Jeanette Winterson
“People do go back, but they don't survive, because two realities are claiming them at the same time. Such things are too much. You can salt your heart, or kill your heart, or you can choose between the two realities. There is much pain here. Some people think you can have your cake and eat it. The cake goes mouldy and they choke on what's left. Going back after a long time will make you mad, because the people you left behind do not like to think of you changed, will treat you as they always did, accuse you of being indifferent, when you are only different.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Carson McCullers
“It was like she was so empty there wasn't even a feeling or thought in her.”
Carson McCullers

Dorothy Allison
“Class, race, sexuality, gender and all other categories by which we categorize and dismiss each other need to be excavated from the inside.”
Dorothy Allison

Erving Goffman
“And to the degree that the individual maintains a show before others that he himself does not believe, he can come to experience a special kind of alienation from self and a special kind of wariness of others.”
Erving Goffman, The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life

Carson McCullers
“There are the lover and the beloved, but these two come from different countries.”
Carson McCullers, The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Stories
