George Eliot
“Blameless people are always the most exasperating.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

May Sarton
“Keep busy with survival. Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember nothing stays the same for long, not even pain. Sit it out. Let it all pass. Let it go.”
May Sarton

Rebecca Lee
“What an idea--that with a few words you could catch another person in a little grammatical clutch, arrange the objects of the world such that they bordered the two of you.”
Rebecca Lee, Bobcat and Other Stories

Rebecca Lee
“Earlier that day I had found a sheet of paper on which Min’s grandmother had written her definition of the “superior woman.” At the top of the page is said, “Formula for Woman, According to Dignity.” The formula was “Has excellent posture, which is two-thirds contentment and one-third desire."
At first I thought this a bit arbitrary. But all day the idea had been passing through my mind like a mantra. I began to think, in this strange place—half kingdom, half city—that the grandmother’s formula caught the entire world in its tiny palm. Two-thirds contentment, one-third desire. Of course, I thought, as I spiraled my way through the trees to Asia Foodstore, that is the composition of the world.”
Rebecca Lee, Bobcat and Other Stories

Colette
“I went to collect the few personal belongings which...I held to be invaluable: my cat, my resolve to travel, and my solitude.”
Colette
