“Isn't it sad, growing up? You start off like my Charlie. You start off thinking you can kill all the baddies and save the world. Then you get a little bit older, maybe Little Bee's age, and you realize that some of the world's badness is inside you, that maybe you're a part of it.

Victor Hugo
“He therefore turned to mankind only with regret. His cathedral was enough for him. It was peopled with marble figures of kings, saints and bishops who at least did not laugh in his face and looked at him with only tranquillity and benevolence. The other statues, those of monsters and demons, had no hatred for him – he resembled them too closely for that. It was rather the rest of mankind that they jeered at.

He would sometimes spend whole hours crouched before one of the statues in solitary conversation with it. If anyone came upon him then he would run away like a lover surprised during a serenade.”
Victor Hugo, Notre-Dame de Paris | The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

Roxane Gay, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body

W. Somerset Maugham
“From old habit, unconsciously he thanked God that he no longer believed in Him.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

“Being a nerd, which is to say going too far and caring too much about a subject, is the best way to make friends I know.”
