Mary Gaitskill
“Of course there’s something there; unfortunately, there’s always something ‘there.’ Something you will one day be sorry you saw.”
Mary Gaitskill, Veronica

“The heart's in it then, spinning dreams, and torment is on the way. The heart makes dreams seem like ideas.”
Daniel Woodrell, Winter's Bone

Joan Didion
“I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.”
Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Harry Crews
“If you wait until you got time to write a novel, or time to write a story, or time to read the hundred thousands of books you should have already read - if you wait for the time, you will never do it. ‘Cause there ain’t no time; world don’t want you to do that. World wants you to go to the zoo and eat cotton candy, preferably seven days a week.”
Harry Crews
