“This was another of our fears: that Life wouldn't turn out to be like Literature.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

Ford Madox Ford
“So I shall just imagine myself for a fortnight or so at one side of the fireplace of a country cottage, with a sympathetic soul opposite me. And I shall go on talking, in a low voice while the sea sounds in the distance and overhead the great black flood of wind polishes the bright stars.”
Ford Madox Ford, The Good Soldier

Lloyd Jones
“A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is in flames.”
Lloyd Jones, Mister Pip

Graham Greene
“Sooner or later...one has to take sides. If one is to remain human.”
Graham Greene, The Quiet American
