“Is there anything more attractive to the rest of us than someone who is self-sufficient and is at peace with themselves? We think they have a secret that they could share with us. We’re attracted to them because we hope some of it will rub off.”
Steffen Jacobsen, Trophy: A Novel

“Personally, he had never really understood the appeal of the fashion industry. Young, star-struck people flocked to the houses in Milan and Paris like lemmings to a cliff edge, bringing with them their portfolios and dreams. Now more than ever, it would seem. He was besieged. But then again we live in a narcissistic age, he thought to himself, which in turn was probably what made it so hard for young people today to love each other or devote themselves to anything. It required a soul – or a personality at least – to lose yourself in something bigger. These days everyone was conceived in fertility clinics, designed to certain specifications and their unimaginative provenance gave them the mistaken belief that they were somehow unique, interesting or especially precious.”
Steffen Jacobsen, When the Dead Awaken

“and deep down, she trusted no one but herself. That was her nature and, besides, she hated depending on other people’s speed and accuracy”
