Walter Benjamin
“Our image of happiness is indissolubly bound up with the image of redemption.”
Walter Benjamin

John Waters
“If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em!”
John Waters

Virginia Woolf
“Behind the cotton wool is hidden a pattern; that we—I mean all human beings—are connected with this; that the whole world is a work of art; that we are parts of the work of art. Hamlet or a Beethoven quartet is the truth about this vast mass that we call the world. But there is no Shakespeare, there is no Beethoven; certainly and emphatically there is no God; we are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself.”
Virginia Woolf, Moments of Being

W.H. Auden
“I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street”
W.H. Auden

Nicholson Baker
“I woke up thinking a very pleasant thought. There is lots left in the world to read.”
Nicholson Baker, The Anthologist
