David Sedaris
“Every day we're told that we live in the greatest country on earth.

David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

Markus Zusak
“Competence was attractive.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Seán O'Casey
“When it was dark, you always carried the sun in your hand for me.”
Seán O'Casey, Three More Plays: The Silver Tassie, Purple Dust, Red Roses For Me

“The world was made up of people putting one foot in front of the other; and a life might appear ordinary simply because the person living it had been doing so for a long time.”
Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
