"I like Mark Twain's writing. He appreciates the craft of writing but doesn't take it or himself too seriously.

“There's something really cathartic about that, about owning up to your truth.”

Kazuo Ishiguro
“Why, Mr Stevens, why, why, why do you always have to pretend?”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day

Anthony Marra
“You remain the hero of your own story even when you become the villain of someone else's.”
Anthony Marra, The Tsar of Love and Techno

“A person who speaks as if he knows everything soon drives away his listeners. The Universe communicates itself to us in many ways, and sometimes, it is through the words of others. If we act the know-it-all, others may refrain from talking to us, and we may fail to get the message they could have given us.”
Wu Wei, I Ching Wisdom: More Guidance from the Book of Answers, Volume Two

Hettie Jones
“Anyone in pursuit of art is responding to a desire to make visible that which is not, to offer the unknown self to others.”
Hettie Jones
