Amy Tan
“I think now that fate is half shaped by expectation, half by inattention. But somehow, when you lose something you love, faith takes over. You have to pay attention to what you lost. You have to undo the expectation.”
Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club

Oliver Sacks
“To be ourselves we must have ourselves – possess, if need be re-possess, our life-stories. We must “recollect” ourselves, recollect the inner drama, the narrative, of ourselves. A man needs such a narrative, a continuous inner narrative, to maintain his identity, his self.”
Oliver Sacks, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales

Michael Foot
“We are not here in this world to find elegant solutions, pregnant with initiative, or to serve the ways and modes of profitable progress. No, we are here to provide for all those who are weaker and hungrier, more battered and crippled than ourselves. That is our only certain good and great purpose on earth, and if you ask me about those insoluble economic problems that may arise if the top is deprived of their initiative, I would answer 'To hell with them.' The top is greedy and mean and will always find a way to take care of themselves. They always do.”
Michael Foot

Grace Paley
“That heartbreaking moment when you finish an amazing book, and you are forced to return to reality.”
Grace Paley

Oliver Sacks
“We speak not only to tell other people what we think, but to tell ourselves what we think. Speech is a part of thought.”
Oliver Sacks, Seeing Voices
