W. Somerset Maugham
“I was examined yesterday,' he remarked at last. 'It was worth while undergoing the gêne of it to know that one was perfectly fit.'
Philip noticed that he still used a French word in an affected way when an English one would have served.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

Jonathan Safran Foer
“The mistakes I've made are dead to me. But I can't take back the things I never did.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Jonathan Safran Foer
“It feels like a moment I've lived a thousand times before, as if everything is familiar, right up to the moment of my death, that it will happen again an infinite number of times, that we will meet, marry, have our children, succeed in the ways we have, fail in the ways we have, all exactly the same, always unable to change a thing. I am again at the bottom of an unstoppable wheel, and when I feel my eyes close for death, as they have and will a thousand times, I awake.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

W. Somerset Maugham
“Philip himself asked desperately what was the use of living at all. It all seemed inane. It was the same with Cronshaw: it was quite unimportant that he had lived; he was dead and forgotten; his life seemed to have served nothing except to give a pushing journalist occasion to write an article in a review. And Philip cried out in his soul:

'What is the use of it?'

The effort was so incommensurate with the result. The bright hopes of youth had to be paid for at such a bitter price of disillusionment. Pain and disease and unhappiness weighed down the scale so heavily. What did it all mean? He thought of his own life, the high hopes with which he had entered upon it, the limitations which his body forced upon him, his friendlessness, and the lack of affection which had surrounded his youth. He did not know that he had ever done anything but what seemed best to do, and what a cropper he had come! Other men, with no more advantages than he, succeeded, and others again, with many more, failed. It seemed pure chance. The rain fell alike upon the just and upon the unjust, and for nothing was there a why and a wherefore.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

Chuck Palahniuk
“On a large enough time line, the survival rate for everyone will drop to zero.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
