Alexandre Dumas
“It's necessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Tom Robbins
“It was autumn, the springtime of death. Rain spattered the rotting leaves, and a wild wind wailed. Death was singing in the shower. Death was happy to be alive. The fetus bailed out without a parachute. It landed in the sideline Astroturf, so upsetting the cheerleaders that for the remained of the afternoon their rahs were more like squeaks.”
Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker

Philip Roth
“Everybody else is working to change, persuade, tempt and control them. The best readers come to fiction to be free of all that noise.”
Philip Roth

William S. Burroughs
“Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted”
William S. Burroughs

Steven Wright
“I have an inferiority complex, but it’s not a very good one.”
Steven Wright
