Michel Faber
“These days, the bigger the company, the less you can figure out what it does.”
Michel Faber, The Book of Strange New Things

Raymond Carver
“Something’s died in me,” she goes. “It took a long time for it to do it, but it’s dead. You’ve killed something, just like you’d took an axe to it. Everything is dirt now.”
Raymond Carver, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love

Alain de Botton
“See how small your are next to the mountains. Accept what is bigger that you and what you do not understand. The world may appear illogical to you, but it does not follow that it is illogical per se. Our life is not the measure of all things: consider sublime places a reminder of human insignificance and frailty.”
Alain de Botton, The Art of Travel

Michel Faber
“The world changes too fast. You take your eyes off something that's always been there, and the next minute it's just a memory.”
Michel Faber, The Book of Strange New Things

Siri Hustvedt
“We are all dying one by one. We all smell of mortality, and we can't wash it off.”
Siri Hustvedt, The Summer Without Men
