The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
“In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.”

“Because that was the problem, really, wasn’t it, with being human? You couldn’t just be, couldn’t just live and exist without dragging your feet through the mud. You had to communicate, congregate, collaborate, cohabiate. You had to corroborate. Copulate. You had to co-this, co-that, co—bloody-everything, and if you weren’t co-operating you were operating with the co, which was a declaration less of independence than of relativity. You could only really exist in relation to others.”
Deborah Copaken Kogan

Susanna Clarke
“Ha!' said the tall man drily. 'He was in high luck. Rich old uncles who die are in shockingly short supply.”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Alan Moore
“Also, please don’t think I’ve forgotten about your outstanding service record, or about all the invaluable contributions that you’ve made to the company. Fire, the wheel, agriculture..It’s an impressive list, old timer. A jolly impressive list. Don’t get me wrong.

But well...to be frank, we’ve had our problems , too. There’s no getting away from it. Do you know what I think? A lot of it stems from? I’ll tell you…

It’s your basic unwillingness to get on with the company. You don’t seem to want to face up to any real responsibility, or to be your own boss. Lord knows you’ve been given plenty of opportunities. We’ve offered you promotion time and time again, and each time you’ve turned us down…

To be frank, you’re not really trying are you?”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

Evelyn Waugh
“I had been there before; I knew all about it.”
Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

John Galsworthy
“The beginnings and endings of all human undertakings are untidy.”
John Galsworthy
