“Pride is not the opposite of shame, but it's source. True humility is the only antidote to shame.”
General Iroh

Gregory Maguire
“Just my luck, if I believed in luck. I only believe in the opposite of luck, whatever that is.”
Gregory Maguire, A Lion Among Men

David Foster Wallace
“Fiction is one of the few experiences where loneliness can be both confronted and relieved. Drugs, movies where stuff blows up, loud parties -- all these chase away loneliness by making me forget my name's Dave and I live in a one-by-one box of bone no other party can penetrate or know. Fiction, poetry, music, really deep serious sex, and, in various ways, religion -- these are the places (for me) where loneliness is countenanced, stared down, transfigured, treated.”
David Foster Wallace

John Crowley
“Everybody grows up by leaps, and not by a steady climb like a mountaineer.”
John Crowley, Four Freedoms

Julian Barnes
“History isn't the lies of the victors, as I once glibly assured Old Joe Hunt; I know that now. It's more the memories of the survivors, most of whom are neither victorious or defeated.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending
