Francine Prose
“What I love is how pissed off Jane Eyre is. She's in a rage for the whole novel and the payoff is she gets to marry this blind guy who's toasted his wife in the attic." -Angela Argo "Blue Angel”
Francine Prose

Francine Prose
“People see everything through the lens of their obsessions.”
Francine Prose, Goldengrove

Will Schwalbe
“One of the many things I love about bound books is their sheer physicality. Electronic books live out of sight and out of mind. But printed books have body, presence. ... I often seek electronic books, but they never come after me. They may make me feel, but I can't feel them. They are all soul with no flesh, no texture, and no weight.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Abraham Lincoln
“There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes.”
Abraham Lincoln

Abraham   Verghese
“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone
