Håkan Nesser
“We are closer to the end of the world than to that minute that has just passed by, because that is lost forever.”
Håkan Nesser, Mind's Eye

Haruki Murakami
“The sad truth is that certain types of things can't go backward. Once they start going forward, no matter what you do, they can't go back the way they were. If even one little thing goes awry, then that's how it will stay forever.”
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

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

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
