Kazuo Ishiguro
“Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

Alison Bechdel
“If there was ever a bigger pansy than my father, it was Marcel Proust.”
Alison Bechdel, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

“Coleridge was a drug addict. Poe was an alcoholic. Marlowe was killed by a man whom he was treacherously trying to stab. Pope took money to keep a woman's name out of a satire, then wrote a piece so that she could still be recognized, anyhow. Chatterton killed himself. Byron was accused of incest. Do you still want to a writer -and if so, why?”
Bennett Cerf

Leon Trotsky
“‎The party that leans upon the workers but serves the bourgeoisie, in the period of the greatest sharpening of the class struggle, cannot but sense the smells wafted from the waiting grave.”
Leon Trotsky

Sarah Vowell
“There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind who alphabetize their record collections, and the kind who don't.”
Sarah Vowell, The Partly Cloudy Patriot
