“And sometimes remember it will lead to a story, which makes it forever. That’s what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can’t remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except that story.”

The Things They Carried, Tim O’Brien

“The creak of bed springs suffering under the weight of a restless man is as lonely a sound as I know.”

-Patrick deWitt, The Sister Brothers

“Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”

The Iliad, Homer

“The incompetent leading the unwilling to do the unnecessary.”

-Evan Wright, Generation Kill

“Read sometimes for the story, Bobby. Don’t be like the book-snobs who won’t do that. Read sometimes for the words – the language. Don’t be like the play-it-safers that won’t do that. But when you find a book that has both good story and good words, treasure that book.”

― Stephen KingHearts in Atlantis
