""Valley of the Moon" - Well, everyone in this story is kind of horrible. It was fine. The aimless and apathetic narrator and her relationship with her family isn't great, but it does feel she is allowing a fair amount of it." 5 hours, 22 min ago

Chuck Klosterman
“It has always been my belief that people are remembered for the sum of their accomplishments but defined by their singular failure.”
Chuck Klosterman, I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling With Villains

Maggie Stiefvater
Want and need were words that got eaten smaller and smaller: Freedom, autonomy, a perennial bank balance, a stainless-steel condo in a dustless city, a silky black car, to make out with Blue, eight hours of sleep, a cell phone, a bed, to kiss Blue just once, a blister-less heel, bacon for breakfast, to hold Blue's hand, one hour of sleep, toilet paper, deodorant, a soda, a minute to close his eyes.

What do you want, Adam?

To feel awake when my eyes are open.
Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves

Philip K. Dick
“But then one day, while lifting out an electric corn popper from under the sink, Arctor had hit his head on the corner of a kitchen cabinet directly above him. The pain, the cut in his scalp, so unexpected and undeserved, had for some reason cleared away the cobwebs. It flashed on him instantly that he didn't hate the kitchen cabinet: he hated his wife, his two daughters, his whole house, the back yard with its power mower, the garage, the radiant heating system, the front yard, the fence, the whole fucking place and everyone in it. He wanted a divorce; he wanted to split. And so he had, very soon. And entered, by degrees, a new and somber life lacking all of that.
Probably he should have regretted his decision. He had not.”
Philip K. Dick, A Scanner Darkly

Laini Taylor
“The senses have their limits, and we can never know how short they fall in revealing to us the truth of a vision, a scent, a sound.”
Laini Taylor, My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories

Maggie Stiefvater
“If you never saw the stars, candles were enough.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves
