Sylvia Plath
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Gabriel García Márquez
“Perhaps this is what the stories meant when they called somebody heartsick. Your heart and your stomach and your whole insides felt empty and hollow and aching.”
Gabriel García Márquez

“A story is a letter that the author writes to himself, to tell himself things that he would be unable to discover otherwise.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Jonathan Safran Foer
“It's the tragedy of loving, you can't love anything more than something you miss.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

David Sedaris
“Hugh and I have been together for so long that in order to arouse extraordinary passion, we need to engage in physical combat. Once, he hit me on the back of the head with a broken wineglass, and I fell to the floor pretending to be unconscious. That was romantic, or would have been had he rushed to my side rather than stepping over my body to fetch the dustpan.”
David Sedaris, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
