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

Jojo Moyes
“It was indeed a gift to have someone to love.”
Jojo Moyes, The Last Letter from Your Lover

John Hersey
“Green pine trees, cranes and
turtles ...
You must tell a story of your
hard times
And laugh twice.”
John Hersey, Hiroshima

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

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
