Book cover for Her: A Novel (Episode 1/3)
adored the rain. It feels refreshing on my face
Thomas Hardy
“Her experience had been of a kind to teach her, rightly or wrongly, that the doubtful honor of a brief transit through a sorry world hardly called for effusiveness, even when the path was suddenly irradiated at some half-way point by daybeams rich as hers. But her strong sense that neither she nor any human being deserved less than was given, did not blind her to the fact that there were others receiving less who had deserved much more. And in being forced to class herself among the fortunate she did not cease to wonder at the persistence of the unforeseen, when the one to whom such unbroken tranquility had been accorded in the adult stage was she whose youth had seemed to teach that happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain.”
Thomas Hardy, The Mayor of Casterbridge

Thomas Hardy
“Life is an oasis which is submerged in the swirling waves of sorrows and agonies.”
Thomas Hardy, The Mayor of Casterbridge

Lloyd Jones
“You cannot read Dickens without putting in a little more effort. You cannot eat a ripe pawpaw without its innards and juice spilling down your chin. Likewise, the language of Dickens makes your mouth do strange things, and when you're not used to his words your jaw will creak.”
Lloyd Jones, Mister Pip

Lloyd Jones
“Dreams are private, she said. And she is right. A dream is a story that no one else will get to hear or read.”
Lloyd Jones, Mister Pip

Lloyd Jones
“I was one of those heart seeds us kids had heard about in class. I was at some earlier stage of a journey that would deliver me to another place, to another life, into another way of being. I just didn't know where or when.”
Lloyd Jones, Mister Pip
