D.H. Lawrence
“A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.”
D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover

Flannery O'Connor
“She would've been a good woman," said The Misfit, "if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life.”
Flannery O'Connor, A Good Man is Hard to Find and Other Stories

Flannery O'Connor
“Anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days.”
Flannery O'Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

Raymond Carver
“Booze takes a lot of time and effort if you're going to do a good job with it.”
Raymond Carver, Where I'm Calling From: New and Selected Stories
tags: booze

“He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it, who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
die slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.”
Martha Medeiros
