Stanley Milgram
“The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.”
Stanley Milgram

Haruki Murakami
“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Margaret Atwood
“I wonder which is preferable, to walk around all your life swollen up with your own secrets until you burst from the pressure of them, or to have them sucked out of you, every paragraph, every sentence, every word of them, so at the end you're depleted of all that was once as precious to you as hoarded gold, as close to you as your skin - everything that was of the deepest importance to you, everything that made you cringe and wish to conceal, everything that belonged to you alone - and must spend the rest of your days like an empty sack flapping in the wind, an empty sack branded with a bright fluorescent label so that everyone will know what sort of secrets used to be inside you?”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Emma Cline
“I waited to be told what was good about me. [...] All that time I had spent readying myself, the articles that taught me life was really just a waiting room until someone noticed you- the boys had spent that time becoming themselves.”
Emma Cline, The Girls

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Surely all art is the result of one's having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters on Cézanne
