"This is sooo good that I'm reading it slowly to make the book last as long as possible. If Jonathan Franzen is ever remembered for anything, it should be for "discovering" and promoting Nell Zink." Nov 20, 2015 03:53PM

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship

Voltairine de Cleyre
“If this is the price to be paid for an idea, then let us pay. There is no need of being troubled about it, afraid, or ashamed. This is the time to boldly say, “Yes, I believe in the displacement of this system of injustice by a just one; I believe in the end of starvation, exposure, and the crimes caused by them; I believe in the human soul regnant over all laws which man has made or will make; I believe there is no peace now, and there will never be peace, so long as one rules over another; I believe in the total disintegration and dissolution of the principle and practice of authority; I am an Anarchist, and if for this you condemn me, I stand ready to receive your condemnation.”
Voltairine de Cleyre, Exquisite Rebel: The Essays of Voltairine de Cleyre -- Anarchist, Feminist, Genius

Georges Perec
“Question your tea spoons.”
Georges Perec, Species of Spaces and Other Pieces

Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

Virginia Woolf
“Orlando naturally loved solitary places, vast views, and to feel himself for ever and ever and ever alone.”
