David Foster Wallace
“I read," I say. "I study and read. I bet I've read everything you read. Don't think I haven't. I consume libraries. I wear out spines and ROM-drives. I do things like get in a taxi and say, "The library, and step on it." My instincts concerning syntax and mechanics are better than your own, I can tell, with all due respect. But it transcends the mechanics. I'm not a machine. I feel and believe. I have opinions. Some of them are interesting. I could, if you'd let me, talk and talk.”
David Foster Wallace

Tennessee Williams
“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains.”
Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire
