Sebastian Barry
“The terror and hurt in my story happened because when I was young I thought others were the authors of my fortune or misfortune; I did not know that a person could hold up a wall made of imaginary bricks and mortar against the horrors and cruel, dark tricks of time that assail us, and be the author therefore of themselves.”
Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture

Ruth Ozeki
“Am I crazy?" she asked. "I feel like I am sometimes."
"Maybe," he said, rubbing her forehead. "But don't worry about it. You need to be a little bit crazy. Crazy is the price you pay for having an imagination. It's your superpower. Tapping into the dream. It's a good thing not a bad thing.”
Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being

Clarice Lispector
“Who has not asked himself at some time or other: am I a monster or is this what it means to be a person?”
Clarice Lispector, A Hora Da Estrela

Ōgai Mori
“An obstacle which would frighten discreet men is nothing to determined women. They dare what men avoid, and sometimes they achieve an unusual success.”
Ōgai Mori, The Wild Geese

Sebastian Barry
“I wanted to listen to him, but I did not want to answer now. That strange responsibility we feel towards others when they speak, to offer them the solace of any answer. Poor humans! And anyway he had not asked a question. He was merely floating there in the room, insubstantial, a living man in the midst of life, dying imperceptibly on his feet, like all of us.”
Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture
