José Saramago
“What dogs want most in life is for no one to go away.”
José Saramago, The Double

Ian McEwan
“There wasn't really much else to do. Make something, and die.”
Ian McEwan, Amsterdam

Oscar Wilde
“I like to do all the talking myself.  It saves time, and prevents arguments.” “But”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Tales

Ian McEwan
“Was it boredom or sadism that made the shirt service people do up every single button?”
Ian McEwan, Amsterdam

José Saramago
“Sometimes all it takes is a simple word, a mere nothing, a well-intentioned but over-protective gesture, like the gesture made, quite unwittingly, by the Mathematics teacher, for the pacific, docile, submissive person suddenly to vanish and be replaced, to the dismay and incomprehension of those who thought they knew all there was to know about the human soul, by the blind, devastating wrath of the meek. It doesn't usually last very long, but while it does, it inspires real fear.”
José Saramago, The Double
