Rebecca liked a quote
The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
“...I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire...I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.”
William Faulkner

It took a little while to fall into the writing style. But there are quite a few gems in here.

It's both interesting, sad, and uplifting to read the innermost thoughts of a person you admire. Without question, it either improves or lessens your opinio

Rebecca and 2 other people liked Judyw Winkleman's review of 5 Pennies to Spend:
5 Pennies to Spend by Miriam Young
"This was one of the very first books I remember reading as a child. I think I loved the pictures as much as the story. I read it so much, I literally wore off the front cover. My father re-covered it with cardboard, and I drew my own illustration..." Read more of this review »

“...I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire...I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

Jack Kerouac
“Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk — real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Richard Wright
“Anything seemed possible, likely, feasible, because I wanted everything to be possible... Because I had no power to make things happen outside of me in the objective world, I made things happen within. Because my environment was bare and bleak, I endowed it with unlimited potentialities, redeemed it for the sake of my own hungry and cloudy yearning.”
Richard Wright, Black Boy

William Faulkner
“…I seemed to be lying neither asleep nor awake looking down a long corridor of gray half light where all stable things had become shadowy paradoxical all I had done shadows all I had felt suffered taking visible form antic and perverse mocking without relevance inherent themselves with the denial of the significance they should have affirmed thinking I was I was not who was not was not who.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

Mark Z. Danielewski
“Sublime is something you choke on after a shot of tequila.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves
