P.G. Wodehouse
“I always advise people never to give advice.”
P.G. Wodehouse

Ernest Hemingway
“Isn't it pretty to think so.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

James Joyce
“A few light taps upon the pane made him turn to the window. It had begun to snow again. He watched sleepily the flakes, silver and dark, falling obliquely against the lamplight. The time had come for him to set out on his journey westward. Yes, the newspapers were right: snow was general all over Ireland. It was falling on every part of the dark central plain, on the treeless hills, falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and, farther westward, softly falling into the dark mutinous Shannon waves. It was falling, too, upon every part of the lonely churchyard on the hill where Michael Furey lay buried. It lay thickly drifted on the crooked crosses and headstones, on the spears of the little gate, on the barren thorns. His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.”
James Joyce, Dubliners

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Dear future generations: Please accept our apologies. We were rolling drunk on petroleum.”
Kurt Vonnegut

José Saramago
“We use words to understand each other and even, sometimes, to find each other.”
José Saramago
