. Mack, Who Wrote the New Testament?: The Making of the Christian Myth

Tom McCarthy
“Well, he replied, finally letting my hand go so that he could gesticulate with his; you don your khakis, schlep off to some jungle, hang out with the natives, fish and hunt with them, shiver from their fevers, drink strange brew fermented in their virgins’ mouths, and all the rest; then, after about a year, they lug your bales and cases down to the small jetty that connects their tiny world to the big one that they kind of know exists, but only as an abstract concept, like adultery for children; and, waving with big, gap-toothed smiles, they send you back to your study—where, khakis swapped for cotton shirt and tie, saliva-liquor for the Twinings, tisane or iced Scotch your housekeeper purveys you on a tray, you write the book: that’s what I mean, he said. Not just a book: the fucking Book. You write the Book on them. Sum their tribe up. Speak its secret name.”
Tom McCarthy, Satin Island

Luis Fernando Verissimo
“Imagine the marvels we would experience if we believed in the things in which we don’t believe.”
Luis Fernando Verissimo, Borges And The Eternal Orang-Utans
