Russell Banks
“When you have never done a thing before and that thing is not simply and clearly right or wrong, you frequently do not know if it is a cruel thing, you just go ahead and do it. Maybe later you'll be able to determine whether you acted cruelly. Too late, of course, but at least you'll know.”
Russell Banks, The Angel on the Roof

Mark Strand
“Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.”
Mark Strand, Selected Poems

Charles D'Ambrosio
“My ideal life is a quiet one. I like to read, to sit still in the same chair, with the lampshade at a certain angle, alone, or with Meagan nearby, and now and then, if I'm lucky, I'll come across a lovely phrase or fine sentiment, look up from my book, and feel the harmony of some notion, the justice of it, and know that everything is there. That's life to me, those privately discovered moments. ”
Charles D'Ambrosio, The Dead Fish Museum: Stories

Russell Banks
“Lists of books we re-read and books we can't finish tell more about us than about the relative worth of the books themselves”
Russell Banks
