William Shakespeare
“These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triump die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

J.K. Rowling
“Harry was left to ponder in silence the depths to which girls would sink to get revenge.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Jeffrey Eugenides
“Emotions, in my experience, aren't covered by single words. I don't believe in "sadness," "joy," or "regret." Maybe the best proof that the language is patriarchal is that it oversimplifies feeling. I'd like to have at my disposal complicated hybrid emotions, Germanic train-car constructions like, say, "the happiness that attends disaster." Or: "the disappointment of sleeping with one's fantasy." I'd like to show how "intimations of mortality brought on by aging family members" connects with "the hatred of mirrors that begins in middle age." I'd like to have a word for "the sadness inspired by failing restaurants" as well as for "the excitement of getting a room with a minibar." I've never had the right words to describe my life, and now that I've entered my story, I need them more than ever. ”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

Jonathan Safran Foer
“I don't think that there are any limits to how excellent we could make life seem.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Jack Kerouac
“We turned at a dozen paces, for love is a duel, and looked at each other for the last time.”
Jack Kerouac
