Oscar Wilde
“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”
Oscar Wilde

Wendell Berry
“As I understand it, I am being paid only for my work in arranging the words; my property is that arrangement. The thoughts in this book, on the contrary, are not mine. They came freely to me, and I give them freely away. I have no "intellectual property," and I think that all claimants to such property are theives.”
Wendell Berry, Sex, Economy, Freedom, and Community: Eight Essays

Saul Bellow
“I am an American, Chicago born – Chicago, that somber city – and go at things as I have taught myself, free-style, and will make the record in my own way: first to knock, first admitted; sometimes an innocent knock, sometimes a not so innocent. But a man's character is his fate, says Heraclitus, and in the end there isn't any way to disguise the nature of the knocks by acoustical work on the door or gloving the knuckles.”
Saul Bellow, The Adventures of Augie March

Dorothy Parker
“Heterosexuality is not normal, it's just common.”
Dorothy Parker

Knut Hamsun
“Keep it, keep it!" I answered. "You are very welcome to it! It is only a couple of small things, doesn't amount to anything—about everything I own in the world.”
Knut Hamsun, Hunger
