Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
“I'm talking about these people who've ended up in one life instead of another and they are just so disappointed. Do you know what I mean? They've done what's expected of them. They want to do something different but it's impossible now, there's a mortgage, kids, whatever, they're trapped...”

Richard Yates
“And do you know a funny thing? I'm almost fifty years old and I've never understood anything in my whole life.”
Richard Yates, The Easter Parade

Betty  Smith
“But oh, how wonderful, he thought, if everything you talked about could come true!”
Betty Smith

Aldous Huxley
“As if one believed anything by instinct! One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them. Finding bad reasons for what one believes for other bad reasons—that's philosophy. People believe in God because they've been conditioned to believe in God.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Walker Percy
“Where there is chance of gain, there is also chance of loss. Whenever one courts great happiness, one also risks malaise.”
Walker Percy, The Moviegoer

Thomas Pynchon
“For a moment she'd wondered if the seal around her sockets were tight enough to allow the tears simply to go on and fill up the entire lens space and never dry. She could carry the sadness of the moment with her that way forever, see the world refracted through those tears, those specific tears, as if indices as yet unfound varied in important ways from cry to cry.”
Thomas Pynchon, The Crying of Lot 49
