The Dead Fish Museum by Charles D'Ambrosio
"A wonderful collection of short stories that evoke emotions as rich and different as the worlds represented -- from Kalona, Iowa to New York City and Seattle.

My favorite passage, from the story "Blessing":

"My ideal life is a quiet one. I like to..." Read more of this review »

C.S. Lewis
“I have no duty to be anyone's Friend and no man in the world has a duty to be mine. No claims, no shadow of necessity. Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

C.S. Lewis
“As Venus within Eros does not really aim at pleasure, so Eros does not aim at happiness. We may think he does, but when he is brought to the test it proves otherwise... For it is the very mark of Eros that when he is in us we had rather share unhappiness with the Beloved than be happy on any other terms.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Melina Marchetta
“Scatter?' Tate said. 'Why? We stay here. Why go anywhere else?'
'Because we'll never know how great this place is until we leave it,' Narnie said.”
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

Virginia Woolf
“He called her a melon, a pineapple, an olive tree, an emerald, and a fox in the snow all in the space of three seconds; he did not know whether he had heard her, tasted her, seen her, or all three together.”
Virginia Woolf

Fernando Pessoa
“My soul is impatient with itself, as with a bothersome child; its restlessness keeps growing and is forever the same. Everything interests me, but nothing holds me. I attend to everything, dreaming all the while. […]. I'm two, and both keep their distance — Siamese twins that aren't attached.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
