Neil Gaiman
“I went away in my head, into a book. That was where I went whenever real life was too hard or too inflexible.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Neil Gaiman
“Grown-ups don't look like grown-ups on the inside either. Outside, they're big and thoughtless and they always know what they're doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. Truth is, there aren't any grown-ups. Not one, in the whole wide world.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Neil Gaiman
“It doesn't matter that I can't remember the details any longer: death happened to her. Death happens to all of us.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Irwin Shaw
“There are too many books I haven’t read, too many places I haven’t seen, too many memories I haven’t kept long enough.”
Irwin Shaw

Tim O'Brien
“They carried the sky. The whole atmosphere, they carried it, the humidity, the monsoons, the stink of fungus and decay, all of it, they carried gravity.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried
