Geoff Dyer
“The perfect life, the perfect lie, I realised after Christmas, is one which prevents you from doing that which you would ideally have done (painted, say, or written unpublishable poetry) but which, in fact, you have no wish to do. People need to feel that they have been thwarted by circumstances from pursuing the life which, had they led it, they would not have wanted; whereas the life they really want is precisely a compound of all those thwarting circumstances.”
Geoff Dyer

Annie Dillard
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Jane Austen
“I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.”
Jane Austen, Jane Austen's Letters

Amy Hempel
“Since his mother died I have seen him steam a cucumber thinking it was zucchini. That's the kind of thing that turns my heart right over.”
Amy Hempel

Geoff Dyer
“To be interested in something is to be involved in what is essentially a stressful relationship with that thing, to suffer anxiety on its behalf.”
Geoff Dyer, Out of Sheer Rage: Wrestling With D.H. Lawrence
