Anne Rice
“You do have a story inside you; it lies articulate and waiting to be written — behind your silence and your suffering.”
Anne Rice

Nuruddin Farah
“I have tried my best to keep my country alive by writing about it.”
Nuruddin Farah

Guillaume Apollinaire
“How slow life is, how violent hope is.”
Guillaume Apollinaire

Alfred Hayes
“The only thing we haven't lost, I thought, is the ability to suffer. We're fine at suffering. But it's such a noiseless suffering. We never disturb the neighbors with it. We collapse, but we collapse in the most disciplined way. That's us. That's certainly us. The disciplined collapsers.”
Alfred Hayes, In Love

Alfred Hayes
“Did I want her? I thought to myself. Suppose, now, she were to change her mind: Did I want her? Of course not, I assured myself. Was her loss important? How stupid to imagine it was. Nothing of any significance had happened. It was simply that my own life was so barren, or seemed so barren; the temporary possession of her had given me the illusion that it was not, while I had her, barren; now that she was gone, the barrenness that she had temporarily helped to conceal lay exposed. It was because we thought so much that love could save us, that having nothing else but the dry labour of our work we looked so anxiously towards love. It was our ridiculous phoenix.
To suffer, or to experience a suffering for the loss of a girl who had no importance, was absurd; I was absurd because I was suffering; it was something that required hiding away because of its absurdity.”
Alfred Hayes, In Love
