“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations.”
Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance
