Marcel Proust
“Love is not vain because it is frustrated, but because it is fulfilled. The people we love turn to ashes when we posess them.”
Marcel Proust, Remembrance of Things Past: Volume II - The Guermantes Way & Cities of the Plain

Joy Williams
“Anthropomorphism originally meant the attribution of human characteristics to God. It is curious that the word is now used almost exclusively to ascribe human characteristics--such as fidelity or altruism or pride, or emotions such as love, embarrassment, or sadness--to the nonhuman animal. One is guilty of anthropomorphism, though it is no longer a sacrilegious word. It is a derogatory, dismissive one that connotes a sort of rampant sentimentality. It’s just another word in the arsenal of the many words used to attack the animal rights movement.”
joy williams, Ill Nature

Flannery O'Connor
“Anything that comes out of the South is going to be called grotesque by the northern reader, unless it is grotesque, in which case it is going to be called realistic.”
Flannery O'Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

Charlotte Brontë
“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter - often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter - in the eye.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Gilles Deleuze
“A concept is a brick. It can be used to build a courthouse of reason. Or it can be thrown through the window.”
Gilles Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia
