Nick Hornby
“Maybe we all live life at too high a pitch, those of us who absorb emotional things all day, and as mere consequence we can never feel merely content: we have to be unhappy, or ecstatically, head-over-heels happy, and those states are difficult to achieve within a stable, solid relationship.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

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

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
tags: humor

Marilynne Robinson
“Sometimes I have loved the peacefulness of an ordinary Sunday. It is like standing in a newly planted garden after a warm rain. You can feel the silent and invisible life.”
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

Margery Allingham
“I believe that an author who cannot control her characters is, like a mother who cannot control her children, not really fit to look after them.”
Margery Allingham
