Dylan Thomas
“...Time held me green and dying
Though I sang in my chains like the sea.”
Dylan Thomas, Fern Hill

William S. Burroughs
“As a young child I wanted to be a writer because writers were rich and famous. They lounged around Singapore and Rangoon smoking opium in a yellow pongee silk suit. They sniffed cocaine in Mayfair and they penetrated forbidden swamps with a faithful native boy and lived in the native quarter of Tangier smoking hashish and languidly caressing a pet gazelle.”
William S. Burroughs, The Adding Machine: Selected Essays

Daphne du Maurier
“Happiness is not a possession to be prized, it is a quality of thought, a state of mind.”
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

Emily Brontë
“I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free... Why am I so changed? I'm sure I should be myself were I once among the heather on those hills.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Dylan Thomas
“An alcoholic is someone you don't like, who drinks as much as you do.”
Dylan Thomas
