P.G. Wodehouse
“He seemed to be doing his best to marry into a family of pronounced loonies, and how the deuce he thought he was going to support even a mentally afflicted wife on nothing a year beat me. Old Bittlesham was bound to knock off his allowance if he did anything of the sort and, with a fellow like young Bingo, if you knocked off his allowance, you might just as well hit him on the head with an axe and make a clean job of it.”
P.G. Wodehouse, The Inimitable Jeeves:

Lionel Shriver
“Cynics are spoiled romantics. They are always the ones who had the highest expectations at the start. They were once so naïve themselves that they despise naïvety more than any other quality. Alchemists, they turn grief to gold. They take quinine in their tonic, Campari with their soda—bitterness is an acquired taste. Cynics have learned to drink poison and like it. They are resourceful people, though the sad thing is, they know what’s happened to them. They remember what they wanted to be when they grew up, and not a single one of them dreamt of becoming a cynic.”
Lionel Shriver, Game Control

Paolo Giordano
“Prime numbers are divisible only by 1 and by themselves. They hold their place in the infinite series of natural numbers, squashed, like all numbers, between two others, but one step further than the rest. They are suspicious, solitary numbers, which is why Mattia thought they were wonderful. Sometimes he thought that they had ended up in that sequence by mistake, that they'd been trapped, like pearls strung on a necklace. Other times he suspected that they too would have preferred to be like all others, just ordinary numbers, but for some reason they couldn't do it. This second thought struck him mostly at night, in the chaotic interweaving of images that comes before sleep, when the mind is too weak to tell itself lies.”
Paolo Giordano, The Solitude of Prime Numbers

Stefan Zweig
“Er sah nur immer die beiden ihm gegenüber im Rücksitz des Wagens an, als könnte er mit diesen heißen Blicken wie mit einer Angel das Geheimnis aus den glitzernden Tiefen ihrer Augen herausreißen. Nichts schärft Intelligenz mehr als ein leidenschaftlicher Verdacht, nichts entfaltet mehr alle Möglichkeiten eines unreifen Intellekts als eine Fährte, die ins Dunkel läuft. Manchmal ist es ja nur eine einzige, dünne Tür, die Kinder von der Welt, die wir die wirkliche nennen, abtrennt, und ein zufälliger Windhauch weht sie ihnen auf.”
Stefan Zweig

Paolo Giordano
“She was tired, with that tiredness that only emptiness brings.”
Paolo Giordano, The Solitude of Prime Numbers
