Graham Greene
“The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belongs to me and to no other.

Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

“company. To move in any good circle, even one as”
Steven Naifeh, Van Gogh

Julian Barnes
“Who was it said that memory is what we thought we’d forgotten?”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

Bernard Malamud
“We have two lives... the life we learn with and the life we live after that. Suffering is what brings us towards happiness.”
Bernard Malamud, The Natural
