Thomas Wolfe
“O lost,
And by the wind grieved,
Ghost,
Come back again.”
Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel

Joseph Conrad
“My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it is, before all, to make you see.”
Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim

Willa Cather
“I have sometimes thought that his bursts of imaginative talk were fatal to his poetic gift. He squandered too much in the heat of personal communication.”
Willa Cather, My Ántonia

James Joyce
“Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

Colin McGinn
“The head spins in theoretical disarray; no explanatory model suggests itself; bizarre ontologies loom. There is a feeling of intense confusion, but no clear idea about where the confusion lies.”
Colin McGinn
