Margaret Atwood
“Language divides us into fragments, I wanted to be whole.”
Margaret Atwood, Surfacing

Catherynne M. Valente
“When you are first hurt, your anger is fresh and bright and clean. It is hot and eager to defeat injustice. It makes you sharp and keen and quick. so that you can outrace your hurt and leave it lying on some faraway ground where it happened. This is why children cry so bitterly and scream until their faces go read at the smallest hunger or loneliness. They must get terribly, piercingly angry so that they can get out in front of all the little hurts of being new, or else they will never get free of them. But anger can go off like milk in the icebox. It can go hard and rotting and turn everything around it rotting too. By the time you have made your peace, your anger has reeked up your whole heart, it's so gunked up with fuming. That's why you must wash your anger every now and again, or else you can't even move an inch.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home

Hanya Yanagihara
“But back then, back on Lispenard Street, I didn't know so much of this. Then, we were only standing and looking up at that red-brick building, and I was pretending that I never had to fear for him, and he was letting me pretend this: that all the dangerous things he could have done, all the ways he could have broken my heart, were in the past, the stuff of stories, that the time that lay behind us was scary, but the time that lay ahead of us was not.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Machado de Assis
“To him the stars seemed like so many musical notes affixed to the sky, just waiting for somebody to unfasten them.”
Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis

John W. Campbell Jr.
“History does not always repeat itself. Sometimes it just yells, 'Can't you remember anything I told you?' and lets fly with a club.”
John W. Campbell Jr.
