André Maurois
“The art of reading is in great part that of acquiring a better understanding of life from one's encounter with it in a book. ”
André Maurois

Charles Finch
“ lived and died all the time by the peculiarities of their soul, which they could never expect one another to understand.”
Charles Finch, A Burial at Sea

Jeffrey Eugenides
“Historical fact: People stopped being people in 1913. That was the year Henry Ford put his cars on rollers and made his workers adopt the speed of the assembly line. At first, workers rebelled. They quit in droves, unable to accustom their bodies to the new pace of the age. Since then, however, the adaptation has been passed down: we've all inherited it to some degree, so that we plug right into joy-sticks and remotes, to repetitive motions of a hundred kinds.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

William Beckford
“Woe to the rash mortal who seeks to know that of which he should remain ignorant, and to undertake that which surpasseth his power!”
William Beckford, Vathek

Winston S. Churchill
“You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
Winston Churchill
