Vladimir Nabokov
“What I am thinking of is the man of imagination and science, whose courage is infinite because his curiosity surpasses his courage. Nothing will keep him back.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lance

Trenton Lee Stewart
“After a few more pages of questions, all of which Reynie felt confident he had answered correctly, he arrived at the test's final question: 'Are you brave?' Just reading the words quickened Reynie's heart. Was he brave? Bravery had never been required of him, so how could he tell? Miss Perumal would say he was: She would point out how cheerful he tried to be despite feeling lonely, how patiently he withstood the teasing of other children, and how he was always eager for a challenge. But these things only showed that he was good-natured, polite, and very often bored. Did they really show that he was brave? He didn't think so. Finally he gave up trying to decide and simply wrote, 'I hope so.”
Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society

Madeline Miller
“I thought: I cannot bear this world a moment longer. Then, child, make another.”
Madeline Miller, Circe

Trenton Lee Stewart
“And where most people see mirrors, you, my friend, see windows. By which I mean there is always something beyond the glass. You have seen it and will always see it now, though others may not. I would have spared you that vision at such a young age. But it's been given you, and it will be up to you to decide whether it's a blessing or a curse.”
Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey

Vladimir Nabokov
“The clichés are, of course, disguised; essentially, they are the same throughout all cheap reading matter, whether it spans the universe or the living room. They are like those 'assorted' cookies that differ from one another only in shape and shade.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lance
