F. Scott Fitzgerald
“The cleverly expressed opposite of any generally accepted idea is worth a fortune to somebody.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Alex Garland
“When you develop an infatuation for someone you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly the person for you. It doesn’t need to be a good reason. Taking photographs of the night sky, for example. Now, in the long run, that’s just the kind of dumb, irritating habit that would cause you to split up. But in the haze of infatuation, it’s just what you’ve been searching for all these years.”
Alex Garland, The Beach

Zadie Smith
“In a vision, Irie has seen a time, a time not far from now, when roots won’t matter any more because they can’t because they mustn’t because they’re too long and they’re too tortuous and they’re just buried too damn deep. She looks forward to it.”
Zadie Smith, White Teeth

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“What if man is not really a scoundrel, man in general, I mean, the whole race of mankind - then all the rest is prejudice, simply aritificial terrors and there are no barriers and it's all as it should be.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky
