China Miéville
“My Google-fu is strong.”
China Miéville, Kraken

Lewis Carroll
“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”
Lewis Carroll

Gene Wolfe
“I have never had much need for companionship, unless it was the companionship of someone I could call a friend. Certainly I have seldom wished the conversation of strangers or the sight of strange faces. I believe rather that when I was alone I felt I had in some fashion lost my individuality; to the thrush and the rabbit I had been not Severian, but Man. The many people who like to be utterly alone, and particularly to be utterly alone in a wilderness, do so, I believe, because they enjoy playing that part. But I wanted to be a particular person again, and so I sought the mirror of other persons, which would show me that I was not as they were.”
Gene Wolfe, The Sword of the Lictor

Nikos Kazantzakis
“I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.”
Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Winston S. Churchill
“Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”
Winston S. Churchill
