More of Lauren's books…
W. Somerset Maugham
“Impropriety is the soul of wit.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence

Vladimir Nabokov
“The pale organisms of literary heroes feeding under the author's supervision swell gradually with the reader's lifeblood; so that the genius of a writer consists in giving them the faculty to adapt themselves to that - not very appetizing - food and thrive on it, sometimes for centuries.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Despair

Maurice Merleau-Ponty
“The body is our general medium for having a world.”
Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception

John Milton
“The mind is its own place, and in it self can make a heaven of hell, a hell of a heaven”
John Milton, Paradise Lost

Glen Duncan
“Literature is humanity's broad-minded alter-ego, with room in its heart for monsters, even for you. It's humanity without the judgement.”
Glen Duncan, Talulla Rising
