The Rachel Papers by Martin Amis
“Don't I ever do anything else but take soulful walks down the Bayswater Road, I thought, as I walked soulfully down the Baywater Road.”
Martin Amis

“Sex is hard to write about because you lose the universal and succumb to the particular. We all have our different favorites. <i>Good</i> sex is impossible to write about. Lawrence and Updike have given it their all, and the result is still uneasy and unsure. It may be that good sex is something fiction just can't do--like dreams. Most of the sex in my novels is absolutely disastrous. Sex can be funny, but not very sexy.”
Martin Amis
House of Meetings by Martin Amis
“For both of us, I think, it had to do with our weakened power to love. It is strange that enslavement should have that effect – not just the fantastic degradation, not just the fear and the boredom and all the rest, but also the layered injustice, the silent injustice. So all right. We’re back where we started. To you, nothing – from you, everything. They took it from me, it seems, for no reason, other than that I value it so much.”
Martin Amis

Madeleine Albright
“I was taught to strive not because there were any guarantees of success but because the act of striving is in itself the only way to keep faith with life.”
Madeleine Albright, Madam Secretary: A Memoir

Samuel Johnson
“What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.”
Samuel Johnson, Johnsonian Miscellanies - Vol II

Martin Amis
“Love is an abstract noun, something nebulous. And yet love turns out to be the only part of us that is solid, as the world turns upside down and the screen goes black. We can't tell if it will survive us. But we can be sure that it's the last thing to go.”
Martin Amis, The Second Plane: 14 Responses to September 11

Marie Curie
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”
Marie Curie

Winston S. Churchill
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston S. Churchill, Never Give In!: The Best of Winston Churchill's Speeches
