Smile Please by Jean Rhys
“I would never be part of anything. I would never really belong anywhere, and I knew it, and all my life would be the same, trying to belong, and failing. Always something would go wrong. I am a stranger and I always will be, and after all I didn’t really care.”
Jean Rhys

The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1 by Anaïs Nin
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”
Anaïs Nin

Jean Rhys
“My life, which seems so simple and monotonous, is really a complicated affair of cafés where they like me and cafés where they don't, streets that are friendly, streets that aren't, rooms where I might be happy, rooms where I shall never be, looking-glasses I look nice in, looking-glasses I don't, dresses that will be lucky, dresses that won't, and so on.”
Jean Rhys, Good Morning, Midnight

“The questions I would have liked to ask people were: ‘Are you in love? What are you reading?”
Françoise Sagan, A Certain Smile

“Strange children should smile at each other and say, "Let's play.”

Simone de Beauvoir
“When I was a child, when I was an adolescent, books saved me from despair: that convinced me that culture was the highest of values[...].”
