Flann O'Brien
“Having placed in my mouth sufficient bread for three minutes' chewing, I withdrew my powers of sensual perception and retired into the privacy of my mind, my eyes and face assuming a vacant and preoccupied expression. I reflected on the subject of my spare-time literary activities. One Beginning and one ending for a book was a thing I did not agree with. A good book may have three openings entirely dissimilar and inter-related only in the prescience of the author, or for that matter one hundred times as many endings.”
Flann O'Brien

“When money's tight and is hard to get
And your horse has also ran,
When all you have is a heap of debt
Flann O'Brien

“I saw that my witticism was unperceived and quietly replaced it in the treasury of my mind.”
Flann O'Brien, At Swim-Two-Birds

Toni Bernhard
“It is a fundamental human truth, transcending cultures and traditions, that the wisest response to situations that are beyond our control, circumstances that we cannot change, is noncontention.”
Toni Bernhard, How to Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and Their Caregivers

Brad Warner
“Reality's all you've got. But here's the real secret, the real miracle: it's enough.”
Brad Warner, Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies and the Truth about Reality
