Steve Almond
“Art arises from loss. I wish this weren't the case. I wish that every time I met a new woman and she rocked my world, I was inspired to write my ass off. But that is not what happens. What happens is we lie around in bed eating chocolate and screwing. Art is what happens when things don't work out, when you're licking your wounds. Art is, to a larger extent than people would like to think, a productive licking of the wounds.”
Steve Almond, Candyfreak: A Journey through the Chocolate Underbelly of America

David Sedaris
“When shit brings you down, just say 'fuck it', and eat yourself some motherfucking candy.”
David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

Steve Almond
“It's like this when you fall hard for a musician. It's a crush with religious overtones. You listen to the songs and you memorize the words and the notes and this is a form of prayer. You attend the shows and this is the liturgy. You're interested in relics -- guitar picks, set lists, the sweaty napkin applied to His brow. You set up shrines in your room. It's not just about the music. It's about who you are when you listen to the music and who you wish to be and the way a particular song can bridge that gap, can make you feel the abrupt thrill of absolute faith.”
Steve Almond, Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life: A Book by and for the Fanatics Among Us

Ann Patchett
“There was such an incredible logic to kissing, such a metal-to-magnet pull between two people that it was a wonder that they found the strength to prevent themselves from succumbing every second. Rightfully, the world should be a whirlpool of kissing into which we sank and never found the strength to rise up again.”
Ann Patchett, Bel Canto

David Sedaris
“Real love amounts to withholding the truth, even when you're offered the perfect opportunity to hurt someone's feelings”
David Sedaris, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
