"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning— So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."--The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald "It seemed so obvious now that it was too late: a story was a form of telepathy. By means of inking symbols onto a page, she was able to send thoughts and feelings from her mind to her readers. It was a magical process, so commonplace that no one stopped to wonder at it. Reading a sentence and understanding it was the same thing; as with the crooking of a finger, nothing lay between them. There was no gap during which the symbols were unraveled. You saw the word castle, and it was there, seen from some distance, with woods in high summer spread before it, the sir bluish and soft with smoke rising from the blacksmith’s forge, and a cobbled road twisting away into the green shade…"--Atonement by Ian McEwan "The Master said: Don't worry if people don't recognize your merits; worry that you may not recognize theirs." --The Analects of Confucius "...I think just the opposite—that thoughts are realest when thought, that expressing them distorts or dilutes them, that it is best for them to stay in the dark climate-controlled airport chapel of your mind, that if they’re released into the air and light they will be affected in a way that alters them, like film accidentally exposed." Someday This Pain will be Useful to You by Peter Cameron "One day I was talking to Cora. She prayed for me because she believed I was blind to sin, wanting me to kneel and pray too, because people to whom sin is just a matter of words, to them salvation is just words too."--As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner "[I]f I extracted one lesson from my tenth birthday party it was that expectations are dangerous when they are both high and unformed."-- We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
