I learned from this collection of short stories that a few things have changed since I took the AP English test in high school.

#1 Proper punctuation such as quotation marks are so last season.

Edward Rutherfurd
“I think you should weep, now. It's time.”
Edward Rutherfurd

Erich Maria Remarque
“And even if these scenes from our youth were given back to us we would hardly know what to do. The tender, secret influence that passed from them into us could not rise again. We might be amongst them and move in them; we might remember and love them and be stirred by the sight of them. But it would be like gazing at the photograph of a dead comrade; those are his features, it is his face, and the days we spent together take on a mournful life in the memory; but the man himself it is not.”
Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front

Margaret Mitchell
“Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect. We take what we get and are thankful it's no worse than it is.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

E.M. Forster
“Life' wrote a friend of mine, 'is a public performance on the violin, in which you must learn the instrument as you go along.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Robert Penn Warren
“I got an image in my head that never got out. We see a great many things and can remember a great many things, but that is different. We get very few of the true images in our heads of the kind I am talking about, the kind that become more and more vivid for us as if the passage of the years did not obscure their reality but, year by year, drew off another veil to expose a meaning which we had only dimly surmised at first. Very probably the last veil will not be removed, for there are not enough years, but the brightness of the image increases and our conviction increases that the brightness is meaning, or the legend of meaning, and without the image our lives would be nothing except an old piece of film rolled on a spool and thrown into a desk drawer among the unanswered letters.”
Robert Penn Warren, All the King's Men
