Neil Gaiman
“That is the nature of time. It flows faster when it was younger and the course is narrower: at the end of all things time has spread and slowed, lik oil spilled on a still pond.”
Neil Gaiman, An Invocation of Incuriosity

Tom Rachman
“Nothing, not even dictionaries, can tell you what anything means," he said. "The reality of things is just sad, for the most part.”
Tom Rachman

Tom Rachman
“Books," he said, "are like mushrooms. They grow when you are not looking. Books increase by rule of compound interest: one interest leads to another interest, and this compounds into third. Next, you have so much interest there is no space in closet.”
Tom Rachman, The Rise & Fall of Great Powers

Tom Rachman
“People kept their books, she thought, not because they were likely to read them again but because these objects contained the past--the texture of being oneself at a particular place, at a particular time, each volume a piece of one's intellect, whether the work itself had been loved or despised or had induced a snooze on page forty.”
Tom Rachman, The Rise & Fall of Great Powers

Paul Kalanithi
“At moments, the weight of it all became palpable. It was in the air, the stress and misery. Normally, you breathed it in, without noticing it.

Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air
