John Cheever
“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
John Cheever

John Irving
“They were involved in that awkward procedure of getting to unknow each other.”
John Irving, The World According to Garp

Julian Barnes
“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

Herta Müller
“I'm always telling myself I don't have many feelings. Even when something does affect me I'm only moderately moved. I almost never cry. It's not that I'm stronger than the ones with teary eyes, I'm weaker. They have courage. When all you are is skin and bones, feelings are a brave thing. I'm more of a coward. The difference is minimal though, I just use my strength not to cry. When I do allow myself a feeling, I take the part that hurts and bandage it up with a story that doesn't cry, that doesn't dwell on homesickness.”
Herta Müller, The Hunger Angel

Seán O'Casey
“When it was dark, you always carried the sun in your hand for me.”
Seán O'Casey, Three More Plays: The Silver Tassie, Purple Dust, Red Roses For Me
