Ann Patchett
“Never be so focused on what you're looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.”
Ann Patchett, State of Wonder

Alice Hoffman
“Yet I knew that a life spent inside a museum is not a life like any other. Sometimes I had dreams in which the jars broke and the floor was awash with a murky green mixture of water and salt and formaldehyde. When I woke from such nightmares, the hem of my nightgown would be soaking wet. It made me wonder how far the waking world was from the world of dreams.”
Alice Hoffman, The Museum of Extraordinary Things

Tom Waits
“The world is a hellish place, and bad writing is destroying the quality of our suffering.”
Tom Waits

Ann Patchett
“In this life we love who we love. There were some stories in which facts were very nearly irrelevant.”
Ann Patchett, State of Wonder

“It’s not finding what’s lost, it’s understanding what you’ve found.”
