Jeffrey Eugenides
“Biology gives you a brain. Life turns it into a mind.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

Steve Toltz
“The game is an analogy for life: there are not enough chairs or good times to go around, not enough food, not enough joy, nor beds nor jobs nor laughs nor friends nor smiles nor money nor clean air to breathe...and yet the music goes on.”
Steve Toltz, A Fraction of the Whole

Lloyd Jones
“You cannot pretend to read a book. Your eyes will give you away. So will your breathing. A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is in flames.”
Lloyd Jones

Lloyd Jones
“I had found a new friend. The surprising thing is where I’d found him – not up a tree or sulking in the shade, or splashing around in one of the hill streams, but in a book. No one had told us kids to look there for a friend. Or that you could slip inside the skin of another. Or travel to another place with marshes, and where, to our ears, the bad people spoke like pirates. ”
Lloyd Jones, Mister Pip

“Men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.”
Lloyd Jones
