Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

Richard Llewellyn
“I wonder is happiness only an essence of good living, that you shall taste only once or twice while you live, and then go on living with the taste in your mouth, and wishing you had the fullness of it solid between your teeth, like a good meal that you have tasted and cherished and look back in your mind to eat again.”
Richard Llewellyn, How Green Was My Valley

Meg Wolitzer
“...age sixty-eight and still wanting love to exist in a pure column of light, still convinced that it could.”
Meg Wolitzer, The Position

Willa Cather
“Life was so short that it meant nothing at all unless it were continually reinforced by something that endured; unless the shadows of individual existence came and went against a background that held together.”
Willa Cather, One of Ours
