Barbara Kingsolver
“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Nick Hornby
“Maybe we all live life at too high a pitch, those of us who absorb emotional things all day, and as mere consequence we can never feel merely content: we have to be unhappy, or ecstatically, head-over-heels happy, and those states are difficult to achieve within a stable, solid relationship.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Joseph Brodsky
“For darkness restores what light cannot repair.”
Joseph Brodsky

Louise Erdrich
“We do know that no one gets wise enough to really understand the heart of another, though it is the task of our life to try.”
Louise Erdrich, The Bingo Palace

Jean-Paul Sartre
“This is what I thought: for the most banal even to become an adventure, you must (and this is enough) begin to recount it. This is what fools people: a man is always a teller of tales, he sees everything that happens to him through them; and he tries to live his own life as if he were telling a story.
But you have to choose: live or tell.”
Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea
