Miguel de Cervantes
“he did not think about any promises his master had made to him, and he did not consider it work but sheer pleasure to go around seeking adventures, no matter how dangerous they might be.”
Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

Leo Tolstoy
“Imagine a flock of pigeons in a corn field. Imagine that ninety-nine of them, instead of pecking the corn they need and using it as they need it, start to collect all they can into one big heap. Imagine that they do not leave much corn for themselves, but save this big heap of corn on behalf of the vilest and worst in their flock. Imagine that they all sit in a circle and watch this one pigeon, who squanders and wastes this wealth. And then imagine that they rush at a weak pigeon who is the most hungry among them who darest to take one grain from the heap without permission, and they punish him. If you can imagine this, then you can understand the day-to-day behavior of mankind. —WILLIAM PALEY”
Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom: Daily Thoughts to Nourish the Soul, Written and Se

Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen
“You’re a literary person. If you ask me, there are passages in the Bible that a lover of literature has to appreciate, even if they have no interest in religious matters. The Book of Job, for example. A great mystery, and full of wonderful metaphors. None of this purple prose.”
Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, The Rabbit Back Literature Society

Greg Carlisle
“Wallace’s philosophy in The Pale King (TPK 546) is that we can ride out waves of boredom and oblivion into bliss and conscious (re)discovery, like another pioneer. With respect to Wallace’s fiction, as Don DeLillo said, “There is always another reader to regenerate these words” (DeLillo, Legacy 24).”
Greg Carlisle, Nature's Nightmare: Analyzing David Foster Wallace's Oblivion

Jocelyn K. Glei
“Frank Lloyd Wright insisted that constraints historically have resulted in a flowering of the imagination: “The human race built most nobly when limitations were greatest and, therefore, when most was required of imagination in order to build at all.”
Jocelyn K. Glei, Manage Your Day-To-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
