The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver
"My wife always says I love boring books. Boring books are books where "nothing happens," but the author spends a lot of time and effort in the craft of making nothing happen. Or they can be called works of "literary fiction."

W.H. Auden
“Poetry might be defined as the clear expression of mixed feelings.”
W.H. Auden, New Year Letter

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Steve Martin
“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
Steve Martin

Cornel West
“Prophetic pragmatism attempts to keep alive the sense of alternative ways of life and of struggle based on the best of the past. In this sense, the praxis of prophetic pragmatism is tragic action with revolutionary intent, usually reformist consequences and always visionary outlook.”
Cornel West, The Cornel West Reader

Anne Lamott
“E.L. Doctorow said once said that 'Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
