“how much he loved being alone except when he didn't, except when it got to be too much?”
Elizabeth Graver, The Honey Thief

“Largely, now, it was not anger he felt, but rather a kind of bone-scraping, quiet, ever-present sorrow. To come to the place that was supposed to stay the same, to come and find it changed. Dr. Miller had warned him against what he called the 'geographic cure.' You can't fix yourself by going somewhere else, he'd said. You'll always take yourself along.”
Elizabeth Graver, The End of the Point

“Table salt hardens here. Books mildew. Diaries flip open. Private Property: Please Turn Around.”
Elizabeth Graver, The End of the Point

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own

“Try to be one of those on whom nothing is lost.”
Henry James, The Art of Fiction

“Darling, I don't want you; I've got no place for you; I only want what you give. I don't want the whole of anyone.... What you want is the whole of me-isn't it, isn't it?-and the whole of me isn't there for anybody. In that full sense you want me I don't exist.”
Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart

“I don't believe less is more. I believe that more is more. I believe that less is less, fat fat, thin thin and enough is enough. ”
Stanley Elkin

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life
