Arundhati Roy
“...the secret of the Great Stories is that they have no secrets. The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They don’t deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They don’t surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your lover’s skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you don’t. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you won’t. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesn’t. And yet you want to know again.

That is their mystery and their magic.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

Yann Martel
“Hindus, in their capacity for love, are indeed hairless Christians, just as Muslims, in the way they see God in everything, are bearded Hindus, and Christians, in their devotion to God, are hat wearing Muslims.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

George Orwell
“We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness.”
George Orwell, 1984

George Orwell
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell, 1984

Paulo Coelho
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
