Henry James
“There is only one recipe - to care a great deal for the cookery.”
Henry James

Toni Morrison
“Anger ... it's a paralyzing emotion ... you can't get anything done. People sort of think it's an interesting, passionate, and igniting feeling — I don't think it's any of that — it's helpless ... it's absence of control — and I need all of my skills, all of the control, all of my powers ... and anger doesn't provide any of that — I have no use for it whatsoever."

[Interview with CBS radio host Don Swaim, September 15, 1987.]”
Toni Morrison

Roberto Bolaño
“Nothing happened today. And if anything did, I’d rather not talk about it, because I didn’t understand it.”
Roberto Bolaño, The Savage Detectives

Frank O'Hara
“Kerouac: You're ruining American poetry, O'Hara.
O'Hara: That's more than you ever did for it, Kerouac”
Frank O'Hara

Cees Nooteboom
“Conversations consist for the most part of things one does not say.”
Cees Nooteboom
