E.E. Cummings
“I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
Alive
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness”
E.E. Cummings, Poems, 1923-1954

Robert Bringhurst
“By all means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and well.”
Robert Bringhurst, The Elements of Typographic Style

Donna Tartt
“When we are sad—at least I am like this—it can be comforting to cling to familiar objects, to the things that don't change. Your descriptions of the desert—that oceanic, endless glare—are terrible but also very beautiful. Maybe there's something to be said for the rawness and emptiness of it all. The light of long ago is different from the light of today and yet here, in this house, I'm reminded of the past at every turn. But when I think of you, it's as if you've gone away to sea on a ship—out in a foreign brightness where there are no paths, only stars and sky.”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Donna Tartt
“Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Anthony Marra
“Life: a constellation of vital phenomena—organization, irritability, movement, growth, reproduction, adaptation.”
Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena
