Theodore Dreiser
“How true it is that words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean. Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes.”
Theodore Dreiser, Sister Carrie

John Irving
“Never confuse faith, or belief—of any kind—with something even remotely intellectual.”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

Jonathan Safran Foer
“We are being very nomadic with the truth, yes?”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Betty  Smith
“The tree man eulogized them by screaming, 'And now get the hell out of here with your tree, you lousy bastards.'

Francie had heard swearing since she had heard words. Obscenity and profanity had no meaning as such among those people. They were emotional expressions of inarticulate people with small vocabularies; they made a kind of dialect. The phrases could mean many things according to the expression and tone used in saying them. So now, when Francie heard themselves called lousy bastards, she smiled tremulously at the kind man. She knew that he was really saying, 'Good-bye--God bless you.”
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Ann Aguirre
“They say an interesting life leaves its mark on your face, and if that’s true,
she’s got one hell of a story.”
Ann Aguirre, Grimspace
