Halldór Laxness
“He continued on, on to the glacier, towards the dawn, from ridge to ridge, in deep, new-fallen snow, paying no heed to the storms that might pursue him. As a child he had stood by the seashore at Ljósavík and watched the waves soughing in and out, but now he was heading away from the sea. "Think of me when you are in glorious sunshine."

Halldór Laxness, World Light

Mikhail Lermontov
“In the first place, [his eyes] never laughed when he laughed. Have you ever noticed this peculiarity some people have? It is either the sign of an evil nature or of a profound and lasting sorrow. ”
Mikhail Lermontov, Un Héros de notre temps. (précédé de) La Princesse Ligovskoï

Daphne du Maurier
“But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.”
Daphne du Maurier

José Manuel Caballero Bonald
“- ¿Qué, se dio bien la noche? - preguntó la mujer. (...) - Tempranito - volvió a decir la mujer.

- Y sereno.
- Eso es lo que hay.
- ¿Cayó algo?
- Relente.”
José Manuel Caballero Bonald

“We live in forgotten Victorian knife-plunging Manchester, where everything lies wherever it was left over one hundred years ago. The safe streets are dimly lit, the others not lit at all, but both represent a danger that you’re asking for should you find yourself out there once curtains have closed for tea.”
Morrissey, Autobiography
