Kate Atkinson
“Why do cats sleep so much? Perhaps they've been trusted with some major cosmic task, an essential law of physics - such as: if there are less than 5 million cats sleeping at any one time the world will stop spinning. So that when you look at them and think, "what a lazy, good-for-nothing animal," they are, in fact, working very, very hard.”
Kate Atkinson

Ruth Rendell
“Some say life is the thing, but I prefer reading.”
Ruth Rendell, A Judgement in Stone

Stephen King
“Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. … The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
Stephen King

“I tried to think of what a tabloid newspaper might call my book and came up with ‘Cakey Cakey Fat Cunt’.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion: My Autobiography

Lemony Snicket
“Are you ready?" Klaus asked finally.
"No," Sunny answered.
"Me neither," Violet said, "but if we wait until we're ready we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives, Let's go.”
Lemony Snicket, The Ersatz Elevator
