Mark Twain
“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
Mark Twain

William Shakespeare
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
William Shakespeare, As You Like It

David Foster Wallace
“I have filled 3 Mead notebooks trying to figure out whether it was Them or Just Me.”
David Foster Wallace, A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols, Or, How to Philosophize With the Hammer

Anne Lamott
“Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It's like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can't stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
