Ta-Nehisi Coates
“. . . there was no golden era when evildoers did their business and loudly proclaimed it a such.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me

Kazuo Ishiguro
“But what is the sense in forever speculating what might have happened had such and such a moment turned out differently? One could presumably drive oneself to distraction in this way. In any case, while it is all very well to talk of ‘turning points’, one can surely only recognize such moments in retrospect. Naturally, when one looks back to such instances today, they may indeed take the appearance of being crucial, precious moments in one’s life; but of course, at the time, this was not the impression one had.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“If we do something over and over, it becomes normal. If we see the same thing over and over, it becomes normal.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, We Should All Be Feminists

Kazuo Ishiguro
“Today’s world is too foul a place for fine and noble instincts.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day

Ernest Hemingway
“They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
