William Faulkner
“. . .in August in Mississippi there’s a few days somewhere about the middle of the month when suddenly there’s a foretaste of fall, it’s cool, there’s a lambence, a soft, a luminous quality to the light, as though it came not from just today but from back in the old classic times. It might have fauns and satyrs and the gods and---from Greece, from Olympus in it somewhere. It lasts just for a day or two, then it’s gone. . .the title reminded me of that time, of a luminosity older than our Christian civilization.”
William Faulkner, Light in August

David Foster Wallace
“Scenery is here. Wish you were beautiful.”
David Foster Wallace, Girl With Curious Hair

Walter Scott
“The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonored , and unsung.
Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)”
Walter Scott

William Gaddis
“Merry Christmas! the man threatened.”
William Gaddis, The Recognitions

Walter Scott
“My hope, my heaven, my trust must be,
My gentle guide, in following thee.”
Walter Scott, The Lady of the Lake
