David Sedaris
“If you're looking for sympathy you'll find it between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.”
David Sedaris, Barrel Fever: Stories and Essays

Thomas Hardy
“It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs.”
Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd

Mark Twain
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
Mark Twain

Jo Walton
“They were not always in accord, but over time they developed such good communication that even their most bitter disagreements became part of their axiomatic assumption of mutual long-term ongoing love and life together.”
Jo Walton, Or What You Will

Ayad Akhtar
“plunder, where enrichment was paramount and civil order always an afterthought. The fatherland in whose name—and for whose benefit—the predation continued was no longer a physical fatherland but a spiritual one: the American Self. Long trained to worship its desires—however discreet, however banal—rather than question them, as the classical tradition taught, ever-tumescent American self-regard was the pillaging patria, she said, and the marauding years of the Reagan regime had only expressed this enduring reality of American life with greater clarity and transparency than ever before.”
Ayad Akhtar, Homeland Elegies
