Hanya Yanagihara
“Both of them were uncertain; both of them were trying as much as they could; both of them would doubt themselves, would progress and recede. But they would both keep trying, because they trusted the other, and because the other person was the only other person who would ever be worth such hardships, such difficulties, such insecurities and exposure.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Paula Daly
“I used to think it bordered on tragedy the way families lose touch, the way people sever ties, putting a pretty place to live above being together. But now I realize that's just how people like it. They don't always want to be together.”
Paula Daly, Just What Kind of Mother Are You?

“L'amour vrai nait dans la souffrance. Il faut s'épurer de toute fausse joie, de tout plaisir mondain, de toute ambition, de toutes les facilités matérielles, pour atteindre a la liberté du désespéré, seul état dans lequel la vérité du délire amoureux puisse encore trouver sa voie jusqu'au fond de l’être.”
Simon Liberati, Eva

Paul Kalanithi
“And then we would sit and watch as the first hint of sunlight, a light tinge of day blue, would leak out of the eastern horizon, slowly erasing the stars. The day sky would spread wide and high, until the first ray of the sun made an appearance. The morning commuters began to animate the distant South Lake Tahoe roads. But craning your head back, you could see the day’s blue darken halfway across the sky, and to the west, the night remained yet unconquered – pitch-black, stars in full glimmer, the full moon still pinned in the sky. To the east, the full light of day beamed toward you; to the west, night reigned with no hint of surrender. No philosopher can explain the sublime better than this, standing between day and night. It was as if this were the moment God said, “Let there be light!” You could not help but feel your specklike existence against the immensity of the mountain, the earth, the universe, and yet still feel your own two feet on the talus, reaffirming your presence amid the grandeur.”
Paul Kalanithi

Claire Messud
“It was supposed to say "Great Artist" on my tombstone, but if I died right now it would say "such a good teacher/daughter/friend" instead; and what I really want to shout, and want in big letters on that grave, too, is FUCK YOU ALL.”
Claire Messud, The Woman Upstairs
