Anne Lamott
“But baseball, if we love it, gives us back our place in the crowd. It restores us.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Charlaine Harris
“[Eric] 'So you want me to go to a human orgy, where I will not be welcome, and you want us to leave before I get to enjoy myself?'

[Sookie] 'Yes,' I said, almost squeaking in my anxiety. In for a penny, in for a pound. 'And... do you think you could pretend to be gay?”
Charlaine Harris, Living Dead in Dallas

Arthur Conan Doyle
“It's the Baker Street division of the detective police force... There's more work to be got out of one of those little beggars than out of a dozen of the force,' Holmes remarked. 'The mere sight of an official-looking person seals men's lips. These youngsters, however, go everywhere and hear everything. They are as sharp as needles, too; all they want is organization.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet
tags: humor

Kevin Hearne
“To be rooted is to say, here am I nourished and here will I grow, for I have found a place where every sunrise shows me how to be more than what I was yesterday, and I need not wander to feel the wonder of my blessing.”
Kevin Hearne, Shattered

Gillian Flynn
“I waited patiently - years - for the pendulum to swing the other way, for men to start reading Jane Austen, learn how to knit, pretend to love cosmos, organize scrapbook parties, and make out with each other while we leer. And then we'd say, Yeah, he's a Cool Guy.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl
