Elizabeth Strout
“He looked at the books, and she wanted to say, 'Stop that,' as though he were reading her diary.”
Elizabeth Strout, Olive Kitteridge

Martin Amis
“So I am lonely, but not alone, like everybody else.”
Martin Amis, Time's Arrow

Russell Banks
“Lists of books we re-read and books we can't finish tell more about us than about the relative worth of the books themselves”
Russell Banks

Charlotte Brontë
“Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer, and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”
Charlotte Brontë
