The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Writings by Oscar Wilde
“Why can't these American women stay in their own country? They are always telling us that it is the paradise for women.

It is. That is the reason why, like Eve, they are so excessively anxious to get out of it.”
Oscar Wilde

Nicole Krauss
“Sometimes I imagine my own autopsy. Disappointment in myself: right kidney. Disappointment of others in me: left kidney. Personal failures: kishkes... When the clocks are turned back and the dark falls before I'm ready, this, for reasons I can't explain, I feel it in my wrists. And when I wake up and my fingers are stiff, almost certainly I was dreaming of my childhood... Yesterday I saw a man kicking a dog and I felt it behind my eyes. I don't know what to call this, a place before tears. The pain of forgetting: spine. The pain of remembering: spine. All the times I have suddenly realized that my parents are dead, even know, it surprises me, to exist in the world while that which made me has ceased to exist: my knees. To everything a season, to every time I've woken only to make the mistake of believing for a moment that someone was sleeping beside me: a hemorrhoid. Loneliness: there is no organ that can take it all.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

“That's what I do. Watch movies and read. Sometimes I even pretend to write, but I'm not fooling anyone. Oh, and I go to the mailbox.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

Albert Camus
“Sometimes at night I would sleep open-eyed underneath a sky dripping with stars. I was alive then.”
Albert Camus

Nicole Krauss
“What about you? Are you happiest and saddest right now that you've ever been?" "Of course I am." "Why?" "Because nothing makes me happier and nothing makes me sadder than you.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
