Book cover for Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay (Neapolitan Novels #3)
What’s got into me? Do I want children? Do I want to be a mamma, nursing and singing lullabies? Marriage plus pregnancy? And if my mother should emerge from my stomach just now when I think I’m safe?
W. Somerset Maugham
“Impropriety is the soul of wit.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence

Julian Barnes
“I thought of the things that had happened to me over the years, and of how little I had made happen.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

Glen Duncan
“Literature is humanity's broad-minded alter-ego, with room in its heart for monsters, even for you. It's humanity without the judgement.”
Glen Duncan, Talulla Rising

Sally Rooney
“She closes her eyes. He probably won’t come back, she thinks. Or he will, differently. What they have now they can never have back again. But for her the pain of loneliness will be nothing to the pain that she used to feel, of being unworthy. He brought her goodness like a gift and now it belongs to her. Meanwhile his life opens out before him in all directions at once. They’ve done a lot of good for each other. Really, she thinks, really. People can really change one another.
You should go, she says. I’ll always be here. You know that.”
Sally Rooney, Normal People

Sally Rooney
“It suggests to Connell that the same imagination he used as a reader is necessary to understand real people also, and to be intimate with them.”
Sally Rooney, Normal People
