Tom Robbins
“I believe in everything; nothing is sacred. I believe in nothing; everything is sacred. Ha Ha Ho Ho Hee Hee.”
Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Michael Chabon
“The problem, if anything, was precisely the opposite. I had too much to write:

too many fine and miserable buildings to construct and streets to name and clock towers to set chiming,

too many characters to raise up from the dirt like flowers whose petals I peeled down to the intricate frail organs within,

too many terrible genetic and fiduciary secrets to dig up and bury and dig up again,

too many divorces to grant,

heirs to disinherit,

trysts to arrange,

letters to misdirect into evil hands,

innocent children to slay with rheumatic fever,

women to leave unfulfilled and hopeless,

men to drive to adultery and theft,

fires to ignite at the hearts of ancient houses. ”
Michael Chabon, Wonder Boys

“You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”

Marcel Proust
“Like many intellectuals, he was incapable of saying a simple thing in a simple way”
Marcel Proust

Michael Cunningham
“Beauty is a whore, I like money better.”
Michael Cunningham, The Hours
