J.D. Salinger
“I’m just sick of ego, ego, ego. My own and everybody else’s. I’m sick of everybody that wants to get somewhere, do something distinguished and all, be somebody interesting. It’s disgusting.”
J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part

Marilynne Robinson
“I have spent my life watching, not to see beyond the world, merely to see, great mystery, what is plainly before my eyes. I think the concept of transcendence is based on a misreading of creation. With all respect to heaven, the scene of the miracle is here, among us. The eternal as an idea is much less preposterous than time, and this very fact should seize our attention.”
Marilynne Robinson, The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought

Theodore Roethke
“Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries.”
Theodore Roethke, Straw for the Fire: From the Notebooks of Theodore Roethke

Robert Musil
“One must conform to the baseness of an age or become neurotic.”
Robert Musil
