Julia Kristeva
“Naming suffering, exalting it, dissecting it into its smallest components – that is doubtless a way to curb mourning.”
Julia Kristeva, Black Sun: Depression and Melancholia

Toni Morrison
“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

Edna Ferber
“For equipment she had youth, curiosity, a steel strong frame...four hundred ninety-seven dollars; and a gay adventuresome spirit that was never to die, though it led her into curious places and she often found, at the end, only a trackless waste from which she had to retrace her steps, painfully. But always, to her, red and green cabbages were to be jade and Burgundy, crysoprase and porphyry. Life has no weapons against a woman like that.”
Edna Ferber, So Big

George Orwell
“It is curious how people take it for granted that they have a right to preach at you and pray over you as soon as your income falls below a certain level.”
George Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“Most enjoyable activities are not natural; they demand an effort that initially one is reluctant to make. But once the interaction starts to provide feedback to the person's skills, it usually begins to be intrinsically rewarding.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
