‘Anxiety is a state of being tuned… like a hypersensitive nervous system, and that manifests in all sorts of terrible ways… but it also makes you very aware of what’s happening around you, which is a quality that writers and other artists benefit from.’

Albert Camus
“There is not love of life without despair about life.”
Albert Camus, The Stranger

Franz Kafka
“I am a cage, in search of a bird.”
Franz Kafka

Virginia Woolf
“One should be a painter. As a writer, I feel the beauty, which is almost entirely colour, very subtle, very changeable, running over my pen, as if you poured a large jug of champagne over a hairpin.”
Virginia Woolf, The Letters of Virginia Woolf: Volume Six, 1936-1941

William Shakespeare
“This goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory, this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust?”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

Franz Kafka
“I carry the bars within me.”
Franz Kafka

No worries! Hope you enjoy it if you do pick it up. :)


Marianne Curley Angela Meyer, thank you for recommending S.A. Jones' The Fortress. It doesn't sound like what I might normally read, but I like to be surprised and I like to read widely, so I'm looking forward to reading this soon. It sounds intriguing. Thanks again.


Angela Meyer Hi Kris, no problem! I'm always trying to read 50 things at once. Just had a look at your profile and am looking forward to browsing your shelves. I joined Goodreads about a month ago, and am (slowly) adding and categorising. It's great fun.
