Kingsley Amis
“When that ineffable compound of depression, sadness (these two are not the same), anxiety, self-hatred, sense of failure and fear for the future begins to steal over you, start telling yourself that what you have is a hangover. You are not sickening for anything, you have not suffered a minor brain lesion, you are not all that bad at your job, your family and friends are not leagued in a conspiracy of barely maintained silence about what a s**t you are, you have not come at last to see life as it really is and there is no use crying over spilt milk.”
Kingsley Amis

Thomas Ligotti
“To my mind, a well-developed sense of humor is the surest indication of a person's humanity, no matter how black and bitter that humor may be.”
Thomas Ligotti

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“The Voice

There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
"I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong."
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What's right for you--just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.”
Shel Silverstein

Gregory Maguire
“Books fall open, you fall in. When you climb out again, you're a bit larger than you used to be.”
Gregory Maguire
