Jonathan Safran Foer
“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

Michael Chabon
“He had no idea of how long his life would one day seem to have gone on; how daily present the absence of love would come to feel.

“Just watch me,” he said.”
Michael Chabon, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

Jonathan Safran Foer
“And here I am, instead of there. I'm sitting in this library, thousands of miles from my life, writing another letter I know I won't be able to send, no matter how hard I try and how much I want to. How did that boy making love behind that shed become this man writing this letter at this table?”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Jorge Luis Borges
“Personally, I am a hedonistic reader; I have never read a book merely because it was ancient. I read books for the aesthetic emotions they offer me, and I ignore the commentaries and criticism.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Seven Nights

Michael Chabon
“Literature, like magic, has always been about the handling of secrets, about the pain, the destruction, and the marvelous liberation that can result when they are revealed. Telling the truth when the truth matters most is almost always a frightening prospect. If a writer doesn't give away secrets, his own or those of the people he loves; if she doesn't court disapproval, reproach, and general wrath, whether of friends, family, or party apparatchiks; if the writer submits his work to an internal censor long before anyone else can get their hands on it, the result is pallid, inanimate, a lump of earth.”
Michael Chabon, Maps and Legends: Reading and Writing Along the Borderlands
