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

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

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

Ian McEwan
“A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended.”
Ian McEwan, Atonement

Albert Camus
“Sometimes at midnight, in the great silence of the sleep bound town, the doctor turned on his radio before going to bed for the few hours' sleep he allowed himself. And from the ends of the earth, across thousands of miles of land and sea, kindly, well-meaning speakers tried to voice their fellow-feeling, and indeed did so, but at the same time proved the utter incapacity of every man truly to share in the suffering that he cannot see. "Oran! Oran!" In vain the call rang over oceans, in vain Rieux listened hopefully; always the tide of eloquence began to flow, bringing home still more the unbridgeable gulf that lay between Grand and the speaker. "Oran, we're with you!" they called emotionally. But not, the doctor told himself, to love or to die together-- and that's the only way...”
Albert Camus, La Peste | The Plague
