Jeffrey Eugenides
“Every letter was a love letter.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot

Ričardas Gavelis
“Didžiausia mano nelaimė — kad anaiptol ne iškart tapau savimi. Mūsų niekas nemokė būti savimi. Mus mokė būti tuo ir anuo, lipdyti save pagal kokį nusususį ar nežemiškai idealų modelį, kurį sugalvojome ne mes patys. Mokė keisti, lamdyti save, mokė prisitaikyti.

Tačiau niekad nemokė būti savimi.

Būti savimi anaiptol nėra paprasta, tam reikalingas didis talentas. Dabar dažnai pamanau, kad genialumas tėra viso labo tobulas gebėjimas begal tvirtai, užsispyrus, ligi pat gali išlikti pačiu savimi.”
Ričardas Gavelis, Jauno žmogaus memuarai: Keturiolikos laiškų romanas

Sigitas Parulskis
“Lietuvoj viskas juokinga, išskyrus humorą.”
Sigitas Parulskis, Sraigė su beisbolo lazda

Jeffrey Eugenides
“People don't save other people. People save themselves.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot

Ernest Hemingway
“Women made such swell friends. Awfully swell. In the first place, you had to be in love with a woman to have a basis of friendship. I had been having Brett for a friend. I had not been thinking about her side of it. I had been getting something for nothing. That only delayed the presentation of the bill. The bill always came. That was one of the swell things you could count on.
I thought I had paid for everything. Not like the woman pays and pays and pays. No idea of retribution or punishment. Just exchange of values. You gave up something and got something else. Or you worked for something. You paid some way for everything that was any good. I paid my way into enough things that I liked, so that I had a good time. Either you paid by learning about them, or by experience, or by taking chances, or by money. Enjoying living was learning to get your money’s worth. The world was a good place to buy in. It seemed like a fine philosophy. In five years, I though, it will seem just as silly as all the other fine philosophies I’ve had.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
