A.S. Byatt
“You did not so much mind being -conventionally- betrayed, if you were not kept in the dark, which was humiliating, or defined only as a wife and dependent person, which was annihilating.”
A.S. Byatt, The Children's Book

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Of course my jokes are in poor taste, inappropriate, and confused; they reveal my lack of security. But that is because I have no respect for myself.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from Underground, White Nights, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, and Selections from The House of the Dead

A.S. Byatt
“There is a peculiar aesthetic pleasure in constructing the form of a syllabus, or a book of essays, or a course of lectures. Visions and shadows of people and ideas can be arranged and rearranged like stained-glass pieces in a window, or chessmen on a board.”
A.S. Byatt, The Children's Book

Samuel Butler
“Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule.”
Samuel Butler

Charlotte Brontë
“It is not violence that best overcomes hate -- nor vengeance that most certainly heals injury.”
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
