Frederick Douglass
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
Frederick Douglass

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“In her final years she would still recall the trip that, with the perverse lucidity of nostalgia, became more and more recent in her memory.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Jasper Fforde
“Have you ever wondered how nostalgia isn"t what it used to be?”
Jasper Fforde, First Among Sequels

“Advice is a form of Nostalgia”
Mary Schmich, Wear Sunscreen: A Primer for Real Life

Walker Percy
“It's one thing to develop a nostalgia for home while you're boozing with Yankee writers in Martha's Vineyard or being chased by the bulls in Pamplona. It's something else to go home and visit with the folks in Reed's drugstore on the square and actually listen to them. The reason you can't go home again is not because the down-home folks are mad at you--they're not, don't flatter yourself, they couldn't care less--but because once you're in orbit and you return to Reed's drugstore on the square, you can stand no more than fifteen minutes of the conversation before you head for the woods, head for the liquor store, or head back to Martha's Vineyard, where at least you can put a tolerable and saving distance between you and home. Home may be where the heart is but it's no place to spend Wednesday afternoon.”
Walker Percy, Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book
