"I think I'm going to like this. I needed a cute, fairytale-esque story." May 03, 2014 06:25AM

John Boyne
“There's things that happen in a person's life that are so scorched in the memory and burned into the heart that there's no forgetting them.”
John Boyne

Anna Deavere Smith
“Each person has a literature inside them.”
Anna Deavere Smith

Elaine May
“You know how sometimes you lie in bed at night and think, “What if the law of gravity just wears out and lets go and I drift into space?” Does that ever make you anxious?”
Elaine May

Melina Marchetta
“And when Finnikin grabbed her to him and buried his face in her neck and then bent down and placed his mouth on hers, the others pretended that there was something very interesting happening in the meadow. The priest-king even pointed at the nothing they were pretending to see. But Froi didn’t. He just watched the way Finnikin’s hands rested on Evanjalin’s neck and he rubbed his thumb along her jaw and the way his tongue seemed to disappear inside her mouth as if he needed a part of her to breathe himself. And Froi wondered what Evanjalin was saying against Finnikin’s lips when they stopped because whatever the words were it made them start all over again and this time their hunger for each other was so frightening to watch that it made Froi look away.”
Melina Marchetta, Finnikin of the Rock

Kazuo Ishiguro
“It had never occurred to me that our lives, which had been so closely interwoven, could unravel with such speed. If I’d known, maybe I’d have kept tighter hold of them, and not let unseen tides pull us apart.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go
