Sylvia Plath
“What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Marguerite Yourcenar
“Sé que no sé lo que no sé; envidio a aquellos que sabrán más que yo, pero también sé que tendrán que medir, pesar, deducir y desconfiar de sus deducciones exactamente igual que yo, y ver en lo falso parte de lo verdadero, y tener en cuenta en lo verdadero la eterna mixtión de lo falso. Jamás me agarré a una idea por temor al desamparo en que caería sin ella. Nunca aliñé un hecho verdadero con la salsa de la mentira, para hacerme su digestión más fácil.
He soñado mis sueños; no pretendo que sean más que sueños. Me guardé muy bien de hacer de la verdad un ídolo, prefiriendo dejarle su nombre más humilde de exactitud. Mis triunfos y mis riesgos no son los que se cree; existen glorias distintas de la gloria y hogueras distintas de la hoguera. He llegado casi a desconfiar de las palabras. Moriré un poco menos necio de lo que nací.”
Marguerite Yourcenar, L'Œuvre au noir

Susanna Clarke
“If I were you, Mr. Lascelles," said Childermass, softly, "I would speak more guardedly. You are in the north now. In John Uskglass's own country. Our towns and cities and abbeys were built by him. Our laws were made by him. He is our minds and hearts and speech. Were it summer you would see a carpet of tiny flowers beneath every hedgerow, of a bluish-white colour. We call them John’s Farthings. When the weather is contrary and we have warm weather in winter or it rains in summer the country people say that John Uskglass is in love again and neglects his business. And when we are sure of something we say it is as safe as a pebble in John Uskglass’s pocket.”
Lascelles laughed. “Far be it from me, Mr. Childermass, to disparage your quaint country sayings. But surely it is one thing to pay lip-service to one’s history and quite another to talk of bringing back a King who numbered Lucifer himself among his allies and overlords? No one wants that, do they? I mean apart from a few Jihannites and madmen?”
“I am a North Englishman, Mr. Lascelles,” said Childermass. “Nothing would please me better than that my King should come home. It is what I have wished for all my life.”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Virginia Woolf
“I need a little language such as lovers use, words of one syllable such as children speak when they come into the room and find their mother sewing and pick up some scrap of bright wool, a feather, or a shred of chintz. I need a howl; a cry. When the storm crosses the marsh and sweeps over me where I lie in the ditch unregarded I need no words. Nothing neat. Nothing that comes down with all its feet on the floor. None of those resonances and lovely echoes that break and chime from nerve to nerve in our breasts making wild music, false phrases. I have done with phrases.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Despair, or folly?' said Gandalf. 'It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope. Well, let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy! For he is very wise, and weighs all things to a nicety in the scales of his malice. But the only measure that he knows is desire, desire for power; and so he judges all hearts. Into his heart the thought will not enter that any will refuse it, that having the Ring we may seek to destroy it. If we seek this, we shall put him out of reckoning.'
'At least for a while,' said Elrond. 'The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strenght nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
