Dorothy Parker
“I might repeat to myself, slowly and soothingly, a list of quotations beautiful from minds profound; if I can remember any of the damn things.”
Dorothy Parker, Here Lies: The Collected Stories of Dorothy Parker

Iris Murdoch
“Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one's luck.”
Iris Murdoch

Martin Amis
“I gestured at my litre of fizzy red wine. “Want a drop of this?” I asked him.
No thanks. I try not to drink at lunchtime.”
So do I. But I never quite make it.”
I feel like shit all day if I drink at lunchtime.”
Me too. But I feel like shit all lunchtime if I don’t.”
Yes, well it all comes down to choices, doesn’t it?” he said. “It’s the same in the evenings. Do you want to feel good at night or do you want to feel good in the morning? It’s the same with life. Do you want to feel good young or do you want to feel good old? One or the other, not both.”
Isn’t it a tragedy?”
Martin Amis, Money

Martin Amis
“Probably all writers are at some point briefly under the impression that they are in the forefront of disintegration and chaos, that they are among the first to live and work after things fall apart. ”
Martin Amis, The Moronic Inferno and Other Visits to America

Dorothy Parker
“Authors and actors and artists and such - Never know nothing, and never know much.”
Dorothy Parker
