Douglas Coupland
“Another afternoon: I'm unshaven, dishes are fermenting in the kitchen sink and my shirt smells like a teenage boy's bedroom. There were no clean spoons around the house so I ate cottage cheese with a plastic tortoiseshell shoehorn that was lying next to the couch — so I guess I've hit a new personal low.”
Douglas Coupland

Scott McCloud
“The natural world creates great beauty every day, yet the only rules of composition it follows are those of function and chance.”
Scott McCloud, Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art

Warren Ellis
“Be exposed. Be open. Be who you want to be. It will never hurt as much as starving your own humanity of oxygen.”
Warren Ellis, Trees, Vol. 1: In Shadow

Rebecca Solnit
“Feminism is an endeavor to change something very old, widespread, and deeply rooted in many, perhaps most, cultures around the world, innumerable institutions, and most households on Earth—and in our minds, where it all begins and ends. That so much change has been made in four or five decades is amazing; that everything is not permanantly, definitively, irrevocably changed is not a sign of failure. A woman goes walking down a thousand-mile road. Twenty minutes after she steps forth, they proclaim that she still has nine hundred ninety-nine miles to go and will never get anywhere.”
Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me

Roald Dahl
“I was thrilled. I had never met a famous writer before. I examined him closely as he sat in my office. What astonished me was that he looked so ordinary. There was nothing in the least unusual about him. His face, his conversation, his eyes behind the spectacles, even his clothes were all exceedingly normal. And yet here was a writer of stories who was famous the world over. His books had been read by millions of people. I expected sparks to be shooting out of his head, or at the very least, he should have been wearing a long green cloak and a floppy hat with a wide brim. But no.”
Roald Dahl, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More
