Leslie A. Fiedler
“Our great novelists, though experts on indignity and assault, on loneliness and terror, tend to avoid treating the passionate encounter of a man and a woman, which we expect at the center of a novel. Indeed, they rather shy away from permitting in their fictions the presence of any full-fledged, mature women, giving us instead monsters of virtue or bitchery, symbols of the rejection or fear of sexuality.”
Leslie Fiedler, Love and Death in the American Novel

Leo Tolstoy
“If everyone fought for their own convictions there would be no war.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

I couldn’t pass by without the smell of it pressing on my chest, suffocating me even as it drew me in. That’s what being sober felt like. Something like not enough oxygen.”
Lauren Sapala, West Is San Francisco

Michel Houellebecq
“Talking to morons like that is like pissing in a urinal full of cigarette butts, like shitting in a toilet full of Tampax: nothing gets flushed, and everything starts to stink.”
Michel Houellebecq, The Elementary Particles
