Michelle liked a quote
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
“Nothing's ever the same," she said. "Be it a second later or a hundred years. It's always churning and roiling. And people change as much as oceans.”
Neil Gaiman

Jonathan Franzen
“This wasn't the person he'd thought he was, or would have chosen to be if he'd been free to choose, but there was something comforting and liberating about being an actual definite someone, rather than a collection of contradictory potential someones.”
Jonathan Franzen, Freedom

Jonathan Franzen
“I admire your capacity for admiring.”
Jonathan Franzen, Freedom

A.M. Homes
“She lies on the stripped bed, looking up at the pinhole in the roof. The sky is blue. Clouds pass over. Sky, air, clouds, the sun and moon; it's fine. It's the same as it ever was. She stares at the small spot of blue. She sleeps. She dreams. She wakes up feeling a little more and a little less like herself.”
A.M. Homes

Jonathan Franzen
“Each new thing he encountered in life impelled him in a direction that fully convinced him of its rightness, but then the next new thing loomed up and impelled him in the opposite direction, which also felt right. There was no controlling narrative: he seemed to himself a purely reactive pinball in a game whose only object was to stay alive for staying alive's sake.”
Jonathan Franzen, Freedom

Thomas Pynchon
“You can only cruise the boulevards of regret so far, and then you've got to get back up onto the freeway again.”
Thomas Pynchon, Inherent Vice
