"Oh how wonderful.

How did we all become so infatuated with Jane Austin when George Eliot was an option?"

Zia Haider Rahman
“Zafar argues that the greatest influence on a writer may be on her psychic dispositions as a writer. Reading Philip Roth, writes Zafar, might clear the way of inhibitions that held you back from writing about reckless desire, the temptations of power, and the immanence of rage, or reading Naipaul might convince you to seize the ego that so wants to be loved, drag it outside, put it up against a wall, and shoot it.”
Zia Haider Rahman, In the Light of What We Know

Iris Murdoch
“What a test that is: more than devotion, admiration, passion. If you long and long for someone’s company you love them.”
Iris Murdoch, The Sea, the Sea

Iris Murdoch
“we are such inward secret creatures, that inwardness the most amazing thing about us, even more amazing than our reason. but we cannot just walk into the cavern and look around. most of what we think we know about our minds is pseudo-knowledge. we are all such shocking poseurs, so good at inflating the importance of what we think we value.”
Iris Murdoch, The Sea, the Sea

William Shakespeare
“Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.”
William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Iris Murdoch
“I ate and drank slowly as one should (cook fast, eat slowly) and without distractions such as (thank heavens) conversation or reading. Indeed eating is so pleasant one should even try to suppress thought. Of course reading and thinking are important but, my God, food is important too. How fortunate we are to be food-consuming animals. Every meal should be a treat and one ought to bless every day which brings with it a good digestion and the precious gift of hunger.”
Iris Murdoch, The Sea, the Sea
