Stella Gibbons
“One of the disadvantages of almost universal education was the fact that all kinds of persons acquired a familiarity with one's favourite writers. It gave one a curious feeling; it was like seeing a drunken stranger wrapped in one's dressing gown.”
Stella Gibbons, Cold Comfort Farm

Leo Tolstoy
“Stepan Arkadyich smiled. He knew so well this feeling of Levin's, knew that for him all the girls in the world were divided into two sorts: one sort was all the girls in the world except her, and these girls had all human weaknesses and were very ordinary girls; the other sort was her alone, with no weaknesses and higher than everything human.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

P.G. Wodehouse
“I've found, as a general rule of life, that the things you think are going to be the scaliest nearly always turn out not so bad after all.”
P.G. Wodehouse, The Inimitable Jeeves

Herman Melville
“Ah, happiness courts the light so we deem the world is gay. But misery hides aloof so we deem that misery there is none.”
Herman Melville, Bartleby, the Scrivener

Herman Melville
“Human madness is oftentimes a cunning and most feline thing. When you think it fled, it may have but become transfigured into some still subtler form.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale
