Walter Scott
“The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonored , and unsung.
Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)”
Walter Scott

William Faulkner
“. . .in August in Mississippi there’s a few days somewhere about the middle of the month when suddenly there’s a foretaste of fall, it’s cool, there’s a lambence, a soft, a luminous quality to the light, as though it came not from just today but from back in the old classic times. It might have fauns and satyrs and the gods and---from Greece, from Olympus in it somewhere. It lasts just for a day or two, then it’s gone. . .the title reminded me of that time, of a luminosity older than our Christian civilization.”
William Faulkner, Light in August

Thomas Pynchon
“He’s wasted gallons of paint thinner striking his faithful Zippo, its charred wick, virility giving way to thrift, rationed down to a little stub, the blue flame sparking about the edges in the dark, the many kinds of dark, just to see what’s happening with her face. Each new flame, a new face.”
Thomas Pynchon

Mary Oliver
“Oh Lord of melons, of mercy, though I am not ready, nor worthy, I am climbing towards you.”
Mary Oliver, Thirst

Walter Scott
“God will raise me up a champion."
~ Rebecca (Ivanhoe)”
Walter Scott
