The Last Survivor by Timothy W. Ryback
"There’s a giant elephant in the town of Dachau and it will not go away.

David Foster Wallace
“If you spend enough time reading or writing, you find a voice, but you also find certain tastes. You find certain writers who when they write, it makes your own brain voice like a tuning fork, and you just resonate with them. And when that happens, reading those writers—not all of whom are modern . . . I mean, if you are willing to make allowances for the way English has changed, you can go way, way back with this— becomes a source of unbelievable joy. It’s like eating candy for the soul. So probably the smart thing to say is that lucky people develop a relationship with a certain kind of art that becomes spiritual, almost religious, and doesn’t mean, you know, church stuff, but it means you’re just never the same.”
David Foster Wallace, Quack This Way

Rabih Alameddine
“I long ago abandoned myself to a blind lust for the written word. Literature is my sandbox. In it I play, build my forts and castles, spend glorious time.”
Rabih Alameddine, An Unnecessary Woman

Jean-Paul Sartre
“It's quite an undertaking to start loving somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment right at the start where you have to jump across an abyss: if you think about it you don't do it.”
Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea

W.G. Sebald
“It is thanks to my evening reading alone that I am still more or less sane.”
W.G. Sebald, Vertigo

Halldór Laxness
“For man is essentially alone, and one should pity him and love him and grieve with him.”
Halldór Laxness
