Book cover for The Theory of Opposites
“Oh, sweetie. All men are idiots.” She reaches up and cups Jeremy’s cheek. “You just have to decide what sort of idiocy you can live with.”
Jonathan Safran Foer
“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Calvin Coolidge
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

Anne Carson
“Each night about this time he puts on sadness like a garment and goes on writing.”
Anne Carson

J.D. Salinger
“I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.”
J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

J.D. Salinger
“Mothers are all slightly insane.”
J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
