Book cover for The House of Mirth
It was not, after all, opportunity but imagination that he lacked: he had a mental palate which would never learn to distinguish between railway tea and nectar.
Dashiell Hammett
“Are you – who make your living snooping – sneering at my curiosity about people and my attempts to satisfy it?" "We're different," I said. "I do mine with the object of putting people in jail, and I get paid for it, though not as much as I should." "That's not different," he said. "I do mine with the object of putting people in books, and I get paid for it, though not as much as I should." "Yeah, but what good does that do?" "God knows. What good does putting them in jail do?" "Relieves congestion," I said. "Put enough people in jail, and cities wouldn't have traffic problems.”
Dashiell Hammett, The Dain Curse

Cal Newport
“the craftsman mindset focuses on what you can offer the world, the passion mindset focuses instead on what the world can offer you. This mindset is how most people approach their working lives.”
Cal Newport, So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love

James S.A. Corey
“She’d stopped looking tired a while ago and had moved on to whatever tired turns into when it became a lifestyle.”
James S.A. Corey, Caliban's War

Rob Thurman
“...she'd also said more than once that I wasn't half as clever as I thought I was. Considering what I thought of myself, that still made me pretty damn clever.”
Rob Thurman, Trick of the Light

Daniel Polansky
“You got no business coming in here and playing the asshole.’
‘I am an asshole, Sully. We haven’t even scraped the surface yet.”
Daniel Polansky, She Who Waits
