Iris Murdoch
“Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.”
Iris Murdoch, Existentialists and Mystics Writings on Philosophy and Literature

Patrick O'Brian
“But you know as well as I, patriotism is a word; and one that generally comes to mean either my country, right or wrong, which is infamous, or my country is always right, which is imbecile.”
Patrick O'Brian, Master and Commander

Michael Moorcock
“What happened to fantasy for me is what also happened to rock and roll. It found a common denominator for making maximum money. As a result, it lost its tensions, its anger, its edginess and turned into one big cup of cocoa.”
Michael Moorcock

Nikos Kazantzakis
“This is true happiness: to have no ambition and to work like a horse as if you had every ambition. To live far from men, not to need them and yet to love them. To have the stars above, the land to your left and the sea to your right and to realize of a sudden that in your heart, life has accomplished its final miracle: it has become a fairy tale.”
Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Bret Easton Ellis
“The better you look, the more you see.”
Bret Easton Ellis, Glamorama
