Graham Swift
“Why are the Fens flat? So God has a clear view...”
Graham Swift, Waterland

Albert Camus
“For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.”
Albert Camus, Summer in Algiers

Ian McEwan
“I like to think that it isn't weakness or evasion, but a final act of kindness, a stand against oblivion and despair, ...”
Ian McEwan, Atonement

Anne Tyler
“You ever wonder what a Martian might think if he happened to land near an emergency room? He’d see an ambulance whizzing in and everybody running out to meet it, tearing the doors open, grabbing up the stretcher, scurrying along with it. ‘Why,’ he’d say, ‘what a helpful planet, what kind and helpful creatures.’ He’d never guess we’re not always that way; that we had to, oh, put aside our natural selves to do it. ‘What a helpful race of beings,’ a Martian would say. Don’t you think so?”
Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist

Anne Tyler
“I'm beginning to think that maybe it's not just how much you love someone. Maybe what matters is who you are when you're with them.”
Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist
