Junot Díaz
“It's never the changes we want that change everything.”
Junot Díaz, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Junot Díaz
“Beli at thirteen believed in love like a seventy-year-old widow who's been abandoned by family, husband, children and fortune believes in God.”
Junot Díaz, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Junot Díaz
“For Oscar, high school was the equivalent of a medieval spectacle, like being put in the stocks and forced to endure the peltings and outrages of a mob of deranged half-wits, an experience from which he supposed he should have emerged a better person, but that’s not really what happened—and if there were any lessons to be gleaned from the ordeal of those years he never quite figured out what they were. He walked into school every day like the fat lonely nerdy kid he was, and all he could think about was the day of his manumission, when he would at last be set free from its unending horror. Hey, Oscar, are there faggots on Mars?—Hey, Kazoo, catch this. The first time he heard the term moronic inferno he know exactly where it was located and who were its inhabitants.”
Junot Díaz, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Coco Chanel
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”
Coco Chanel

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
