Lesley M.M. Blume
“The epithet was quickly moving toward capitalized status: the Lost Generation. In subsequent generations, similar umbrella identities would be ascribed to each era’s under-thirty crowd: the Beat Generation, Generation X, the Millennials, and so on. But the Lost Generation was the forerunner of modern youthful angst banners, and The Sun Also Rises was its bible.”
Lesley M.M. Blume, Everybody Behaves Badly: The True Story Behind Hemingway's Masterpiece The Sun Also Rises

Matt Haig
“I have been so many different people, played so many different roles in my life. I am not a person. I am a crowd in one body. I was people I hated and people I admired. I was exciting and boring and happy and infinitely sad.”
Matt Haig, How to Stop Time

Matt Haig
“As far as I can see, this is a problem with living in the twenty-first century. Many of us have every material thing we need, so the job of marketing is now to tie the economy to our emotions, to make us feel like we need more by making us want things we never needed before. We are made to feel poor on thirty thousand pounds a year. To feel poorly travelled if we have been to only ten other countries. To feel too old if we have a wrinkle. To feel ugly if we aren’t photoshopped and filtered. No one I knew in the 1600s wanted to find their inner billionaire. They just wanted to live to see adolescence and avoid body lice.”
Matt Haig, How to Stop Time

“Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.”
Matt Haig, How to Stop Time

Julie Lawson Timmer
“It’s not how we got here,” she said as she went. “Or even that we are here. It’s where we go from here.” A”
Julie Lawson Timmer, Mrs. Saint and the Defectives
