Annie Proulx
“You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music.”
Annie Proulx

Alice Walker
“When the ax came into the forest the trees said the handle is one of us.”
Alice Walker

John Irving
“If you care about something you have to protect it – If you’re lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

John Irving
“If you are careful,' Garp wrote, 'if you use good ingredients, and you don't take any shortcuts, then you can usually cook something very good. Sometimes it is the only worthwhile product you can salvage from a day; what you make to eat. With writing, I find, you can have all the right ingredients, give plenty of time and care, and still get nothing. Also true of love. Cooking, therefore, can keep a person who tries hard sane.”
John Irving, The World According to Garp
