The Portable Dorothy Parker by Dorothy Parker
“I won't telephone him. I'll never telephone him again as long as I live. He'll rot in hell, before I'll call him up. You don't have to give me strength, God; I have it myself. If he wanted me, he could get me. He knows where I am. He knows I'm waiting here. He's so sure of me, so sure. I wonder why they hate you, as soon as they are sure of you.”
Dorothy Parker

“Ten watercolors were made from that star.”
Joan Didion, The White Album

Aldous Huxley
“The function of the well-intentioned individual, acting in isolation, is to formulate or disseminate theoretical truths. The function of the well-intentioned individuals in association is to live in accordance with those truths, to demonstrate what happens when theory is translated into practice, to create small-scale working models of the better form of society to which the speculative idealist looks forward.”
Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means

Joan Didion
“...the revelation that the dream was teaching the dreamers how to live.”
Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Joan Didion
“Grammar is a piano I play by ear.”
Joan Didion, Essays & Conversations

Tom Hiddleston
“I try not to make plans. God always laughs at your plans. I’m going to keep the door open, and keep the page blank, and see what gets painted upon it.”
Tom Hiddleston
