Thomas Pynchon
“It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home -- only the millions of last moments . . . nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.”
Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

Jonathan Safran Foer
“It has shown me that everything is illuminated in the light of the past. It is always along the side of us...on the inside, looking out.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

Thomas Pynchon
“The nights are filled with explosion and motor transport, and wind that brings them up over the downs a last smack of the sea. Day begins with a hot cup and a cigarette over a little table with a weak leg that Roger has repaired, provisionally, with brown twine. There's never much talk but touches and looks, smiles together, curses for parting. It is marginal, hungry, chilly - most times they're too paranoid to risk a fire - but it's something they want to keep, so much that to keep it they will take on more than propaganda has ever asked them for. They are in love. Fuck the war.”
Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

Thomas Pynchon
“What are the stars but points in the body of God where we insert the healing needles of our terror and longing?
--Gravity's Rainbow, V699”
Thomas Pynchon

Carson McCullers
“She wished there was some place where she could go to hum it out loud. Some kind of music was too private to sing in a house cram fall of people. It was funny, too, how lonesome a person could be in a crowded house.”
Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter
