Book cover for Indiana
He loved society with its rules and its shackles because it offered him opportunities for struggle and resistance, and if he hated disorder and violence, it was because they promised insipid, easy pleasures.
Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Patricia Lockwood
“All my life I have overheard, all my life I have listened to what people will let slip when they think you are part of their we. A we is so powerful. It is the most corrupt and formidable institution on earth. Its hands are full of the crispest and most persuasive currency. Its mouth is full of received, repeating language. The we closes its ranks to protect the space inside it, where the air is different. It does not protect people. It protects its own shape.”
Patricia Lockwood, Priestdaddy: A Memoir

Sarah Addison Allen
“Oh, please. Everyone in this town always says that, like you have to be born here to understand things. I understand plenty. You're only as weird as you want to be.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

Mark Z. Danielewski
“'s big. If you can't fix it, give it a spin.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, Only Revolutions

Patricia Lockwood
“The question for someone who was raised in a closed circle and then leaves it, is what is the us, and what is the them, and how do you ever move from one to the other?”
Patricia Lockwood, Priestdaddy: A Memoir
