Margaret Atwood
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

James Joyce
“Love loves to love love.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

James Joyce
“Shakespeare is the happy hunting ground of all minds that have lost their balance.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

James Joyce
“To learn one must be humble. But life is the great teacher.”
James Joyce, Ulysses

Margaret Atwood
“Never mind. Point being that you don't have to get too worked up about us, dear educated minds. You don't have to think of us as real girls, real flesh and blood, real pain, real injustice. That might be too upsetting. Just discard the sordid part. Consider us pure symbol. We're no more real than money.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad
