Silver Screen Fiend by Patton Oswalt
"Less about Oswalt's film addiction and more about his relationship to the art and entertainment industries he's become so intertwined with, set against his burgeoning cinephilia. Insightful, sweet, hilarious, and mature, it's a beautiful look at h..." Read more of this review »

Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
“[T]he truth is that fullness of soul can sometimes overflow in utter vapidity of language, for none of us can ever express the exact measure of his needs or his thoughts or his sorrows; and human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars.”

“Never touch your idols: the gilding will stick to your fingers."

(Il ne faut pas toucher aux idoles: la dorure en reste aux mains.)
Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“wisdom comes to us when it can no longer do any good.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Barbara Kingsolver
“Pain reaches the heart with electrical speed, but truth moves to the heart as slowly as a glacier.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Aldous Huxley
“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
Aldous Huxley, Complete Essays 2, 1926-29

Boris Pasternak
“A conscious attempt to fall asleep is sure to produce insomnia, to try to be conscious of one's own digestion is a sure way to upset the stomach. Consciousness is a poison when we apply it to ourselves. Consciousness is a light directed outward. It's like the headlights on a locomotive—turn them inward and you'd have a crash.”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
