James Joyce
“He drew forth a phrase from his treasure and spoke it softly to himself:
A day of dappled seaborne clouds.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Ray Bradbury
“Why is it," he said, one time, at the subway entrance, "I feel I've known you so many years?"
"Because I like you," she said, "and I don't want anything from you.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Dave Eggers
“I will not wait to love as best as I can. We thought we were young and that there would be time to love well sometime in the future. This is a terrible way to think. It is no way to live, to wait to love.”
Dave Eggers, What is the What

Virginia Woolf
“I ask now, standing with my scissors among my flowers, Where can the shadow enter? [. . .] I am sick of the body, I am sick of my own craft, industry and cunning, of the unscrupulous ways of the mother who protects, who collects under her jealous eyes at one long table her own children, always her own.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

C.S. Lewis
“Few men looked on her without becoming, in a certain fashion, her lovers. But it was the kind of love that made them not less true, but truer, to their own wives.”
C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce
