Charlotte Brontë
“I am not an angel," I asserted; "and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Dorothy Whipple
“She had never thought she would let a daughter of hers go away like this. But what could she do? Children grew up; they pleased themselves; they grew in power to go their own ways as you diminished in power to prevent them.”
Dorothy Whipple, Greenbanks

Ira Levin
“That’s what she was, Joanna felt suddenly. That’s what they all were, all the Stepford wives: actresses in commercials, pleased with detergents and floor wax, with cleansers, shampoos, and deodorants. Pretty actresses, big in the bosom but small in the talent, playing housewives unconvincingly, too nicey-nice to be real.”
Ira Levin, The Stepford Wives

Robert Aickman
“One point is that strangeness usually takes an unexpected form, it is no good looking for something strange. It only happens when you're not looking.”
Robert Aickman, Compulsory Games

Daphne du Maurier
“I wish I was a woman of about thirty-six dressed in black satin with a string of pearls.”
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca
