“We are not quite novels.
We are not quite short stories.
In the end, we are collected works.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

“We're all just in the muck trying to believe we're capable of greatness, but closer to breaking than we want to admit. And we tell ourselves stories--about ourselves,but maybe also all these stories about other people, about characters--as a way to hide from how small we are.”
Doug Dorst, S.

Henry Miller
“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition.”
