Tina Fey
“The first rule of improvisation is AGREE. Always agree and SAY YES. When you're improvising, this means you are required to agree with whatever your partner has created. So if we're improvising and I say, 'Freeze, I have a gun,' and you say, 'That's not a gun. It's your finger. You're pointing your finger at me,' our improvised scene has ground to a halt. But if I say, 'Freeze, I have a gun!' and you say, 'The gun I gave you for Christmas! You bastard!' then we have started a scene because we have AGREED that my finger is in fact a Christmas gun.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

G.K. Chesterton
“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”
G.K. Chesterton

Stephanie Perkins
“St. Clair clears his throat. 'My fiancée and I are headed out for a celebratory dessert. I'd ask you all to join us, but I don't want you there.”
Stephanie Perkins, Isla and the Happily Ever After

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can’t lick ‘em, join ‘em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have almost lost hold; we can no longer describe a happy man, nor make any celebration of joy.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Wind's Twelve Quarters, Volume 1

Terry Pratchett
“If there was anything that depressed him more than his own cynicism, it was that quite often it still wasn't as cynical as real life.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!
