D.H. Lawrence
“Things men have made with wakened hands, and put soft life into
are awake through years with transferred touch, and go on glowing
for long years.
And for this reason, some old things are lovely
warm still with the life of forgotten men who made them.”
D.H. Lawrence

James Thurber
“Quick, name some towns in New Jersey”
James Thurber

Marilynne Robinson
“I’m writing this in part to tell you that if you ever wonder what you’ve done in your life, and everyone does wonder sooner or later, you have been God’s grace to me, a miracle, something more than a miracle. You may not remember me very well at all, and it may seem to you to be no great thing to have been the good child of an old man in a shabby little town you will no doubt leave behind. If only I had the words to tell you.”
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

P.G. Wodehouse
“I suppose he must have taken about a nine or something in hats. Shows what a rotten thing it is to let your brain develop too much.”
P.G. Wodehouse, The Inimitable Jeeves

Agatha Christie
“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”
Agatha Christie
