Listened from Audible.com

Some audiobooks feel like they are missing the richness of the text, since the words are just flying by, whether I as listener am fully engaged or not.

"Hill House" never lets you forget *anything*.

Jackson's slow-burn version

Simone Weil
“Imaginary evil is romantic and varied; real evil is gloomy, monotonous, barren, boring. Imaginary good is boring; real good is always new, marvelous, intoxicating.”
Simone Weil

Flannery O'Connor
“The Catholic novelist in the South will see many distorted images of Christ, but he will certainly feel that a distorted image of Christ is better than no image at all. I think he will feel a good deal more kinship with backwoods prophets and shouting fundamentalists than he will with those politer elements for whom the supernatural is an embarrassment and for whom religion has become a department of sociology or culture or personality development.”
Flannery O'Connor

Neil Gaiman
“I don't want whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted just like that, and it didn't mean anything? What then?”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
