Dorothy L. Sayers
“Lord Peter was hampered in his career as a private detective by a public school education. Despite Parker's admonitions, he was not always able to discount it. His mind had been warped in its young growth by "Raffles" and "Sherlock Holmes," or the sentiments for which they stand. He belonged to a family which had never shot a fox.
'I am an amateur,' said Lord Peter”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Whose Body?

Kazuo Ishiguro
“There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one.”
Kazuo Ishiguro

H.P. Lovecraft
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.”
H.P. Lovecraft

Brian Moore
“Love isn't an act, it's a whole life.”
Brian Moore

“Read, read, read. That's all I can say.”
