This was a book about books, and I appreciated reading it. The main character is a literature-loving introvert, and I appreciated that too. But I never connected with the book's rambling style - it's a lot like taking a college course with the most e ...more

Umberto Eco
“But it has often happened that I have found the most seductive depictions of sin in the pages of those very men of incorruptible virtue who condemned their spell and their effects.”
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

Catherynne M. Valente
“Your love is a terrible thing," November says. "It sits heavy. It stings. It cuts."

She shrugs. "I am Casimira."

"I don't know if I can bear it."

"I would not have chosen you if you could not. You will get stronger. You will grow calluses.”
Catherynne M. Valente, Palimpsest

Sheri Holman
“Good and Evil are opposite points on a circle, Dr. Chiver. Greater good is just halfway back to Bad.”
Sheri Holman, The Dress Lodger

Catherynne M. Valente
“She often felt that she chased the ideal cup of coffee in her mind from table to table, the rich, thick, creamy coffee, spicy, bittersweet, that betrayed no hint of thinness or chemical flavoring, nothing less than total, fathomless devotion to the state of being itself. Every morning she pulled a delicate cup from its brass hook and filled it, hoping that it would be dark and deep and secret as a forest, and each morning it cooled too fast, had too much milk, stained the cup, made her nervous.”
Catherynne M. Valente, Palimpsest

Walter M. Miller Jr.
“Now a Dark Age seemed to be passing. For twelve centuries, a small flame of knowledge had been kept smoldering in the monasteries; only now were there minds ready to be kindled. Long ago, during the last age of reason, certain proud thinkers had claimed that valid knowledge was indestructible—that ideas were deathless and truth immortal. But that was true only in the subtlest sense, the abbot thought, and not superficially true at all. There was objective meaning in the world, to be sure: the nonmoral logos or design of the Creator; but such meanings were God's and not Man's, until they found an imperfect incarnation, a dark reflection, within the mind and speech and culture of a given human society, which might ascribe values to the meanings so that they became valid in a human sense within the culture. For Man was a culture-bearer as well as a soul-bearer, but his cultures were not immortal and they could die with a race or an age, and then human reflections of meaning and human portrayals of truth receded, and truth and meaning resided, unseen, only in the objective logos of Nature and the ineffable Logos of God. Truth could be crucified; but soon, perhaps, a resurrection.”
Walter M. Miller Jr., A Canticle for Leibowitz
