Romantically, Matthew Scudder and Elaine Mardell in Lawrence Block's Scudder series. I love the way Block unites these two broken people into a solid, intimate couple. I'd like to hang with them.

Sidney Poitier. That alone speaks volumes - in work, life and values. The writing style has me imagining Mr. Poitier speaking at length into some recording device, the final work appearing more transcribed than written, you know?

Still, Sidney Poitier

Ugh. If you’re looking for kewl Star Wars backstory stuff, it ain’t here. Mostly. The focus of the book is 1) clarifying her affair with Harrison Ford, 2) the philosophic ramblings (ad nauseum) of an insecure, neurotic 20 year old, all of which conce ...more

“I would rather avoid disaster than take it out for dinner and a movie. - Chynna Lennox
Jim Cooper, Twisted Ties

“Nobody's perfect. Well, there was this one guy, but we killed him....”
Christopher Moore, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“I thought such awful thoughts that I cannot even say them out loud because they would make Jesus want to drink gin straight out of the cat dish.”
Anne Lamott

“Stephenie Meyer: Her vampires are sparkly, which I think we can all agree is wrong.”
Christopher Moore

“Stop pathetically believing that you deserve fame or fame deserves you. It's yucky, and it's only making you miserable, so stop.”
Cintra Wilson, A Massive Swelling: Celebrity Reexamined as Grotesque Crippling Disease and Other Cultural Revelations
