James Joyce
“You made me confess the fears that I have. But I will tell you also what I do not fear. I do not fear to be alone or to be spurned for another or to leave whatever I have to leave. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, a lifelong mistake and perhaps as long as eternity too.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

James Joyce
“You have asked me what I would do and what I would not do. I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use—silence, exile, and cunning.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“There is no virtue if there is no immortality.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Orhan Pamuk
“For if a lover's face survives emblazoned on your heart, the world is still your home.”
Orhan Pamuk, My Name Is Red

Boris Pasternak
“Still more than by the communion of souls, they were united by the abyss that separated them from the rest of the world.”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
